A drive in the country

There was no felting here yesterday.
... . instead, a drive to the Scenic Rim where the rains have
the great dams (which are our water supply) brimming over.
The day began bright and sunny with a blue fluffy sky
soon to change to great sweeping sheets of rain
Wallabies and Kangaroos were everywhere it seemed
grazing on the fresh grasses.
These Whiptail Wallabies were playing 'statues' by the side of the road.
They have the prettiest little faces and at most are about one metre tall.
  The more we looked around us, the more we found.
At a quick glance you could be forgiven for not noticing them. 
It was a peaceful day.

Sounds and looks like it was a lovely day. So funny to see the wallabies -- they are as prolific there as deer in the States. Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

Hi Tammy, We drove to Toowoomba in the Great Dividing Range a few years ago, visiting one of my favourite shops and were travelling on the highway when a deer appeared from no where, bolting across in front of us. One of the kids said 'Now that WASN"T a kangaroo Mum!' The poor thing had apparently escaped from a farm and was quite stressed. That's the closest I've come to free range deer!

I'm glad i happened upon your posting about these lovely wallabies...I saw one at our local zoo (Seattle) the other day from a long, long distance and maybe it was the first time I had seen one. Thanks for the photos.

What is felting?

"FELT" The Essential Macquarie Dictionary meaning:

"A non woven fabric of wool, fur or hair matted together by pressure"

Fibres can be manipulated with the use of soap, water, friction and heat variations ..........or the use of barbed needles to create many interesting, practical and wearable things.
