A Bit of This & A dash of That.

I'm running late with posting again!  This is Cliff - our pet lorikeet who has been in the family for a good number of years now since our son Jaron bought him when he was at school in Year 10 (now he's 24 with a family of his own).  Cliff decided to pull out alot of his feathers + in this photo, he just finished having a bath - truely a sight!   He got rather upset today when ..............


This Ibis came looking for some food!  Cliff, who can mimick most things, barked so the dogs would come running to scare it away!




And now here at last are my one flower wednesday flowers for the past 3 weeks.  The little flower with the blue petals....... the blue & the patterned colour are currently being used in the quilt I'm making for little "Nemo" - our grandchild due in July!  Hope you like the colours Nay.  I'll post a photo of the quilt before long..... very close to being finished!   - Meanwhile,  Stace reminds me she is still waiting for me to finish quilting & binding her quilt.  Looks like I could be busy this weekend.
Oh, & for those wondering what's happening workwise.   Looks like I was successful in getting my old job back.  So I'll be back working 3 days a week..........  glad I've made the most of the time getting lots done here to help get us nicely settled in.   Tomorrow we even have the roofer arriving to fix all the leaking guttering!
