Australia Day

Happy Australia Day… to celebrate, I made a koala plushie. I bought a fabric panel of an owl and a koala at the Wallsend Community markets last month, so thought today was the right day to make this Aussie icon.
Australia Day was a rather lazy day. . A morning walk and then we retreated quickly back inside to escape the heat. I put a small indoors thermometer outside to test it out – it gave up! Obviously over 40degrees! We only went outside because we had to. We celebrated Australia day tonight by cooking, taking and sharing a slow cooked lamb dinner with my friend and my sister-in-law, both patients in hospital. Much better we’re told than hospital food! Here's a special thought for Australia Day: "Close your eyes... and think of the land that gave you life and breath, and think of all the reasons you are glad to be there, with the people you know, with the people you love."  from The Double Comfort Safari Club by Alexander McCall Smith.

This week has been a slow creative week – I finished off a few things on the go. I am hoping to bring back into production my Feltfollies and Socksillies. Today I completed Feltfollie Feel Good and a sock pixie.

Please look out for my next blog on 30th January to celebrate the One World One Heart worldwide blog giveaway. I will have some goodies to giveaway from my blog, and I have also donated a little art doll which will be given away from the Art Dolls Only Blog.

And ... Happy Birthday to our grandson . May you always reach the goals you set for yourself.
