It's been a while.

Well it has been a while, I decided I needed to concentrate on using my time more productively which meant not spending so many hours on the computer which is why I haven't blogged for while and yes I have got some sewing done, I am madly stitching the Gardeners Journal with the other girls in the Stitch-A-Long and I am very happy with my progress; I have started machine quilting a flannel quilt for my youngest daughter; I just have to stitch a binding around a little Christmas wall-hanging... no pictures yet.
 As well as my sewing I have pulled lots of weeds, cleaned up some of my garden and planted some new seedlings of pansy's and lupins and a few herbs to replace the ones that were overgrown and totally out of control..... that's a very satisfying job done.
The chook house has been finished and we have three brown chickens....
that's Harriet on the left and Matilda on the right......
 this is a close-up of Iris, she is a week or two older than the other girls and we have had two eggs so far....
I will try and post some stitching pics soon.....

Hi Sheryl, Can't wait to see your progress on A Gardener's Journal, not sure if you got my e-mail reply a while back or not, but it was lovely to hear from you. How exciting, you have chooks, I used to, but the stoats kept killing them, so when I get a new rodent proof chook house I can get some more......one day! Nicky
