While I'm in patriotic mood, here is a doiley UFO featuring a lyrebird. I have some other doilies with lyrebirds on them, but haven't checked my stash to see if this is the same design. Needs ironing!

Love the Lyrebird Gina,

Thanks ladies! Iris, the lyrebird is one of Australia's unique native birds, usually living in dense bushland. It is an extraordinary mimic, and has been known to mimic camera winding mechanisms, chainsaws and other human-made noises, as well as other birds nearby. I should go back to this post and put a link on the word, so you (and others) can read more about it.

How fun. I really like the idea of regional goodness. I don't even know what a Lyre Bird is!

Hi Barb, just to let you know that I have inserted a link on one of my posts about this doiley, that you can click on to find out more about our lyrebirds.
