A Bit of Sunday Everything

Brought out the rainforest floor rug hooking aspect of the project and am happy with the fiber choices I made. 

It didn’t take long for me to discover  the most essential tool for me to complete this Butterfly Rainforest:

A great To-Do List has been provided:

The flora and fauna are just wonderful. It took me about half an hour to walk 300 meters, taking photos of Bush Turkeys, Guinea Fowl, flowers, and research examples!

Sharing space: On the last Saturday in March, a local basketry group will be meeting here at the visitor’s centre also. I’m looking forward to working with the new materials available here. 

Looks like a shooting star that fell from the sky:

Spent time working on a small crochet piece while I sat to simply observe the space, see the flow of visitors, feel the light and get a good idea of how My piece would fit best. 

Had a great time meeting everyone in the drawing class taught by Fiona on Sunday. Learned a lot, laughed a lot. Thanks, Ladies!!

Wandered home through the bamboo forest walk and loved the colors and patterning of this species from India. 

This little gecko that has chosen to move in is soooo little he’s clear. One can see through his toes! Not even 2 inches from nose to tail we keep stumbling over each other in the house. Not sure how well he’ll survive in the wild if he can’t even avoid a danger as large as I. This is Australia, most bugs are bigger than he! Good luck little buddy.
