UPDATED: No 2 finished this evening 6.00pm Wednesday. This one is our Black Cockatoo, thru also have Red feathers so I’ll make one with those colours. I’ve just got to go and reduce size before I add it.

Hi Gals, I've managed to begin the Bird section of my Cot quilt for my new Great Niece to be - arriving some time late April.

This is also from Sweetpea an Australian in the Hoop design of their native birds. This first one is one of our Eastern Rosellas. I've just changed the colours to suit my quilt. I've got another 6 to go!

Thank you to all of those who know me well and for your prayers. Love Chris

Chris, these are as lovely as can be and the colors--wow. I'm glad you are still getting all these embroideries done and with all the sorting and moving of your mom's possessions. I have another sister and brother who helped me not one bit with moving mom or taking her to Dr visits or much of anything. I am the youngest daughter and because of my training I guess they thought I could understand all things and just do it all. I left them all mom's info typed up in case something happened to me that I couldn't carry on. My brother said was on top of his fridge, my oldest sister I am sure wouldn't have even been able to find her sealed notes and my other sister who is now deceased I didn't even bother with. God bless you and keep you. Patti

Thanks so much Patti. Yes I agree with you, I love the colours of our Australian Fauna.
With regards to clearing out Mum's house it's all done and the new young expectant parents take possession on Monday.
Mum doesn't know and her Doctor told me not to tell her as it might make her depressed. She hasn't asked about the house, so I don't bring it up. I don't she has that much attachment to it as their home in Adelaide, South Australia, where we grew up in. They were there for 42 years and only 19 in this home here in Mount Hutton. She is settling in at the Nursing home and enjoying the company and great food! Love Chris

Thanks so much and I'm sorry not to write your first name as I don't have it on my Database. I'm in love with these appliques and absolutely love doing them. I can't wait to get the next one started, it's just been put into my machine! Love Chris
