Welcome to Shiralee Stitches. I live on a cattle farm in Australia with my family.
I am passionate about all things fabric so much so I started my own online and mobile store. Link is on the sidebar to my store. I teach patchwork classes and take my shop to quilting and patchwork groups and also attend various craft markets.
I love English Paper Piecing, applique, machine quilting, working with woven wools. I have started making my own designs which I love.

I have twins!!!

Well now I have your attention, I must confess these twins are not of the human variety!!!

...........Check out these little treasures.....


Mrs Willy Wagtail has made her nest right on my washing line!!!

If I am hanging washing out quietly on my own, she is quite happy to sit on her nest with me nearby.
The babies are so cute and growing very fast. Here's Mum......
 ....and even happy amongst the flapping washing......
The nest is so exposed, I am worried as we have lots of Kookaburras around. So....fingers crossed these babies will fly from the nest soon.......

........isn't nature wonderful?.......

.....I'll have some sewing to show you soon.....

You are so lucky. They are so cute. We had a nest and hatched babies but it is gone now :( They did manage to raise three babies last year though.
