Hey.....

Wow we've sure had some winter days which has been great......i do love to have all the seasons.....a few frosts.....the fires burning keeping us nice and warm......
its very dry and no rain on the horizon.......we've had a bit of a break from feeding but we'll be feeding again very soon..........or should be now......

There's been some great sunsets of late............
guinea fowl feather.......so pretty..............
I was supposed to be in Sydney with Anni to help her again.....it was such fun last year.........but I just couldn't get there........She was sending me some pics of her and some of my friends who she ran into.......Next year i'm going.........

Enjoyed a quilt talk and show and tell with Wendy Wild..........not the best pic but this is one of her more traditional ones........shes gone more modern now days..........nice to see the journey thru.......

Chookshed 7th Birthday Party Roundup....

What a great weekend..........this post was supposed to come sooner but it's been a big week............lot of travel for work..........
Saturday evening in our short walk around the house yard just on golden hour........stunning sunset..........
Me, Suze, Kate and Miss Jules.........you missed a good weekend Lea.....(she got stuck babysitting a sick grandy)
This is the one I started binding and funny I started making this one at the 5th Birthday...........see it in progress here...........and my blocks are the 15 random blocks on the wall in the pic below..........
The design board was busy with layouts of quilts.........I made great progress on the fabrics.......random blocks.....brain was not in right gear but I have enjoyed just chopping and creating whatever block I wanted.........just squares and rectangles so far.........probably stick with that..........
Suze's quilt on the table she made last year but now it is quilted and she worked on the binding...........the liberty hexies are hers too............
Miss Jules was working on the blue linen 4 patch quilt..........a design from Anni Downs............
Kate worked on the wall hanging and Annis quilt Dancing Chickens and Flying Pigs BOM..........all her remainder blocks are prepared ready to stitch............
Here's the pile of fabrics that I still have so more blocks to come for sure..........I've made a few more blocks since this pic and got a couple more in progress...........trying to work with free mind is a challenge...........
thanks girls for helping me celebrate the 7th Birthday for the Chookshed.............
I sure hope you all had fun stitching at home virtually..........thanks for the lovely messages......if you have done a post and I have not seen it let me know........I had hoped to catch up by now but like I said big week.......enjoy the long weekend everyone.........
Catch you later.....

Fabric pull

I went to a friend's and she said take some fabric... Like I needed more anyway.....
Anyway I sorted the fabrics up into colourways.......
The big print I think will become a backing....... Maybe random blocks?
How is everyone going??
Catch you later......
