Now for those of you who live on properties this would not be anything unusual but ...for me, well.... I live in a small coastal town but do have a bush reserve behind me. I guess after 15 or so years living in this house this is only the 2nd snake I have encountered - the first being a baby red-belly making it's way through my laundry...but this snake was BIG but harmless being a Diamond Python - though that doesn't make it any more pleasant to have around!! First saw it as it was peering over the gutter on my back veranda - made a quick dash inside to get the camera and then kept an eye on it till I knew it had come down and watched it disappear back into the reserve. I don't need to tell you that now doors will be kept closed at all times of the day and my 2 cats will become indoor cats for a while - whether they like it or not!!
On a craft related note.... I can show you my secret sewing projects now... the first was a present for a friend who I have known for 40 years! and who's "special" birthday we celebrated yesterday.....
|Pattern by Rosalie Quinlan - "Friends Needle Case"|
and another fabric basket like the ones I made earlier in the year.... a gift for another friend....
Alas not a lot of other "crafting" has been happening but will get back to you as soon as I have something of interest to show you....but hopefully not the snake again!
