Betcherrygahs – Good Parrots
We’ve seen flocks of budgerigars as we passed through the Kimberley area of WA – all greens and yellows but I was short of those colours…
One Dreaming says the Great Spirit put the souls of two children lost in a bush fire into two parrots to ease their mother’s heartache. That’s why to this day budgies sound like children chattering.

Forget me not – I don’t think I’ll be posting much in the way of inked or painted art while were travelling around Australia. Meanwhile I’ll be continuing to draw designs and execute them with floss / thread – mostly while a passenger.
The Jade Tree represents friendship, luck and money and the delicate looking flowers are very pretty – an inspiration for my latest embroidery design.
