Do you like the unusual? My new FREE Project on my website is for a very unusual flower made from what looks like one half of a zipper. Called ZipR® Trim and available in 6 colours. You may use ZipR® Trim as a piping and trim, or cut and form into shapes such as flowers and leaves for dimensional appliques. This is fun and makes a great corsage or embellishment on the front of a bag - all the rage today!
Can anyone tell me what kind of bird this is please?
They have made their home along the banks of our dam and no-one here has seen them in this area before. Extremely long legs, so obviously quite accustomed to the water and maybe have settled here after all the rain we've received in recent months.
As I said, we've had more rain here than we've had for years - isn't it lovely to see everyone sharing their happiness in the water, swimming or muddling around? There must be 40 ducks living there at present time, lots of little babies.
When John harvested the Lucerne Crops recently, it disturbed the Hares making their home there. I captured one oblivious to my presence though I have zoomed in on him. Looks healthy, doesn't he? Amazing what I'm finding on my walks around the lower part of our property. The very early mornings are just magical. I love living in the bush. The birds are music to anyone's ears. I've seen White Cockatoos, Pink & Grey Galahs, Kookaburras, Crimson Rosellas, Budgerigars and the usual Magpies, Crows, Pidgeons, Sparrows and some I don't know about.
Judy & John Hall live on 100 acres in a small country town, The Rock, (near Wagga Wagga in the Riverina) N.S.W. Australia – inland, about halfway between Melbourne and Sydney. Here they run their Mail Order business as well as an Emu Farm and breed sheep.
Judy loves sewing in general, anything to do with a sewing machine be it quilting, embroidery, home décor, crafts or clothing. She holds Retreats at The Rock as well as teaching and lecturing on the Show Circuit in every State of Australia and writes editorials for many National Magazines.
