A Family Activity & A Journal Quilt Challenge

I We went to Morialta Conservation Park for a picnic lunch today. When Bradley and I deem something to be a family activity that means that everyone has to come! It was a glorious afternoon. I sat and drew in my sketchbook. I am concentrating on texture in my sketchbook at the moment. Miss 11 and I went for a stroll together and came across this. I've heard of making mountains out of molehills, but look at this mountain of an anthill! And they were just tiny little ants too. I am participating in Minou's Minute's journal quilt challenge. The theme is nature and the challenge runs from September to November. Rush over to her website to join in (And see what a journal quilt is. I didn't know till I saw her post!) So, maybe the anthill will feature in a journal quilt here in the future!

It must have been a really lovely day for you Kris, to be spending it with all your family. We saw these anthills when we visited Australia, I hadn't ever seen one before. x
