The true harvest of life is is in the tints of the morning and is in the stardust caught...a segment of the rainbow.

I made this felt bird hanging for my dear friend Bethel and the pictures show it hanging in her garden. We had the pleasure of staying with her on our recent trip to visit our daughter in Bundaberg. I really enjoyed making these birds and would like to make some more, oh for enough hours in the day to achieve all I would like.

I have a wonderful group of creative friends and we get together for several weekends during the year. Today, we had a late Christmas get-together, due to many of us having lots of commitments before Christmas. Apart from having a lovely day in each others company, we exchange Kris Kringle gifts, where we each draw a name out of the had and make a gift the one of the Belle friends. This is the gift I made for Martina, I hope she liked it. The English Bone China small coffee cup and saucer was one from a set which I have had for many years and not used for coffee, so I thought that it would make a lovely gift for my friend with lots of pins and embellishments to complete it.
