play days........

I really am lost with the days - with the quick trip away on odd travelling days for me and not being at work and no school........
After kidnapping Jenny we got to have lots of sewing time together in the chookshed.........
I started cutting into fabrics for my new book and ruler  - ive been bursting to have a go
i'll show you more next post..............
I just started pulling out fabrics from a box of fat 1/4's i've had for ages years..........just fat 1/4's I have brought along the way........
 the boys brought the rams into the small paddock behind the house to trim it down..........they are doing a great job...........this is a few of them thru the window...........
Jenny started playing with my Lil Twister..........she's making a table runner..........the blues and greens look nicer then in this pic..........
cutting out.............
 putting it back together...........
 I started my July SAL project..........
 Fairy Girl finished her scrap/selvedge bag..........she just kept joining bits and pieces.......
Jenny got her Sal bag finished..........a little bigger then the pattern......... 
Once Fairy Girl finished her bag she was allowed to start something else..........
Some charm squares Kerry sent her awhile ago........she almost has the rows together.....she's going pretty well with this one.............and on the right she is starting a jelly roll race with a jelly roll Jean gave her.......... she joined all the lengths and then had to reverse sew a lot of them.............she needs more practise and now knows why you have to sew on the pencil line very well........
All in all things are going pretty well............loving the school holidays.................
.........take care til next time.....Chookyblue.........
