Party Time ...

To celebrate the Chookshed's 3rd Birthday ... Chooky is throwing a party!  I sent my virtual acceptance and have been snapping up some sewing time here and there over the weekend. Not an easy task when asked; "can you just come over to the cattle yards and give us a bit of a hand". Perhaps if I put a movie on shortly I can finish organising these scraps for Natures Journey ...

and stitch the last leaves, 2 pears, 3 berries and bird's tail and wing on this Merry Christmas Garden block.
From it's bare beginnings ...

to currently ...

There was also some baking of a chocolate mud cake but there's not enough of it left to photograph with Hubby and DD about.

Thanks for the invite Chooky ... it's been a very enjoyable weekend.

I'm In Shock!

Are you?  I've never gone sooo long without something to share and am shocked that it's been a whole month! But stitching away a little each night I managed to finish the May blocks for "Natures Journey".

(On looking back I noticed I hadn't even shared my completed April blocks)

Then out came the knitting needles and a ball of wool ... a few rows each night and ... a dishcloth.

First one to put away in the 'gift box' ready for Christmas.  Now with a few more days before June, I'm going to make a start on the June blocks for NJ ... looking ahead there is going to be a lot of work to keep up!
