A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block. I share with you my patchwork & quilting, knitting, paper crafts, cooking and life in general.

Colourful Friday

I loved working on this post.  Only problem is that I've got a bad 'flu (so has my dearest Hubby) and have not added as many things as I would have like to...so here goes...

Here is a journal I made using The Graphics Fairy art work and which I linked to Brag Monday  last week and which I entered into Sketch Saturday's #158 Challenge.  The colours of course were inspired by Robyn at Daisy Quilts.  Hope you like it.

You can read more about the china here and it's show cased with a persimmon (a fruit I love, the soft variety, that is), and a tangelo.

Thanks Robyn for the inspiration...

Nature just loves colours...here is a pair of rainbow lorikeets feeding on our verandah.
Blue and Orange go beautifully together.  

Hope you all have a happy weekend and that you all stay healthy.
