In my last post I mentioned that I was about to embark on an extraordinary adventure and it really did exceed any expectation or imagination I had when I wrote that. I travelled to Sri Lanka with Mr RH and two of our sons to go to a wedding that included a church service, a buddhist ceremony (where traditional dancers/acrobats fetched first the groom then the bride) and a reception with the biggest chandeliers I’ve ever seen, a banquet and dancing into the early hours. The other guests wore saris in all colours and gold bangles and it really was exactly like falling into a scene from a fairytale…
Now I am back in the Makery. It is still disguised as a spare bedroom and its contents are still dispersed around the house although it seems like a very long time since all the Christmas guests went home. But how can this not turn into a good making year with such a fortuitous beginning!
Before I set it all back to rights, I am working on my quilt for the next Endeavourers reveal day (February 1st) but that is currently a secret so, instead, I thought I’d share some photos from our visit to Wilpattu National Park. (The following photos are shown in slideshows and, unfortunately, they will not display properly if you are viewing this post in an email).

I wish you a belated Happy New Year! And I’m looking forward to seeing what 2020 brings for all of us :)

OMGosh!! You got such wonderful pictures! Of course the birds captivated me. They have Hawks there!! I was surprised that that last monkey has such short hair on his tail. I’m going back to look through your pictures again and then again when I show them to Terry. Thanks for sharing what you saw.
I was amazed how long the monkey’s tail was!
Wow, looks like you had a wonderful trip!
Loved all the photos! Thanks for showing us!
OH my word, that looks AMAZING, what an experience, so glad you got to have it, it looks wonderful xx
What fantastic photos and what an adventure! I can somehow see the bird at the top of your post finding its way into one of your quilts! :-)
Oh my, so much beauty to be viewed in all the photos, Janine. The variety of the exotic looking birds is amazing. How exciting to witness the beauty of this land and to celebrate a fascinating Sri Lankan wedding. Indeed, it must have felt you were smack in the middle of a fairy tale.
