Days Go By

I've lost track of how many times I have thought to post on my blog, only to be sidetracked by one thing or another, none of it craft stuff.

If it hasn't been BAS or Tax time, it's meeting "requirements" and "red tape" to run a property, then there's the off-farm work to make ends meet.  On the bright side, a full muster means quality time with DS and Grandson J.


It's a big job for a little man and tucker time is a very important part of the day. He is such an awesome little helper.


These babies will soon be reunited with mums.


Muster over and quick trip north (4.5 hour drive) and an overnight catch-up with DD and Grandson P. My parents came along for the trip and were thrilled to visit with this cheeky, happy little man.


I'm afraid there really isn't any sewing/stitching to show. My August Calendar Bear still needs tracing and my August block for A Holly Cottage Christmas is assembled and awaiting some appropriate fabric for the candy canes before I can applique.  I did pick up a crochet rug while mum was here in case I needed a refresher course.

Almost 2 weeks now since we had to say goodbye to one of my fur babies Fleur.  Age and illness dictated that it was the kind although extremely hard thing to do.

R.I.P. sweet girl ....

Flying Friday Nights

Friday nights come flying around so quickly it seems ... a good thing as it's a joy to stitch with virtual friends. Tomorrow night is FNwF @ Cheryll's so do pop over and say hello.

I'm having DS and Grandson J visiting to help with our muster but I hope to manage some stitching.
