yesterday I received my SSCS parcel. It came from Vickie who lives in australia. Thanks vickie, I love the ornament. It is a cross stitched reversible hanging ornament but i can't show you because he camera has packed a sad and everything comes out pink! Don't know what is wrong with it yet. i will open the other one closer toxmas i think......if i can wait that long.

Today I am trying to finish my bunnyhill bom block. It's nearly done just got to stitch my bird down. Then it will be just 1 more block to do.
I have joined a group on flicker that will be doing "Tea cups and coffeepots". That will be starting next year in january. just post 1 block a month. i should be able to manage that.

Well it's because they are stuffing their bellies full of new young kowhai tree shoots! My tree never has leaves on the branches except for the ends. They are to heavy to balance themselves there to be able to eat! I was about 3 feet away from this one as he sat there eating! His mate was there too but flew up to a high tree when he heard the door open. Here is a BIRDSEYE view!! he he!

Here is his mate high in the tree.

Yesterday I made this yougurt cheese. so easy and very tasty too! I found the recipe here She also makes some other very interesting recipes for soap, flowing soap . lots of very interesting yummy food! go and check out her blog. Here is my yogurt cheeses. I divided it in half after I made it . Flavoured one with half pkt mushroom soup mix , a squirt of tomatoe sauce , add a small can of shrimps, leave for half an hour or so for flavours to mingle then eat. so yummy!! The other i added some cumin , salt to taste ,black pepper. herbs of your choice. I use to make yogurt from scratch all the time, must get back into it . It is so easy!! worth the effort.

Un fortunaely there is something wrong with the camera as it keeps going 'pink' . I don't know why. Does anyone know what would cause this?? help!!
