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.

A Little Creativity.


Stef ,Gail and I had a visit with Kerry at the "Cottage on the Hill



Twin quilts for my new twin bedroom when I redecorate  - bad photo they are very blue in real life






Our Senior art show was last night.  My niece was a model in this one . Very clever with photography...She was body painted then then an  image was projected and the photo taken...pretty cool.




This is one of her works- clever it is milk in paint.



This is another - folds of sheer fabric photographed in a special way - looks like an insect I think....may be ribs?

This is another of her works where she is a tribal bride...... I am so lucky to have  such a lovely and talented niece.


Many young people are so talented. I think I am lucky to work with them every day.... 


My sewing Bits and Bobs by Natalie Bird are almost complete. The cup bag still to be lined.








A sneak peek at a project from you know who....
Finally I leave you with another art work.. Ladies how would you like this in your laundry.......??????

HI! Jenny, Your neice is very talented. Your quilts are lovely and the fabric and colours are beautiful. I didn't realise you where in Goondiwindi and we were there in August staying in the caravan. I would have said hello!
