Makes us sad too but they will displace the local lorikeet and parrot species that live in Tasmania. Some are endangered and are so in need of safe nesting places and habitats. The rainbow lorikeets are bullies and dominant, I guess its not their turf

Makes sense, but sometimes I feel that government bullies are really awful. There are several species of parrots which have escaped captivity and live on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. The people who have assisted them are being charged!

The planet is changing, I wonder how many species are on the move to more habitable climates, like the rainbow lorikeets?

Might need to go back and trim the pelican's legs close to the edge of the white so that they don't shadow so badly. That gum tree looks like a beast of a block. I've seen a small amount of overlay onto other blocks but that is ridiculous! Shocked
You are getting a lot done. I'm loving the fabrics.

She went for the cliche "Silver Bells". Yours is now, well yours. Personalizing it makes it better.

Oh the dark gloomier background but Im doing mine in sky blues for the background so the pale colours didnt show. Im thinking I might even redo the first block Santa as it bugs me that its got a night time sky, no way anyone, let alone Santa would surf at night in Australia. Ive swum at night but sitting on a surfboard with ya legs dangling, no way hosea
