About Me- Bird on the Border

My Photo
I am so blessed to be a wife,mum and a grandma. Our wonderful son and his lovely wife have just had a daughter. My little family complete. My husband and I both work full time. We enjoy travelling, going in our caravan, dining out and spending time with friends and visiting our children whenever we can. Oh shouldn't forget "Tess" the spoilt black kelpie. I love anything country and Shabby Chic and I love patchwork and stitching and getting together with like minded ladies who love to do the same. Just wish I had time to do more. I love catching up with friends over a cup of coffee , and the smell of biscuits cooking in the oven on a rainy day. I enjoy keeping in touch with the many friends I have met through blogging and sharing our sewing and our lives on our blogs. I love going off on stitching retreats and quilting weekends with my quilting buddy and friends. And of course I love the birds in my garden. I also write the blog for our local quilt group Macintyre Quilters which you find on the side bar.

Happy Easter from the Grand Canyon, Arizona.

Happy Easter to Everyone.  Right now we are at the Grand Canyon....What a good job Mother Nature has done here....We were also lucky enough to go out on a steam train as it was Earth Day yesterday. Outside its one degree... It's been a little cold and rainy at night. But beautiful. We were also treated to a Navajos Indian dance display ....

A Little more Disney



A little more Disney




Couldn't resist snapping these Micky Mouse Ears.



When Dreams come True



Disneyland was a spectacular day. When you think about it I have waited 50 years to go there,ever since watching Disneyland every Sunday night when I was a kid. Let me tell you it was worth the wait. The fantasy,the artistry,the rides,the fun,the displays and the parades. Better photos when I get home..







Not the best photos yet ...still working on it....

Arrived in LA



Reminiscing about The Eagles and Hotel California .Sorry couldn't keep the tourist out of the pic when I was taking it while Bernie was driving .



Found this amazing shop front display in Santa Monica Mall ...two entire walls of old sewing machines .  Awesome.

Happy Easter Baby



I think she likes it. The ears and the face make it easy to hang onto and swing around and I put Bells in his ears to make lots of noise..... The photo is not great ..sorry
