Mixed Bag

I was a little excited to come home from work this evening and find the postman had delivered a copy of Down Under Quilts magazine. Some time ago Linda Robertus had asked if I would like to contribute some photos of my rainbow monkey quilt for the animal quilts addition. I happily sent in some photos and a blurb thinking that maybe one photo would be included, but to my surprise  I got two pages all to! It is a great compliment and I feel pretty chuffed!

Speaking of animals : My son Caleb, my husband and a group of friends went on a fishing charter near Whyalla, South Australia. It was a very successful expedition as they bagged out (got their allocated quoted of fish) in a very short time , by 0730 in the morning. We now have a very impressive haul of snapper in the freezer, some fresh to cook for dinner tomorrow night and even the neighbours were given a portion of fish. I love fresh fish- there is nothing like freshly caught fish- I wont eat shop bought any more. My family have ruined me for life. They are impressive looking snapper, are they not?

And lastly a couple of animals of a different kind. Check out this monster cake my daughter and her friend made. It gives me sore teeth just looking at it...choc lovers delight!

  1. Congratulations on your monkeys in the magazine.
    You must be so proud!

    The monkeys really deserve to be printed, they are wonderful.

    I also like the pictures of the fishermen and the one of the girls with the cake. which one is your daughter? The brown-eyed or the blue-eyed girl?
    How old are your children?

    Have a nice week this week,



I enjoy hearing from you and look forward to your comments
