A bit of fun............

You are maybe aware of goats travelling the world via a connection of bloggers (namely The Sisterhood of the Travelling Goat) A few blog posts ago I wrote that Billy Goat Gruffles went off to visit in North Dakota - I await anxiously to hear he has landed safely.

Gertrude the Goat has come over to Queensland from Maria in Western Australia. She arrived a little bit ruffled from spending the best part of a week stuffed into an envelope!  She brought me the sweetest gift tag with her - so very thoughtful and kind..... It is very pleasant weather at the moment and she has been able to explore the nearest city (Toowoomba), wonderful gardens in spring-time....


An important reason for her travels is that she finds a long-term home so several pictures were taken so I could get an idea of her favourite things ....


~ most definitely a range of colours and textures ~


and being the indulgent animal lover I am.... she got colour and texture.....

Once I get can her back into an envelope (she is just a little bit reluctant!) she will go visit Laura for a bit of pampering.....

While Gertrude has been wandering (she likes to explore alone) I finished my Daisy-Do - a design by Jenny of ELEFANTZ.....


AND.... I have been lucky, lucky, lucky .....


Nola sent me these pretty Christmas fabrics..... I know exactly what I want to make....

 
Flooring is being done so I am holed up inside my sewing room/computer room (what bliss)
~ there is something owlish going on ~
