Bits and bobs...

After missing so much blog time I seem to have a good few photos floating around to share!

Aprons have been the in vogue item, I made this one a month or more ago for a friend of my sister, my girl has made one that it hopefully close to arriving at it's stitchery swap destination...and here is the one she received from her lovely partner, Angel.
Perfect for her, she is the cupcake queen! I will show the one she made when it arrives at its home.
The kittens have been fun, the final one is still here, the long haired black is the one who has stayed to look after us.The others all have homes.A cute family...hogging my couch!
My lovely friend Robyn was here stitching this a week or two ago. A very long labour of love, I thought it was worth sharing, it's a cross stitched Christmas stocking, it hasn't got its black shading stitching yet, but doesn't it look great!
And, it wouldn't be my blog without some farm shots, SO many rainbows this year, quite like this one!
And more overcast skies, this times with galahs in my tree.

And, to leave you on, this little fellow was voluntering to be next when we were lamb marking. Pick me, pick me!!
Hope you are getting some sewing done, cheers, Tracey
ps sitting up watching the AFL footy show tonight, well done to Shane Crawford who has run almost 800 kms in the last 10 days for Breast cancer, over $400,ooo raised. Well done Crawf, you are a legend! Between him, and Jim Stynes cancer battle story, I am feeling quite emotional! Inspirational men...

Incredible how different all those kittens are.
Moggie is glad one stayed to look after you. She was a little put out that Mother actually left the house for some hours today.
Aussie guys are pretty good are they not??
Those two are certainly special.

What an adorable apron. It is so sweet. They are really making a comeback and there are so many cute patterns out there.

I did that same stocking for our grandson many years ago. Yes, it IS a labor of love.

Your little kitties were all so cute. Glad that you kept one.

Cute aprons, kittens and lambs. I like the stocking too ... used to do lots of x-stitch before quilting took over.
