  7. A girl needs to keep her ears warm... And I'm sure you make a dam good sort...under all those clothes ...
    Warm and sunny here but still windy... Off to a 1yr party tomorrow. So I hope it stays nice.
    Good luck with your "girls". :)

  8. Love to see the girls are happier now, where do you find the time to sew and blog after all that farm work? Hope it warms up soon, we even had snow here in Melbourne this week, now that's cold.

  11. I hate cold ears, so I always have something to cover them in cool weather, too.

    Had to chuckle over your thoughts of adding a flower to the patch job. Reminds me of my mom patching my dad's coveralls (since she knew they would get stained anyways, she used whatever bits of colourful thread she had on had and tried out fancy embroidery stitches on the patches). I'm sure Dad promptly made sure he wiped some grease or oil into those threads so they wouldn't stand out. ;o)

    Stay warm!

  13. Gosh it does look cold there...especially out on a bike..seeing the sun and blue sky can be deceptive.
