Zoom and Scrub Stitchin' Retreat prep.....

Sorry i've been a bit quiet.........lots going on.........
I have got some quilts back from quilting........finished a quilt completely - don't die of shock.......
Lots of pics need to be taken.......sorted and posts written.........
I have been trying to find time to do another zoom but things have been busy............
SO today I rashly emailed out to everyone an hour or so before I could pop in for a couple of hours............thanks to those who popped in
Clare NZ, Janet & Gail USA, Chris Canada, Sylvia Germany and Diane, Annette, Jenny, Jeanette, Susan, Maureen and myself from Oz......I hope I have not missed anyone.....links all on the sidebar....
Being so rushed I just grabbed the sewing bag and found some Lucy blocks so that is what I worked on........Finished above and started on below..........
the next chance to zoom won't be until the end of the month........maybe the Sunday.......I couldn't wait that long to catch up hence the quick catch up today.........
SCRUB STITCHIN'
retreat plans are well underway for another wonderful few days of sewing........
Early April we will stitch up a storm again......
got a few newbies to add to the mix so should be a wonderul time once again..........
I'm so desperate for a sewing weekend with friends........come and join us........
Pic from 2019 as our last retreat as 2020 was cancelled due to covid.............

Currently we have a mice plague.........another great equaliser like covid everyone has them in the district..........some more then others..........
some of the damage the mice are doing to the bales..........its a battle I hope to win but I am not sure.....it's taking it's toll mentally, physically and financially....some farms have lost stacks of hay.......
dust storms would be better to deal with then mice..........
BUT I do love the light in this photo that I snapped early one morning..........
Stay safe..........
Keep the love of blogging alive............
Catch you later....

  3. Hopefully next time I can join in with zoom. Oh man - retreat is coming up and it seems I won't be there this time...fingers crossed for next year...sigh!!! I can't believe the damage the mice are doing - that is heart breaking seeing your feed disappear like that. Well done on getting a quilt finished!!!

  11. It was really great to sit & sew with everyone yesterday. I needed that break & the stitching company. Hope something happens soon to rid you of the mice problem. So much damage. Hugs, xx

  12. Oh my goodness Chooky. I can just imagine the damage the mice infestations are causing. I have never seen them eat so much hay. That certainly means there are tons of them. It is nice to hear you find the positive though.
    So, am I right to presume this sewing retreat will be virutal?

  15. Sorry I couldn't join in the zoom, hopefully next time, am getting excited for Scrub Stitching, hopefully the borders stay open. So sad to see the mice plague, it would be wonderful for you to have a problem free season, no mice droughts no dust storms! Love your Lucy blocks.
