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.

2Q Challenge on display

"Classy" - my entry into Qld Quilters Challenge this year.  The theme was 30 - in celebration of 2Q's 30th Anniversary. The complete display will be at Stitches & Craft currently on at the Convention Centre here in Brisbane from today through till Sunday.  There is also a display of modern quilts by the new group within 2Q - 2QModern.  Am hoping to get over to see this plus check out what's on offer through the vendors.

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.

More visitors

The flying fix delighted our German visitor & we shooed him off before he took a liking to our pawpaws. Glad he didn't find out how delicious they were.

Backyard visitors

The pink bear has a couple of travelling companions - Julie & Aaron - the bear was the silent type but his friends kept us entertained.
