All the signs of Spring are here....
my chooks just keep walking out of any bits of undergrowth with babies.
These are the latest...13!
I found this nest today..fortunately noticed the hen cluck clucking around the yard and followed her back to this icanthus..right outside my bedroom window!
The bees are going just crazy! Never seen anything like it, they really must like pigface, they had no interest in me putting the camera virtually right up against them, they were only intent upon their work!
The only thing slightly unspringlike, well not in the last 10 springs anyway...is that it just keeps raining! We have had close to an inch again in the last few days, with much more due...and all this while NSW and Sydney areas are enveloped in dust storms..it's a strange country!
This canola is slightly struggling under the weight of water
Gotta go...gotta sew!
Have a great day, Tracey

The weather hasn't helped, although much of Australia is unseasonably hot, we are having the most rain for about 10 years, a little too much for cropping, but we really shouldn't complain, at least we can shower!
Dh needed me last weekend, (even more than usual!!)was putting out urea fertilizer on his canola and this happened...
spreader was nicely bogged
I had to help pull him out, well, I drove the green and he the red, then I had to take the red one back across to the gate...luckily you can't hit much in a paddock-that thing is big!! As we drove out of the paddock we said, this crop might be right if we get no more rain this weekend...we then got another 2 1/2 inches!!
Lots of little sewing jobs, these bags for presents...
And then last night we had our stack and whack night at Quilters, got some very different quilts...a few girls were away but the ones who were there produced these-
Kath's blocks...had a real sun, sand and surf feel.
Robyn's quilt top
(heather Bailey's fresh cut)
Christine's Kaffe fasset
and my Heather bailey, with partial sashings...we realised it was 12.30 am!!! Time stands still when you are sewing!
I may drop you a line from my mountain adventure. I have set up an invitation only snow camp blog for all the parents and am taking my laptop and camera to keep them in the loop, I may show you a good photo of me on my b--- as that is where I imagine I will be as I learn to ski!!Any good tips from my overseas friends?
Have a good week...hopefully I will! Tracey
