No Sheep for You!

My swap parcel arrived last night and I am thrilled. The wonderful AliMachenMachen was my swap partner and sent me this wonderful parcel.

This is the second time that I have been so fortunate as to be Ali's swap partner. Much to my delight the coffee, chocolate and sun hat came in one of her wonderful little project bags.

The hat is simply perfect and had its first outing today when I went birdwatching.

We went birdwatching at the slate quarry in Bullengarook. Only saw 22 species, although that is pretty good for these dry times. The highlight of the morning was a great sighting of the yellow-tufted honeyeater. A real little stunner.

I'm glad you liked it! And it looks like it fits, which is a relief - I made it to fit my head, but I have a big head.
