Comments..........

After a few emails from other bloggers saying they had commented but it disappeared and they had not heard back from me......then.....another friend said she had some comments in her spam folder I decided to just check my comments in my blog.........

So it turns out I had a pile of comments awaiting moderation (approx 50) sitting there that had not been emailed out to me. So I approved them and they didn't appear in my gmail account..........at this point I was baffled.......
turns out they then went to my spam folder in gmail....
So I marked them as not spam....Sometimes blogger just does what it wants......
Anyway we'll keep watching this space and see what happens when you comment......
UPDATE    
SO I held this post back to see what was going on.......I've just found a pile of comments in the spam folder yesterday and today another bundle.......so I will work on replying to those and it seems random when a comment does or doesn't go to the spam folder..........
I mostly reply to comments.....unless I get way behind.........
Got my quilt cut out and placed on the wall.......
I'll share a peek with you next post.........
Catch you later.......

wonders will never cease

Omg girls i'm sewing without you......
In tidying up the chookshed we delved onto an unknown box for Fairy Girl (yes I know she's too big for that name now but it won't change now) to see what was in it..... I have been looking for mindless sewing..... Look what I found..... 
I'm going to post this and get cutting..... But oh they are so pretty all lined up prefectly like this..... 
Even better like this
Storms around last night..... Wet weather makes me feel like sewing...... 
this photo taken over the dam... Just on my phone not amazing but wow what a show we got last night..... 
More building up this arvo..... 
Harvest is starting in the district so of course we have rain forecast for the next week..... 
ok away to cut and sew..... 
Catch you later..... Chookyblue.....

Oct zoom sewing day.........

Wow girls.....another wonderful marathon zoom sewing day......starting bright and early or as they say early bird catches the worm.......

The conversation was once again easy...........everyone just fits in......we all have the common thread that links us together.......everyone was so busy sewing

I think that the most on at once was 15 or 16 but there was 25 of us altogether and I have linked everyone on the sidebar on the left on my blog so you can all go visit each other...........
The security guard aka Bridget was on duty. Well sometimes she was sleeping on the mat across the door way but if she heard movement she was up and wanting to come in.........so innocent but so guilty all at once.........
I once again worked on my EPP Blue Lanterns.......
slowly sections were being worked on..........
Added the 3 blocks to the left side..........
got this whole section together.....lucky I numbered each block on the back as I had already forgotten what I had done....trying to work out from the pics a few months ago what I had done was a bit challening....anyway....it's ready to join onto the main part now........
And into the night I kept sewing.......chatting was sporadic for me as the day went on with the wind then the cloud coming over my wonderful internet was not happy............I kept freezing and doing weird things on the other end according to the girls so some of my messages were chat text..........Lucky for me I could mostly hear and see everything fine....but i had patches where it was fine.......I relied on others to chatter when it was not good........it's just like sitting around the table chatting with your sewing buddies..........so good........

If you want to join in you just need to leave a comment or email me when I put up the post that we are zooming. I can't give heaps of notice as often it is not until close to the weekend that I can work out that I can fit it into my day....checking other commitments or farm jobs don't pop up in the way.........

And as you like to see whats happening on the farm this is a crop pic from during the week.............
Harvest is coming soon......some have started.........hopefully the rain we are getting today doesn't do any damage..........as the girls who have been on before know it's been pretty chilly in the Chookshed for a zoom gathering but yesterday was our hottest day since last summer........35 deg....so the air con was turned on early to keep me cool..........
today it is barely 1/2 that 17deg and I have my jumper and trousers on again.........

Catch you later............

Gardening.....

OMG girls 3 posts in 3 days........world record........
The weekend has been relaxing and busy at times........no visitors......couldn't go away as we have a heifer down that we are lifting........so it's been quiet....
I have needed some quiet time.....
Yesterday we started some gardening....its been terrible.......lost heaps during the drought that was never going to end.....its broken me......my love of gardening has been severely damaged.......
Finally i felt a little inspired to try and tame the garden......working full time in town now days hasn't helped either and a few times the weeds have gotten away...its amazing what you can fit even even when it's flat out here...but when your gone all day it can't happen....but as I'm trying to bring some control to my life I know I always feel better if the lawns are mown and nice even if the house is a mess.......so it's back to trying to get control.........lots of dead trees and bushes need to be removed.......even just to get that done is a big effort........but cutting back some hedges etc and making them tidier was a good start along with whipper snipping and mowing.........more to whipper snip today and all the dead things to remove still but I feel better already......

For the first time in a long time I caught up in blog reading.......some was skimmed and I didn't comment as much as usual but I got thru it........I just couldn't hit "mark all as read" 
Sunset yesterday.....
beautiful....
Catch you later.....
