Feathers and Fur

Feathers: I completed this quilt tonight, and tomorrow when I'm not quite so tired I will put it in my Etsy shop - and blog it properly.
Fur: We had another koala in or garden topday. James insistently pointed out the 'animal' as we were getting in the car this morning, and finally I spotted it - only the arm was visible from where we were. She (her pouch was clearly visible when she climbed up) was at eye-level and very friendly, and we put out a large bowl of water as it was a stinking hot day. She had a good sniff of my hand, and rather enjoyed a gentle pat. She was there still/again when we got home. I did take photos, but they're on my phone, and I've no idea how to do anything with them from there!

Oh that turned out fabulously - love it! I am always amazed when I hear about stories of koala bears up so close and personal, never having seen one in person! Another reason for a trip downunder!
