We have some unusual looking birds visit our garden lately and I think its because their habitats have been destroyed. Thousands of acres cleared to make way for the new King Shaka airport. Such a shame!
click on pictures to view close up
dashed inside for my camera ,he wasnt a bit concerned about me being there snapping away and even started showing off, he turned around,stretching his wings and posed like this for ages.
We enjoyed watching them and all the other smaller birds that are here everyday.
It was too hot and humid to do anything so indulged in my favourites
Time to watch Lark rise to Candleford followed by Cranford on BBC entertainment. I love Judi Dench.

Meet Jacqueline de Jonge
by CarolynSeveral Quilt Markets ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Jacqueline de Jonge, the amazing designer of the Be Colourful patterns. Her foundation-pieced designs are full of rich, vibrant colors. I caught up with her in Houston at Quilt Market and asked her to be a guest blogger for us. She also gave me some of her patterns and a set of note cards to give away on this blog. Leave a comment telling us your favorite color combinations to work with in a quilt, and I’ll randomly draw 5 names on Tuesday, November 10th around noon. Each winner will receive one of Jacqueline’s patterns or the set of note cards.
Check out her site and all her wonderful quilts.www.becolourful.com I copied this from Quiltypleasures blog.www.quiltmaker.com/blogs/quiltypleasures/
