Flying thru the year!!

Hello again, I can't believe how time has flown!!  It is the 2nd of March already!!!  So much has been happening but sadly not a lot of crafting!  Last night I finished my magazine stand which I brought with a Christmas voucher-thanks Mum and Dad, but didn't like the yellow wood. But with some black chalk paint, a little wax and some tea dyed doily's, it now has a place to call home.  I am so happy with the finish!

 On Saturday I am meeting with the KHS, which will be our first meeting since Christmas!! ( I believe Claire has been crafting up a storm, so will get photos! and Nick has finished a quilt!!!) I am so excited, I have missed the inspiration of the girls! I am in need of that at the moment!!
 Gardens have been filling in most of my time as well as a new part time job of a personal care giver.

Stock work of course!!

Lots of hay, on the dairy farm I milk on.

And shocking weather here in February, made a hell of a mess!
I had fallen tree's and they make such a mess!
And the water, my poor spouting couldn't keep up!!

And now the garden's are starting to look messy again!  So now is clean up time!  I do love my gardens from October to the end of January, but now they are just work!!
Well it was great to quickly catch up, hopefully I more blog more regularly now.
Take care,


  1. Looking good, the magazine holder looks fabulous. We have had heaps of rain here too.

  2. garden is such hard work probably from Oct - Mar keeping up with the watering..........I feel like I am a slave to it.........but it is so nice having nice green lawn when everything is dead out the fence........

  3. Hi Michelle, LoVe your new header, its gorgeous. As is that magazine rack you have made over. I love the black AND of course, the doilies. My garden is messy now too, everything has gone to seed after the long hot summer. Not a pleasant sight & I need to give it some attention. Hope you have a lovely meet-up on Saturday, remember to take photos for us all to drool over :-)
