Baby News!

So excited to announce the arrival of our newest grandson ... 2nd child for DD and SIL.

Flynn Robert
7lb 8oz  (3140g)
November  07, 2019

All are well and big brother P is loving his little brother ... at least 99% of the time.

All sewing has been put on hold while I visited with them for a couple of weeks. Now I'm home it's on with the drought.  Back in the saddle and feeding livestock daily. Lucky to receive 35mm of rain a fortnight ago which put some water back in the fast drying dams, before that we were also carting water daily.

I did actually manage a quick sew when Flynn arrived ... a new pair of boots for a little cowboy.

Thank you dear friends for your support ... blogland is my escape where the bobbin never runs out and points always meet.

Thank you Cheryll for hosting this monthly evening, bringing friends together to foster creativity and inspiration.

My fabric farm has welcomed 6 fury and feathery friends ... ready for the machine applique.

Off to pick up Grandson J soon for a sleepover so the sewing has been packed away for now.

OPAM, FNWF and Farming

Start of a new month and I forgot to share my last finished project for October.

A toaster cover for a large 4 slice toaster for a very patient friend ... I won't mention how long ago I had promised her ... lucky the toaster is still going.

Driving around the paddocks taking feed for the cows, it dawned on me that today is not only a Friday but the first Friday of the month. So tonight I'll be working on a different farm ... one I am in full control of ... a new Little Maccas Farm for a new little bundle that is arriving very very soon.

As for our real life farm, things are going from bad to worse with no feed and dams only having a few weeks of water left.  Anyway, I'm not going to dwell on what I can't control, it's too depressing. Back to my sewing machine I go. I'm going to enjoy my Friday Night With Friends.
