A very quiet day.
Had to teach Sunday School and cook the extended family Sunday lunch today. (Yummy savoury chops and creamy garlic baked potatoes for those of you who care about the food! It looks after itself beautifully while I am at Church)
DH had to travel about 300 kms to look at a trailer and at the last minute the kids packed up the complete works of Roald Dahl on CD and the portable DVD player and went off with him, so I am family free for at least another 3 and a half hours. The house is screaming for attention, the garden is calling and the sewing room is just playing a haunting, siren like tune. I wonder which I will answer on another perfect, should-be-spring day?
Crazy crumb blocks are well and truly the flavour after Patti's fabulous tutorial. Andrea at Welsh quilter and fiona in England have both posted their progress, I thought I would give you a snippet of mine.
These are all from the shirt scraps that appeared as i made the quilt tops I've been showing you since retreat. I love making them, they only require any precision when you are trimming them to your preferred size at the finish-my kind of blocks! I am thinking a red sashing between them all, they look a little too busy stacked against each other, but i am open to opinions.
I have another lot a size bigger, I can see how Patti has managed to make over 500, they seem to breed!
A few farm pics for you in this beautiful sunshine.
The other side of the "rock feature". Archie trying to access the foxes. I love the old machinery, I wonder if DH would notice some of this come back to my slowly improving garden?
Keeping a close eye on my "accidentally" calving cows at present, I think the bull jumped the electric fence about 9 months ago-men!!!
I haven't been quite happy with this one's mothering, the baby looks hunched up, but I think she is getting the gist.
She should perhaps attend classes with these three, who look like someone to the left has just suggested that there is something wrong with public feeding!
Yeah, that's quite the staredown!
Now, when your kids are this big and still showing up for a feed, then you have something to worry about! (Murray Grey breed)
