It is nice to connect with my Blogger friends. Hope this post finds you all well.
Not much sewing happening here but I did make a Cancer Awareness Ribbon block for the wall in my sewing room.
3 1/2 yrs ago I had the bad news of early breast cancer, invasive ductul carcinoma in situ (DCIS). There is no one way to approach a diagnosis of early breast cancer. You have to acknowledge what is happening, deal with the treatment and other aspects of your life. 3/12 years on I am cancer free. I guess the person we are today is the sum of our life experiences. A serious life event challenges us to dig deep and think what is more meaningful and important in life and relationships.
I received a parcel in the mail from my friend Eva who I met through blogging. Eva is from the Czech Republic and has sent me some beautiful handwork and information about her hobbies and where she lives in in the Czech Republic. In a beautiful city named Chodov. Thank you Eva.
The small Wattle trees across from my front door in the bush are in bloom .They are so bright and yellow I couldn't resist to pick a 'little' bit . Wattle is protected as it is the floral emblem for Australia so I shouldn't really pick it!!.
It is also used for Bush Tucker. Useing the Wattle Seed has been the mainstay in the diet of Indigenous Australians for thousands of years and has now a diverse number of uses in the kitchen.
Some RECIPES are:
Wattle Seed Crocodile with Wild Fruit, Wattle Seed Tiramisu, Wattle Seed Macadamia Nut Anzac Biscuits.
Wattle Seed is available in the Bush Food shops.
We have had Milo our Cockateil with us for 5 weeks now and he is getting very cheeky.
He is so funny and naughty at times for a bird and has started saying some words. The words he clearly says is What are you doing !! and other words we can't make out at the moment as he is running them in together. He loves getting his head scratched and comes over to get it done when you tell him.
I am planning to get heaps of sewing in this week as I have a few projects nearly finished.
Have a happy sewing week.
