Little folk made of Cloth

Meet these little folk.
They are made of cloth. Cut with care, painted and carefully dressed.

Priscilla and Paul.
p.s. notice I am showing you their backs first. They look better from the back!

A Fellow Blogger from Twizel

While out walking this morning. I noticed a car driving slowly past my house. Being on the main road we often see travellers who are uncertain of their destination. This car pulled up outside my gate and I immediately noticed the 'Rowan Tree Quilting' sign on the door.
Out hops a lovely lady called Shiree followed by a bouncy puppy. The lady is Shiree Johnston of
Twizel  at   The Rowan Tree.   blog.
Shiree has a quilting shop at her home and does workshops as you will see on her blog.
What a lovely surprise, Shiree.  You made my morning.  Thankyou for calling.

Beach Art

My Grandaughter, Chloe is an enthusiastic artist. I love her 'beach art' which she did recently.
I love the big smile.

I hope your weekend is a good one. We will be away to Central Otago for a mini family gathering.
When I return I will post some of the crafty stuff I've been doing.

Cheers, Joan

Happy New Year

Peter found this beautiful nest in one of my Bantry Bay Roses. Cleverly put togethor with
many pieces from our backyard, including feathers from our happy hens.

The work of art provides a very cosy home for these day old chicks. I was unable to see into
the nest so grabbed my camera and with one click we were able to see these two healthy and hungry
little chicks demanding to be fed.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer,
It sings because it has a song.
(Chinese Proverb)

Best Wishes to all of my readers for 2012.
May your year be one of happiness and fulfillment.
