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.

Thimbles

Chooky's post inspired me to show my thimble  collection. They come from all around Australia and the world.

The girls in our sewing group often bring us thimbles back from their travels.

My favourite one I actually use - from China ( the panda)   and  some of my favourites but most useless .

What a lovely collection. As a real Texan, I can tell you that "Don't mess with Texas" was an anti littering public service campaign for years. There were ads on tv and also bumper stickers for cars that were very popular and common to see. I have been in Australia for 9 years, so I haven't seen one in a long time, but I remember them well. xx debbie
