A Neighbourhood Visitor

We live quite close to a golf course with its obligatory residents... look what came meandering around the lawns of nearby homes...

I took this standing on my driveway, looking straight across the road to our neighbour's home. We are lucky enough to have a family of 3 kangaroos who regularly mosey around our little area, the one pictured is the baby.

I know that many Aussies joke that overseas visitors might think that roos are hopping down our streets,
& koalas are hanging from our trees...
but in my neighbourhood, the kangaroos really are regular visitors!
How lucky are we?!

I am making good progress with my efforts for the Mug Rug Swap, & I'm excited to think that my creation will eventually go its new home in the USA. And I've already got some great ideas for the COLOUR swap.
I thought that swaps were always 'secret' but now I'm actually joining in with some swaps, I understand that's not the case. So as long as I remember which of the swaps I'm currently in are secret & which are not, I should be fine!
At this point, I must declare that I've never actually made a mug rug. So I looked at a zillion of them online, then came up with my own plan. (Now I know that mug rugs are easy for most creative people) 
All this blogging & swapping is giving me encouragement to try making new things, & I'm loving it!

Have a lovely Sunday everyone!

Mug rugs are such fun, cute little projects...and practical! I like that in a project :)
We don't have any wildlife visiting now that we live in Perth, but in NSW we had koalas in our trees, and blue-tongue lizards in our water pipes...and usually a snake or two in Summer :0
