Frogs and Quilts.

Last night I was already in bed reading when R called out, "You've just got to get up and see this . You'll love it." Which was quite correct. We haven't seen one for ages and here because of heavy rain earlier was a tiny green Tree Frog uoside down on the office window. I got this photo of his belly . Guess it was catching insects. R took some short video clips on his ipod but it wasn't making any sound right then and the reflections on the window glass were a problem. We often hear them at night - the sound is very like a cricket.

Yesterday was our first time back at the Friday group of Tauranga Patchwork and Quilting Group. ( and it is no longer me having to take the meetings  - That felt good. ) I did get there early and help new ones with unlocking and the alarm system and as it happened ended up locking up too. We had a power outage at 1.30 pm which meant I couldn't carry on sewing ( or see to well, so we sat and talked ) I was working on my bandanna quilt. Some of the ladies have finished theirs.

The new Committe is carrying on having Quilt Journeys as everyone was enjoying them so much. Yesterday T had hers she has been quilting for about 20 years, and had loads of quilts to show. Here is her largest one.

 I hope to get some more sewing done on mine this weekend. Some more bandannas have been donated and now I have some more of the ones I was using so may rethink part of it.
Everything is very wet outside but the sun is shinning and we can do some outdoor things as well. Do have a lovely weekend everyone.

Love the little green frog. We see them in our garden-jungle at the moment- now and then.
Those quilts look very nice.

I like the bandanna quilts, a great way to use those Canteen bandannas. We have green tree frogs too!

That is a brilliant photo of the green frog. How lucky to see it.
The bandana quilts are great-well done ladies.
