I took a break from baby quilts and visited a nearby Agricultural show yesterday.
They have a craft section so I snapped a few shots for you as inspiration.
I was especially impressed with the next one, but it would require far too much precise thinking for me!
As you can see, it won first prize.
I added to my animal picture collection with this shot from the animal nursery.-Gotta love a pig that whispers sweet nothings in you ear!
My sister's family came along as well, how cute is her Daisy!!
On the way home we got a little sidetracked and ended up at quilt shop, they had just shut but their window displays looked nice, so you can have some more inspiration>
From the stitchery quilt you can tell even Australians are mixed up over what season Christmas should be in!
I also manage to track my brother and his family down so met baby Jake. Apparently he is very good and sleeps all the time! A perfect late baby.
As they are horse crazy as well as being dairy farmers the blanket went down well.
Apparently I need to answer a burning question.....
How many chook do I own? Well, there seem to be between 50 and 60 hens running around this afternoon, also about 20 roosters (all far too handsome go in the pot!) Then there are about 70 chickens aged betwen new and 7 weeks, about 30 chook eggs are under clucks (that I know about!), as well as about 30 duck eggs are under clucks. There are about 14 ducks and 15 young ducklings.....and one turkey hen-who is sitting on Indian runner duck eggs!
And yes, I sell the eggs in town, also a lot of young poultry and I sell point of lay chooks later on.
Off to wash the floor and hang the school uniform washing that I forgot all about yesterday!! Have a great day, Tracey
