Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

24-Q

To me, by far the most challenging letter… specificly if one chooses to keep it to one theme throughout the whole round, like I do. Like I did for many rounds now including round 24. After this week we have 9 letters left before a new round starts… The 25th, how wonderful is that if one thinks of how far we have become and what we all already have shared with one and another? WOW!

Well for this round I show / introduce to you the Quokka. They are the smallest kinds of kangaroo on our planet and it is said that they are the happiest animals because they seem to love being photographes with people who make selfies with them. If that is true or not is for debat, I have nothing to proove it ofcourse. They are aprox. 40 cm in height and weigh around 1,5 kg. The tail is between 25 and 35 cms long.

 

Thank you for your entries so far… and I hope I may still be able to welcome you throughout this round and in the new one wich will start on july 9th! If you would like to become a teammember on ABC, please let me know! If you do have questions, remarks, ideas or anything else you want to tell us at ABC, please let us know too!

 

 

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!

23-Q by Beverly

Another week and another letter. The letter this week is Q – a letter that can be a challenge.

I chose quill – which most know as the sharp barbed hair on a porcupine or a hedgehog. It is a defense mechanism that is often a painful reminder to dogs especially, who get too close and curious, to a porcupine.

Many years ago, I took a quill basketry course – to create a small  cedar basket, using dyed quills to decorate it with. I chose the trillium for the lid, which is Ontario’s official flower.

It was a definite challenge to create the basket and took a week of work to make it. But using the quills was fun and not as difficult as I thought it would be. I was proud of the result.

Quill can also mean a writing instrument. Originally a feather’s tip was sharpened and dipped in ink. Now, a pen may be inserted in the hollow shaft of the feather. We used one at our wedding.
