At Michelle's













Two Saturdays ago we had our KHS meeting at Michelle's, as you can see from the photo's it was a lovely relaxing day.  There was a wee bit of stitching, a lot of chatting, it was great to just sit and stitch for a while, which I hadn't done in some time!! The first 9 photo's are all Michelle's projects-she has been one busy lady!! (I am green with jealously!!) The other three are just everyone chilling.  Thanks for a great day Michelle, i did come home all inspired.................but lost it when I started milking!!!! Hopefully next week, that inspiration will come back???
Have a great week everyone,
Michelle.

Can't believe how busy things have been!  Time has disappeared so fast!  I think this photo was taken 3 weeks ago, the day before my son flew back to Australia for work.  My Grandad was in hospital so we made a flying trip to visit before he flew out, it was a great day and a great catch up.

Then on that weekend I had the KHS girls come for lunch, can't believe I didn't take any photo's ( mind you I was busy getting lunch ready!!) It was a great catch up, everyone was here and that was extra special as it was my birthday and I got soooo spoilt!  The two photos above are my pressies!  The house was filled with lots of chatter and laughter, it was so much fun.  And we had perfect weather so we sat outside for lunch!  It might have been our only summers day, we have had a lot of rain this summer!!   We also planed our projects out for the next couple of months........................the projects brought to do have a Christmas theme so that makes me happy!
It's hard to believe that our next meeting is actually this weekend, it seems to have been a short turn around for this one...........................but no complaints from me!!! So I will do my best to take photo's this time.
Enjoy what is left of your week,
Michelle.

New Year off to a good start.....................




I had a shaky start to the year, but have found my feet and have my first finish for 2017!  I brought this unit for $40 which was a steal! Then with a little chalk paint and time..................................


This unit is a combo of blue and linen colors and I love how it has turned out, to be honest it has come out better than i thought!
Have a great Tuesday,
Michelle.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a safe New Year.  I have made a promise to myself to make more time for my blog and craft this year!  I hope everyone has time to enjoy family over this holiday season, I intend to make the most with mine.
Take care, Michelle.

KHS and a house challenge



Wow can't believe how long it has been since I last blogged!  Life can certainly get busy at times!  I have been doing a fair bit of crafting but it is been all things for a Christmas market stall I have coming up on the 4th of December.  My challenges for KHS have been put to the side also, but not this one! When we last met at Nicky's she gave us all a house.(pictured above), the challenge...........decorate?
Michelle's had lights and gorgeous fresh flowers.

Nicky's was done as a present for a friend,
a beautiful Christmas theme.
Mine was a simple number with doilies.


And as for Claire with her tongue out!!! She made a gorgeous little quilt for the inside of hers and a Christmas theme also! Her photo also shows her other two finished challenges, her pinecones and doiley hanging.
Our meeting was held at Michelle's and we have a fantastic meal and very quick catch up for me as I left a couple of hours after arriving as I had a 21st to go too!! I so wanted to stay!! It was a great night!!
Michelles pinecone challenge-very cute in pink!!

And this is Nickys, we could do a pinecone or
a flower tree-soooooooo cute!!!

In Michelles craft room-love it!!


just a couple of quick quilts Michelle
whipped up!!


And above is a new Christmas decoration Michelle brought, so cute in a lovely blue!  If you have read to the bottom thanks for hanging around.  It is abit photo heavy I know!  Hope you have a great weekend,
Michelle.

Fur and woolly babies...................

 All babies now have four feet firmly on the ground with my Hereford Milly the last to calve!  The ewes have lambed and only 10 orphans this year which started in the container below nice and warm by the fire and then off to the paddock where the racing began!!  They have been docked and apart from missing their tail all is well.


I love this time of year, it  feels like you are slowing down (and actual fact there is another up hill battle called Christmas!!!)





But for now I am going to enjoy all the babies around me! Not think about Christmas or the fact that my garden looks like a weed festival !
Enjoy your Wednesday,
Michelle
