Shirley here

We had a lovely drive through British Columbia and it was so good for both of us.

I am ready to get back to normal. I have been thinking about the 2nd Challenge and
I have decided what I am going to do and hopefully will accomplish my goal. It is
a 'challenging' challenge to say the least. I started it last night and I think it might work!

I enjoyed my two retreats, although I found they were too much so will only attend one
next year. They are side by side with no time in between, so 9 days retreating was a bit much.

Both were great and I learned a lot.

I finished thread painting my birds for my nephew's wedding and got them away to Ottawa.

I taught a miniature (l2 x 12 ) class and it went very well. I hope you all had a productive
June and July -- It is 'winter' in Australia -- so I hope you are enjoying the cooler time - grin.

I love your "pretty boy" delia. You do such great work.

Well, I think I will get down to work. Shirley

My Pretty Boy (Bird)

I have decide to post you a picture of my bird I did in the thread painting class all finished in a little sun dyed quilt.

I don't think you can see the quilting very well up close.
