Feathers and another visitor!

I've finished another feather for Jude's feather project. The background is tea dyed, the feather is appliqued and another feather has been stitched over the top. The fabric has all come from the op shop shirt I bought. I've now made five feathers and have some more fabric left, so it was a good buy for $3!
I found a beautiful gift card today which I just had to buy! It depicts the male and female tail feathers  of the Red Tailed Black Cockatoo. They are only found in certain areas of Australia. The artwork is by Jo Lane. She has also done some other beautiful drawings of feathers.
Another visitor to the caravan today! Hard to believe this is a spider. He's not very big but a very strange shape! Quite alien!
