Been a bit quiet here lately hasn’t it…
Life has returned to ‘normal’… (whatever that is) and Spring is in full bloom in the gardens
FLM has been busy in the yard, he re-jigged the chookhouse so that the girls have more shade down beside the greenhouse. I love them, our little Milli and Vanilli, they are so gorgeous. Don’t mind a cuddle and give us one egg each every day without fail
Today is definitely more Summery than Spring’y with the warm winds blowing from the West. I love this time of year… shorts, t/shirts, sandals, salads, iced drinks, BBQs, lots of outside stuff. Gotta love that!
And is there anything nicer than freshly washed linen hanging on the line in the breeze? I don’t think so either :)
Ninja cat likes ‘fresh linen’ day… he helps to make the bed
He’s also one of those rare puss cats that likes to walk on a lead attached to a harness. Makes for a lovely picnic at one of our local parks
I’ve only ever seen two cats do this… Ninja cat (Theo) and Moo’s cat, Willis. Both gorgeous and super intelligent cats
Ratty is getting used to having the toddler around. A few spits, the odd hiss and he saunters off to his own place for time out
Every afternoon we find them together on our bed for their afternoon siesta
Oh for the life of a cat!!
On the creating front…
I designed and made this pretty little quilt for Waterboy and country Princess (a gift for a friend of theirs). How mushy is it! Lots of prettiness and a couple of girly ruffles to boot… reminds me of a yum dessert :)
I’ve been busy trying to catch up on some quilting and doing a bit of stitching at night by the telly. Nothing new though, just a few little hexie coasters and hot pot mats. Photos to come a bit later
AND another of my projects will be featured in Australian Homespun in mid 2013 so stay tuned for details in the next little while. I’m a bit chuffed to be able to share this one… it’s pretty special!
That will be a big event…! Apart from the obvious fun of a 4 day girly/stitching/shopping/eating bonanza, it will be the first time we’ve met in person (apart from the lovely Joy) and I can’t wait!
Flights are booked, deposits paid and now all I have to do is squirrel away some pennies. Icing on the cake will be catching up with the lovely Sarah from Quilt Fabric Delights. Is it too soon to count sleeps? Probably….
Our next big adventure will be to the beach and the camping/caravan expo in a couple of weeks time. Got some more research to do before the fun of 2013 :)
