Last week was our wedding anniversary, it's hard to believe I have been married for 21 years!  Time does fly!  Above is the gorgeous card my mum made us - she is very clever!  As for me I was spoilt, Mike got us tickets to fly down south to Nelsen for the weekend at the beginning of December!  I am excited for two reasons, I love Nelson and the other is we will be staying with my bestie Nadine!  It will be so great to catch up and ooh I almost forgot the shops!   But my boys gave me the biggest surprise, they brought me 3 calves, I call them panda calves because that's what they look like........................they are so mad CUTE!!!!

So some help on name suggestions ladies would be greatly appreciated???????  Still busy on the farm but will be weaning some calves this week, so slowly things will slow down!  On the craft front I am working on SSCS but almost finished so then I can start on other projects, as I have had some new patterns turn up and am so excited and want to start on those!!!  So I will finish with some docking photo's, we have now finished the docking which was pretty full on, we got a milker but still had to come home and feed calves, which doesn't sound that bad, but the trip home was 3 hours, so feeding was a little late and boy did the calves let me know that I was late!! ( lucky they are quick to forgive!)

Have a great week, Michelle.

Almost missed it !

Yep on Monday for some reason Claire was on my mind while feeding my calves, so when I got home I gave her a quick ring, I thought we were meeting on Tuesday for our KHS Halloween/Thanksgiving, but no we were meeting on Monday!  So it was a mad dash to get ready and luckily for me I had done my project on Sunday!!  But when arriving at Claires and keep in mind I was late, no-one but Claire was there!  This got Claire thinking maybe I had the right day and she was a day early????  But we were put at ease as slowly one by one everyone else turned up.  Claire had done her sun porch up for Halloween and it was very cool !

Claire also put the most delish lunch on, roast chicken, cinnamon and spice roasted potatoes, kumara and a broccoli,bacon salad and then to top it off pumpkin pie and yoghurt!!! (NO TEA NEEDED!!)  and the table looked gorgeous as usual,

Claire also made each of us a yummy cinnamon sugar scrub! thanks Claire!  Below is Claire's project for the month, this very cute Halloween bunting-not sure where she found the time??
Nicky didn't have time and Michelle some how found time to make a pillow front, when finished is going to look fab on her new church pew which we will see next month.
And below is my witchy shoes and tin.
As you can see from the photo below we love going to Claire's and relaxing, I am so pleased I did ring Claire on Monday morning because I would have been so disappointed if I had of missed it!  I so look for ward to these meetings.
Hope to show some stitching soon, but I am working on some secret sewing for Chooky's SSCS.
