Happy.... not so happy..... now happy....

 Happy....

A few years ago Corinne went to Japan for a Christmas holiday and bought me a few 1/2 metre  pieces of gorgeous fabric.....

I found just the right project I wanted to make with one piece....

a laptop bag....

So the project began.....

Not so happy.....

It has taken me quite a few weeks to get it done....

there were lots of problems and nasty words spoken, not the greatest finish, a bit untidy inside but it is now complete.....

Happy now.....





I have been sewing but not able to show photos yet.....

secret squirrel stuff.....

I have caught up with the Black work SAL project that I'm doing with a couple of lovely ladies....

Only 4 weeks to go......


Our gorgeous King Parrot who just flies in and demands feeding.....
He is just so friendly...
Heather was absolutely delighted to have him land on her hand....


There is a wonderful new cafe in our local shopping centre ....

"Crunchy's Dessert Bar"

So we had to go and check them out....
quite a few times as you can see.....
Heather and I did the first visit.....


Second visit was with Liz and Heather for Liz's birthday.....


Then of course I had to take Mel....


All in one week.....
no wonder my shorts are a little tight....

Well I think that is about all my news for now.....
ending on a Happy note....

Happy Stitching.....

Busy girls....

Well this is a bit different than sewing but a great way to get exercise I suppose....

I've been helping Heather with her fences.....

It's not perfect but we are very pleased with our efforts....

Heather was given a lot of used copper logs so working with these wasn't easy really but we did it....





We even did a mitred corner....
Woohooo....
have to add a little bit of sewing to this job....
Once again not perfect but good enough for us girls....
She will be adding electric tape to these fences just in case....
fortunately her horses are very respectful around the tape....



Still a bit more to do.... strapping and nailing .....

Today was separating paddocks with electric fencing....





All for her babies.....

JIGSAW  18.1 hands.....
Clydesdale cross Thoroughbred 





FLYNN  2 year old...

SAM  also a 2 year old.....
he is arriving soon....

OMG I was soooo tired after 4 days work.....
think I might be getting tooooo old for this lark.....
We had fun with it though, lots of giggling and chatting.....
Next time Heather asks me to come for coffee I might think twice.....
All jokes aside I did enjoy helping her......
 No sewing to show though...
