bits and pieces......

a cold weekend is forecast after some rain tomorrow so I might just escape to the Chookshed and sew some more............it's been so nice to have extra time out there.............mind you sometimes I just go and sit out there and have a cuppa........it's a nice bright space and I just enjoy being out there..............

  6. You Chooky the nicest thing I can read on your blog these days is that you are forecast rain. So wonderful.

  7. I'd love to see a picture of your lanters. I've seek Anne Ida's in person (well, the pieces and the first lantern anyway), and they are so pretty.

  8. Always nice to spend some time in the sewing room - or in your case the Chookshed....I am a big fan of winter - so far it's been very mild here - looking for some more rain soon!
