updates and invasions...........

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my garden.............I must say I have lots of bouganvilleas and they give such value in my hot dry climate.............outside is looking good .............inside I am battling a mouse plague...............I had a small invasion a week to 10 days ago but since Sunday afternoon I have caught 25 .......yep you read that right............they have moved on in..........the site of us chasing one around the kitchen with the brooms the other night would have made funniest home videos I am sure............today we pulled out the big guns so hopefully that will be the end of that...........I am not scared of them but they are such a filthy little animal..............enough of that on to the good stuff...............

A few people asked what range these fabrics were from............ Woodland Bloom by Lila Tueller for MODA (right) floral says pattern no 16010 and the (left)spot says Pattern no 16012

Anni Downs - Hatched and Patched's new book "The world as it should be" (I showed the kits here) is now available on her website..............click here and scroll down.........retails $21.80AUD.........also kits should be available any day or so .........email and annoy Pete (Anni's dh) if you can't find them on the website............

edit: no need to hassle Pete the kits are now up on the same spot as the book.............

.........take care til next time.............
.......Chookyblue.......

... if you want to see where fairies live head over here..........I believe in fairies..........do you?

  4. You too. Not in our house but at the house we rented for the weekend. We had one pesky one which at one stage I was chasing around trying to swat with the mop much to everyone else's amusement. They are disgusting little things.
