Bat Flower

One bud & one flower from the same plant - it looks like HofM may have found the right spot for these plants.

So cute!

A friend gave me her dog's old quilt - sadly Sal died over 12 months ago. We didn't know how Zeus would take to it - after really sniffing it, he decided it was pretty good & has claimed it as his own.

Help - which inner border????

Purple or black???? I'm leaning towards the purple but just want a bit of confirmation.  Making this for a friend's great-grandson.

Milton State School 125 Years young

The time capsule was buried in 1989 - due to be unearthed at the 125th anniversary (2014) - it survived the flood of 2011 - would the contents be OK?  A past principal had the honour of opening the lid. We breathed a sigh of relief - everything inside was in pristine condition.  Milton State School now has 600 students. Past students, parents & teachers witnessed the opening.

Local Japanese restaurant

A week or so ago - we had sushie at Mogo, Rosalie - food was great & I love the atmosphere.

Quilt Group Meeting

On the last Saturday of the month, I attend Queensland Quilters' Art Quilt group (2QAQ or 2Quack!) & last month, Ali  gave a little demo on a couple of techniques - one of them being Notan.  Above is one of my attempts - it was really fun.  Google it - it's a Japanese technique.
