I have been working on a new project. I have long intended to make items for hospitals to give to parents who have lost their tiny angels at birth. Anna is one of the three young former work colleagues who have been coming to some quilting lessons with me over the last few months. Tragically back in April of last year Anna lost her beautiful daughter Bridie, a few days before her due date.Together we are planning this new project in Bridie's memory. I plan on having a collection of items including the small bears in a previous post, some clothing and/or bunting and a 22 inch square small quilt with an embroidered bear as the centrepiece. I have been busily searching and collecting patterns from the internet and now think I have the base for this new project. We are going to start with the two hospitals in our region on the North West Coast of Tasmania.
Last night was another of our penguin guiding nights and we were treated to something very special. One of the penguins that is onshore to moult was peeking out of his burrow while it was still very bright so I was able to take some photos of him. I know it was a him because of the large hook on the end of his beak. I used the sunset setting on my camera to take most of the pics. Make sure you click on the pics to go to the larger view.
