November Finish

I have made this quilt for my Niece in Law, a lady I admire very much. She had given me two pieces of the fabric, the birds nests and the bird houses, some time ago and I had been looking for something to coordinate with them. The full range of fat quarters was for sale on the internet so I was able to make a decent sized cosy quilt for her. It is backed with flannel, very warm and put together in a quilt as you go method.

Christmas Bibs.

I have made a couple of bibs for our Grandson's Christmas meals this year. One is a traditional design and the other is cute and colourful. Fun bibs for a happy day.

A Bad Day on the Farm

This evening while we were enjoying dinner with our eldest son and his wife, a fox was dining out on our chooks. Only the roosters are left. We have lost our old chook , Zorina (daughter of Zorro, a black Andulsian Rooster we had for many years) a bantam and two golden crossbreed chickens who were proving to be quite good, if illusive, layers. That's it, I have had enough and we are not getting anymore. Store bought eggs will do now for cooking and I might be lucky to get a few fresh ones from our other daughter in laws hens. It has been a bad day.
