For my Australian friends


Here in England we've been hearing about the devastating fires in Australia but there's so little we can do to help. It occurred to BC3 that another animal design may be useful for my Australian friends to make to raise funds to help the wildlife. I've already done a kangaroo with it's joey so a koala sprang to mind as the 'next project'.

I only started this less than two weeks ago so it's a really quick one for me. Mainly, I'll admit, because I got focussed because of the impact to wildlife 'down under' is so devastating so I kept going. Judith made a couple of suggestions (thank YOU) which finally added the finishing touches. 

Another Australian friend (thank you, Jenni) then wrote to ask me for help with designing a kangaroo or koala - this was the day after I'd completed mine so I wrote back with advice on making animals and the pattern to test!!! I think (or hope) she was a little surprised!!!

As soon as she gets back to me with her alterations (which she now has) I'll finish uploading all the pictures and links. Meanwhile get out your black and grey thread ready!!!  Oh, and a couple of beads for the eyes!!!

Oh Jane. She’s beautiful. I’m sure she’s a girl, and so sweet. I love the way you capture the essence of animals with just a few tweaks if your stitches.

Wonderful, Jane! Koalas are even nicer to cuddle, so come on over to Oz.

Would love to cuddle a koala, Judith and meet up with you again too.
Thanks for letting me know she’s a lady koala, Bev!
