A year ago

A year ago today I started this blog while I was on a holiday in the tropics. Mission Beach is south of Cairns in Far North Queensland. I am back here again for the third year in a row and for a longer holiday this time. It is a beautiful place but has changed dramatically since last year. Cyclone Yasi decimated all the rainforest and everything looks quite different. It will take a long time to recover.
But the sun is shining, the man is out fishing and we are with lovely friends!
Last year I was working on my 'leaf creatures' as part of Jude Hill's Patchwork Beasts online workshop. This year I have brought several works-in-progress to stitch on, but I am also going to stitch a feather for the Magic Feather Project. I may have to go searching for a few supplies!
Also a warm thank you to the beautiful Kerri who helped get me started on this blogging journey. It's been a huge learning curve with the computer skills, but I've had so much fun and 'met' some amazing people.


  1. Aw, Deb! I can't believe it's been a year already! I hope you have enjoyed your journey into the blogging world, and like you say it is full of amazing people much like yourself. It's been such a pleasure meeting you and getting to know you :)

  2. Would love to see your new leaf creature! Glad to have met you too, Deb....happy birthday to you ~
