Oh my goodness I am so glad yesterday is over. A scorcher of a day about 45 degrees Celsius in the shade. I just stayed inside watching the Australian Open Tennis on the television. I have been enjoying the tennis again this year. It is something I look forward to. Nothing like watching rich tennis players arguing with the umpire and grunting each time they hit the ball!!! Seriously we have seen some amazing tennis and it continues this week. I was hoping to have some photo's of the completed "Sunflowers & Sunshine" quilt but they are on the other computer. I will have to transfer the photo's later on and show them in a future posting. I dropped the quilt of to the quilters along with my tablecloth that I had finished last year. I also dropped the recent cross stitch to the framers. So it will be bread and dripping over the next month while I save up to pay for them.
Over the past week I have been finished of Paula's latest free Block of the Month, called Redwork Love Is.
I added another stitchery square because I had mine 5 blocks across instead of four. I think the block I added is rather appropriate. Plus it adds my personal touch to the quilt. Thank you once again Paula for a great pattern.
Seeing I can't show you photo's of my "Sunflower & Sunshine" quilt I will show you some photo's of a visitor we have to our place on a fairly regular basis. I heard something banging on the security screens the other day and went to investigate. I opened the curtains,looked to the right nothing looked to the left and saw the neighbours cat. I banged on the window to get rid of him.
A little while later Ian came home from work and the banging started again. We both went to investigate. No cat but this was hanging on the door.
It was our resident Bungarra. This is his tail. I presume it is a male, I really don't know.
Here you can see his markings on his skin and his feet.
Here his his face. He was upside down. He stayed there for a few minutes then dropped to the ground and he was of across the block within a few seconds. They are fast runners. The Bungarra has been around Kainga for a couple of years now. I saw him in the garden the other week. I think he also lives across the road at some neighbours because they have talked about him also. Last summer I heard him on a very hot day in the gutter. Looked out and he was poking his head out looking at me.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend. It is only going to be 35 here today. That is about the hottest I like before it gets uncomfortable for me.
