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 New Year







Happy New Year to all my blog friends.  I hope you have the best year ahead and take some "me" time to stitch  and  sew and be with your family and friends.

We went tripping around over the Christmas break we went to Atherton NQ on the way we came across this fellow.

Gubulla Munda is a 60 metre carpet snake sculpture located in Plantation Park AYRE Nth Queensland.

We have visited Bundaberg many times but this time we actually visited the Cooperage (the place where barrels are made. )  and then went to went to the Bundaberg drinks factory. We will visit the Rum Factory next time. In Australia "bundaberg rum is very famous and the logo is a big polar bear, you may have seen it on television.  They use the barrels in the rum factory and you can actually have your own barrels made at the cooperage.





The drinks factory entrance  ( a big barrel)  famous for its ginger beer.

Finally finished a Rosalie Quinlan stitchery, this has been totally done while travelling in the car. Its taken a while ...
It will be a cushion soon .... Sorry no iron.


The world should be full of this 

This is my next car project .......I will frame it for Evelyn's room at home. Another of Rosalie's projects but I am doing it in pink not red.
 Sorry about the photos but this is all I could manage if I wanted to get this blog done.
