what I am working on

Life was crazy the month of July. We camped 2 weekends in July. And one of the campouts is a big one so we left early , Thursday. My daughter has injured her other knee, tore the cartilage and may have to have surgery again. I am trying to start back to school and have been to the school 3 times to get things straight. It takes an act from God to start back to school. My little guy has a double ear infection again and may have to have surgery again. This would be his 3rd set of tubes. If I am not camping, then I am in an ER or at a doctors office , and if I am not there I am at the school. I am so happy July is over. Hoping for a much more peaceful August.
I didn't do a lot of sewing in July. I just didn't feel like it. Oh and I was sick the whole month of July too. I did start a cute BOM ( which I am only doing one month of) called "Chrissy Down Under" by McKenna Ryan. My son loves Australia and all the animals there.

Here is a better picture of the animals to top of Christmas baubles. I am just going to make it a wall hanging to hang up for Christmas. Where I work, Quilting Adventures, they have made 'kits' of all the blocks for this quilt. Which makes it so easy. All the fabric is picked and cut already. :o)
I did finish another stitchery for the "A Boy's Story" quit top. I am on my last block. :o)

But I didn't get my July month BOM done for my "little stitchies".

It is so lovely to see someone on the other side of the world making up something featuring our animals.

Even here, most Christmas decorations feature snow and Northern Hemisphere scenes.

Possums and Kookaburras both live in our backyard, (far right baubles) which is special because Kookaburras are not that common in the suburbs.

My parents had a resident Tawny Frogmouth for a while - they camouflage as a branch and are VERY hard to spot.

The Bilby is rare (endangered). I have never seen one (they are from the other end of Australia, where it is hot and dry), but at Easter there are always Chocolate Bilbies for sale, instead of the usual Bunnies.

Have fun sewing up the animals.
