Badgers Creek

Henry is staying with us for a couple of days and John is on holidays.  Coupled with that, the lovely spring weather in Melbourne, lured us out of bed and off we went on a geocaching adventure.  We headed over Healesville way to beautiful Badger Creek.
A magical place...we had a perfect day


Henry got a bit chilly in the shady fern filled dells, but didn't last long wearing John's jumper.
Nothing is more thrilling than wild creatures swooping down to share your lunch...we had taken a bit of wild bird seed too, but Henry's kookaburra preferred the salami from his sandwich.

I was very excited to see lovely Gail Pan's new book is about to be released.
I plan to buy a copy at the NOTYQ Quilt Exhibition, as Gail is to be one of our traders.  We have worked really hard to put this exhibition together so I hope, if you live near enough, you will come along. (I'll give all the details in a later post.) Gail's book is also available for pre-order on Amazon HERE.

How about some scrap busting today?  I've got lots of random hexie flowers in my sewing room so I think I will make some of these for the present basket.
There is a great tutorial HERE at Cintia's fabulous blog, My Poppet.  Enormous thanks to Cintia for all she so generously shares with us.
Hope you had a fun day
PS Tonight I'll be stitching along with my bloggy friends.  Pop over and visit lovely Cheryll to sign up.
