WIP - first draft

All these circles were bought at a garage sale - think the previous owner was going to make lots of suffolk puffs (yo-yos).  I fused them & am trying to work out a design - not sure - still thinking.

MailArt Box

 I needed something to put my postcards in - bought the little decoupage box at Spotlight and covered it with old maps - so easy & am pleased with the result.

MailArt from the States

 Laura from the States sent me these 2 pieces in the envelope below.  The page used to make the envelope was of a quilt called "The Show Must Go On" .  The stamps are great too - Jimi Hendrix & Janis Joplin & a goat..... it brightened my day.

Wheelchair quilts

 Wheelchair quilts made for the Aged Care facility that looks after my aunt.   Made two & a friend made the top below.  I have a few more to make before winter gets here.

Mon Repos Turtle Hatchery

We found out a little more about turtles at Mon Repos Hatchery - wish we could have gone on a tour but time didn't allow.

 The little apartment we stayed in at Bundaberg above the Art Gallery.
 View of the river as we had Sunday breakfast - not bad - the MGs in the car park pleased HofM.
Hinkler's English home was brought from England and rebuilt in the Botanical Gardens - exactly as it was...... such tiny rooms.
