Busy Quilting

My poor old blog has been neglected since we got home from the outback.
We had a wonderful time, and seeing the outback after the rain was truly amazing.  Inspirational landscapes.  We experienced a bit of everything, rainforest, stony desert, beach and bush.  Animal life was in abundance, and because of all the floods earlier in the year the birdlife was prolific around the creeks, rivers and water ways.
Since coming home our feet have hit the ground running.  Work stuff to catch up on, family and friends to catch up with and quilting to finish.  That last one is the challenge.  Our quilt group exhibition starts on 17 September and I have one only quilt to show and it is not quite completed.  Just one side of the border to hand quilt, then the binding and label and I’m done.  I do have my small A4 art journal quilts to exhibit too and a couple of them to finish off also.  Yikes!!
I will leave you with pictures of some animals we saw on our travels.  We saw lots lots more but unable to capture them on film.  We saw wild boars, emu chicks with father crossing the road in front of us, large kangaroos, dingoes, flocks of corellas and heaps of other birds.
