There was a chattering of Musk Parrots in the air, so I went to investigate.
In the next door year was an apple tree, denuded of leaves, it is winter here, but full of Apples and birds, a flock of about 30. They were having a lovely time eating ,fighting, and just being . They love the apples , appropriately called Delicious.
You need to look closely, my camera needs another lens I think
All of a sudden they all as one looked to the left as in flew the enemy, who just wanted to annoy them, not even eat apples. The next week the tree had dissappeared. So have the parrots.

I made the quilt "circle of Friends"for Miss Milly , just 20 months too late .
I made it and quilted it on the machine. I am so proud of it . My first proper quilting!!
Then my dear daughter told us they were gettign a new puppy. Her name is Indy ( we have been baby sitting through the week, to help toilet train her. she is so good. Best baby I ever had. So Of course she needed a blanket. I had some Dalmation fabric left over from a cushion I made Al. So I just threw it together the night before we left, it wont win any prizes but it is her blanket and It looks better in real life than this. (She has a big brother Beau at home) The weather has been so cold and windy too , so needed to be kept warm.
The next day off we went to get Indy and here she is .
She sleeps with the tongue out, she barks and sucks and runs all in her sleep.
I think we like her a bit dont you?
