My friend, Terri Webster Schrandt on her blog Second Wind Leisure hosts Sunday Stills. This week she picked the universal color, tan for her color challenge. She called it a more interesting color, burlwood. So that’s it, all you need to do today is find something burly for Sunday Stills.
I’m including this also as FOTD #15. We’re almost half-way through the months of Australia Flowers. This has been such a fun walk down memory lane for Carol and me, so bear with me for another sixteen days.
A Floral Burlywood Quilt in Toowoomba’s City Hall.
As we began the Toowoomba phase of our trip in 2017, we settled into Carol’s regular lifestyle and I began to experience real life in Australia – through her eyes. Carol happens to quilt, and I love quilts.
She took me downtown to view a wonderful historic quilt she had participated in creating as a part of a quilters’ guild. It was on display in City Hall. (If I’m remembering correctly.) I’m writing all these posts from memory, not notes, like a good teacher would do.
I can only show you the burly, flowery parts today. I worked hard to get the glass reflections out of the photos, but failed at some of them. I’ll keep working and you may see some of these pictures again without green and white UFOs. How many UFOs do you see?
We probably saw hundreds of quilts during my visit. I visited her quilting friends and took pictures of all their quilts. We shopped in fabric stores, where I couldn’t go crazy with anything by my camera. And, of course, Carol’s home was filled with her handiwork. I floated around in quilt heaven.
How cute is this burly snail?
Finally I’ll leave you with some burly water since Terri was so kind to link to my #WQWWC Water prompt. I love when we can link one post to several challenges, don’t you? I hope some of you will join us. The only rule is to include a quote. So here’s mine.

Say hi to this gorgeous Toowoomba turtle.
Now my heart is still for this Sunday. I hope you’ve enjoyed my choice of burly pictures. Thanks again to Terri for hosting. Stay with Sunday Stills as Natalie the Explorer hosts for the next three weeks while Terri gets some much needed time off.
