Little Macca Had A ?

Sheep, Bird, Goat and Horse ... little bird needs a wing.


A busy week with travel, farm shopping and catching up with a lovely friend Fiona.  We both look forward to our annual stroll, shop, chat around Farmfest and of course a coffee. Thank you for braving that horrid traffic and making it a great day ... I heard that the next day's traffic was just as full on.  It never hurts to dream either and wouldn't this gorgeous She Shed make a wonderful addition.


Then it was off again to a campdraft/rodeo/show day out with this little birthday boy ... Happy 2nd Birthday gorgeous grandson.


Onward with the next full week of visitors, mustering and off-farm work.

Happy Sunday stitching     >^..^<

Chookshed Party Wrap-up

Put dinner on early to cook itself so I had more time to play with these fun guys at the party.


Still need to source a few bits and pieces of fabrics to suit but I'm happy with how these four have come together so far ... had a lovely time at the party with Chooky and friends. Thank you     >^..^<

Party in the Chookshed

This cyclonic wind is playing havoc with my internet. Good thing I get to stay indoors and party with Chooky and friends to celebrate the Chookshed's 4th birthday.

Friday I was lucky enough to go on a quick shopping trip and made some fabric purchases. Saturday we had a surprise visit from our son and grandson ... pikelets for morning tea. After lunch was fabric playtime with the new purchases and digging through my stash.


Every quilt begins with a first step ... a new "Little ???s Farm" and every farm needs a dog.


Time to start cutting and tracing.  Thank you Chooky for a great party and I hope everyone is having a fun weekend of sewing.

Time Flies

Whether you're having fun or not it would seem ... it would also seem that it's all work and very little play for this little blogger lately. With some knitting at night, I have finished another cloth in the variegated pink "Giggle" ... another for the Christmas gift box.


1 small tick for OPAM, CTTY and 1XmasItem.  The crochet rug is also finished ... just need to weave in all those ends and then add tassels.

One stitch at a time.     >^..^<

OPAM Finish

I do have a small finish to share for April's OPAM ... a knitted jar cover using up some leftover wool.


Still recovering a fortnight later after the yukky throat etc hit ... Dr said "rest" so I've been sitting crocheting :o)

Just a Little Brag Post

Yesterday was our local show and while I spend the day helping out in the office, it's always nice to have a couple of entries in the pavilion ... the more the merrier and we always have an excellent display of flowers, cooking, craft and much more for our little show.

I was lucky enough to catch the judges eye with these two entries.

Needlework Section

Photography Section

I'm afraid there hasn't been a lot of time for anything else much ... I did start another new project, crochet this time (just can't stay focused for long) ... and have been adding a couple of rows each night. It was a kit using 3 strands of no. 8 wool and a 15 mm hook.



The cool change in the weather has been nice but I'm not liking the yukky throat, tickly cough and hot eyes this morning ... I'm off to crochet some more ... the rug is big enough now to keep my knees warm while I work.

Happy Sunday

FNWF Results

Chris Hemsworth kept me company last night while I knitted and stitched with friends for FNWF. Snow White is a lucky lass indeed ;o)

First I was able to finish knitting this so soft cloth in 'Giggle' ... one for the Christmas Gift Box. Love how the variegate has formed a crisscross pattern.


Next onto this Needle Case stitchery which will also be one for the Gift Box.



While Mum was visiting she trialed a pattern from BH&G for a jar cosy.


Thinking some of these would be nice for little gifts and I have plenty of jars.

Thanks Cheryll for hosting another fab Friday ... looking forward to seeing who else was busy last night.

Happy Weekend

Another Week Down and FNWF

Hello April ... do you know it's supposed to be Autumn? Where's the cooler weather!

You'll find me tonight under the fan, watching a little TV,  knitting and perhaps an embroidery stitch or two for a change.  Pop over HERE if you haven't signed up yet for ...



Another busy week with family visiting to help with the muster.  Just love spending time with this little monkey ... who just loves being in the outdoors.



While enjoying some outdoor time with camera in hand I snapped this beauty.



Hoping next week will be a little slower and I will find some time to go blog visiting and just maybe do a little sewing ... who knows?  For now I'm off to reheat leftovers for dinner and settle in for a bit of sewing/knitting With Friends on this Friday Night.
