Table runner quilted

 Last month I did a one day class via Zoom with Carole Lyles Shaw, you can read about it in this post. It was an Improv piecing class and I did a table runner because I wanted to learn the technique and not do a big quilt.

I am happy with the decision because I have already finished it.

As soon as I had completed the binding, I took a photo on our table.

It will be interesting to hear what the family say when they see it!

When we first went into the Covid lockdown in April, I did an online class with Tara Axford and it involved going on walks and looking at nature. I took a lot of photos around the neighbourhood and started to appreciate our Australian Native plants. So much so, that I went and bought some for our garden. It is Spring now and they are starting to get flower buds. 

Last weekend I went to inspect the garden and found a little Eastern Spoonbill loving our Banksia Ericifolia. I was thrilled, I had never seen one in our garden before.

I am looking forward to seeing our other native plants flowering, Maybe I might see some more little birds!

Bye for now,

I like your new table runner but I must admit that best of all is seeing that beautiful bird along with the amazing plant. Of course we don't have either here in Canada!

Thank you Magpie Mumblings, I couldn't believe that little bird was there. I had to use a zoom camera to get a close photo so he wouldn't fly away. I hope we see some more.
