sewing kit, drought feeding, Fairy Girl Sewing.........

Last weekend was heaven..................Sat especially was max 27..............hasn't been that cool for 3 months............and the night was great too......coolest for 2 months.............no fans, no air cons, just a gorgeous day (well if it can't rain) So I got some time in the chook shed sewing...........
I made up this sewing kit for the people affected by the Dunalley Fires
We had some essentials to include in the parcel (top left pic) plus a stitchery not included in pic and then add something extra.........
I included some cards and other sewing bits and bobs...........
While some parts of the country have had rain in crazy amounts causing much devastation we haven't had any........well 2.5 inchs in 6 months won't do anything....
..especially during the heat we have had.............except lots of drought feeding.............
hungry cows following the hay bale.............until they discovered the one already out for them and then they took off..............
For long time blog readers that's Curly Pops (the red one) in the middle............
then it was onto the sheep..........
big clear skys with no rain...........
it's pretty depressing out in the paddocks..........
another mob running into the feed cart..............
just waiting for the stragglers to come in..............
happy now with oats to eat.........
I caught my leg on the feed bin..............you should see the bruise - actually I won't scare you with it............
Fairy Girl got some sewing done last weekend too..........she made these for her friends.........
they can put little bits in them............hair bands etc............
love the owl fabrics I got at spotlight........
.....wished I had more it's so cute but I only have a fat quarter............
have a great weekend................I have a special visitor coming............more on that later..........hoping we will get some sewing done...........but right now I have no power for 2 hours so I better get off here as it's going off in about 10 mins..............
But thankfully it won't be off all day cause it's supposed to be 36 here today............
Have a great weekend.............
Catch you later..............

Great post Chooky....cool kit! Jo has done a wonderful job organizing this...Thanks for showing us pics of your farm...I like those sheep...what sort are they? I bet Fairy Girl loves those catchers....I reckon I could do with one in every room...Have fun with your special friend! It's hot here too xo

Great job with your sewing kit Chooky. Hope the weather doesn't hat up too much. Sharyn:)

I hope you get an early break in the season. We have been so lucky here, had nice weather (eg 28) more then extreme heat, so hopefully you will have some ongoing respite soon. We are following up a whiff of some free transport for a quilt or two, will keep you posted.

Hi Chooky, been thinking of you all so much. Your place resembles ours... lots of dust and hungry for green grass stock..
Also been wondering if we can make some small 'spoil the fire victim' articles like the sewing kits. I don't have lots of time anymore to make quilts, but small articles may be achievable. Like you, I can hardly bear to think of losing everything, especially precious sewing things. You are doing a wonderful thing.. Stay cool and happy sewing. xx

Wendy said...

Wonderful kit to help out with! Fairy girls little catchers are great as well. Hope you guys get water(rain) soon. Poor sheep.

Curly Pops is all grown up. Not a lot of colour in the landscape out their Chook, sure is dry.
Do you want some more of that owl fabric? I plan to go to Spotlight in the coming week to look for some cardstock so if they have some FQs of the owls do you want some? No trouble.

Marilyn said...

That is a great sewing kit and goodies. Sure is dry, very much like my D's photos of their farm. We try hard to send you the rain but it just wont happen. Lovely bits and bobs holders, and the owls are cute..
