dragging the chain.........

I am little behind with everything..........still catching up with bloglines from before I was away.........

A friend gave me this wonderful book.........I am so lucky I have looked at it several times and not got it so thanks heaps CM..................

This is what you see when you lie on the grass..................do you ever do that???? I haven't done it for awhile but love watching the clouds pass over............

Now I know I already said I am behind but over easter I had visitors and my friend brought some plastic sleeves with her that you put onto hard boiled eggs and lower into hot water for 3 seconds and it shrinks onto the egss.............so cool here they are on the left............

We all got plenty of chocolate and in Australia we also have chocolate Bilby's (an Australian native animal) so that is him next to the easter bunny............

I got some canvas boards for the kids to do art on and here is what the girls were working on.........."Book Worm" didn't get a picture taken but he painted Ayers Rock.............

I also did some sewing on the weekend and made a skirt and bag for my little girl visitor for her birthday.............she loved it...........

Take care til next time..........hopefully I will have some sewing to show..........

  4. As a 17 year old I can vivdly remember laying on the couches next to the window in our school 6th form centre during a free lesson just watching the snow flakes fall showing up dark against the pale grey heavy sky - I could do that for hours

  5. Sounds like you had a great Easter.Where did your friend get the plastic sleeves from for the eggs? It is nice to lay out on the grass and look up I also do it at nighttime and look at the stars. Jo

  6. I know how you feel about catching up I keep adding to bloglines when I find a new blog and then you miss a few days and wow. I am truly impressed with those scones mine always turn out like rocks I have given up on making them. I grew up in the country so the comment about the agent telling everybody around town about your first batch of scones made me laugh. Have a good week.
