Every now and again we get to see some
amazing creatures wandering around our yard.
At the moment we are very lucky to have
the biggest echidna I have ever seen
(I'd say he'd be at least 35cm long - almost 14")
He forages around in our front garden in the evenings.
We know he's arrived when we hear
a bit of shuffling and snuffling.
He moves slowly around
and doesn't seem to mind us
coming out to have a look
at him from a distance.
It is such a thrill and a joy to see
a healthy and content native animal
wandering freely around and knowing
we are able to provide a bit of space
and hopefully safe haven for
him to thrive and survive.

A little while ago,
when I was doing a lot of
altered book covers, I played around a bit with
metal, nails and text in metal.
Now, I know metal and paper aren't really good
partners for a long term relationship
as far as archival qualities go,
short term friendships can be
I had a hankering to put a metal cover
with a bit of text onto my
concertina child and
this is the initial outcome.
