A rainbow, a rat and some mice!

A rainbow greeted us on the beach this morning. Beautiful!



We had a visitor on the lawn the other day after I threw some scraps of bread out for the magpies! Not sure if it's a bush rat or a 'real' rat. Hopefully the former! He dashed backwards and forwards into the bushes carrying some of the crusts. Very cute!



I also have a family of mice!  I have a teaching engagement once a year and like to make the participants a small gift. This year it is a mouse pincushion. Fiddly but fun to make. They each ended up with their own personality!




There has been a bit more progress on my Travelers Blanket with another block stitched. Straight stitches and colonial knots. This one reminds me of all the different seaweed we see on the beach.
