Fingers Crossed

YES!  Fingers crossed that I may just be making some progress with sorting out my internet.  I'm not jumping to conclusions that it's been solved just yet but for tonight I am on and not making a cuppa in between pages loading.

Now let me see if I have any pics to update my minimal crafting.  Nope :(  Will have to transfer some pics from other devices tomorrow and share the cutest little pair of booties I made for grandchild no. 2 due in January.

Good night xx  My poor addled brain needs to reboot.  I'll leave you with this pic taken back when the weather was still cool ... 3 generations heading out to muster ... and no, Millie (little dog with coat) didn't join them.

Hello Goodbye August

Faster than a speeding bullet ... she logs on, blogs and logs out ... that's only if my reception holds for  long enough! It seems to be going backwards.

So here are my two small finishes for August ... 2016 has become my year of the wash cloths.

Good night  xx

What began on Friday night continued Saturday and Sunday nights to get Little ?'s Farm to this stage ... slow and steady.

Before cutting sashings I prepared fabric for stitching Michelle's sweet 'Calendar Bears' and Wendy's lovely design.

Thank you      >^..^<

I'm looking forward to joining in with Wendy and friends tonight ... how about you?

A Finish

A small item but it's a finish for this month.  Another wash cloth for the gift box ... my family members love using them. Now I can link up with Anthea for 'Christmas Through the Year' ... and I have an OPAM ... and a share for 1XmasItemAMonth ... a lot of pressure for one small finish :o)

One day I will have sewing to share ... happy creating.     >^..^<

June Out The Door

As June rushes out the door I'm just scraping in with a couple of finishes to share in between sanding and painting our kitchen and dining room over the school holidays ... lots of prep needed!

The first is a snow white wash cloth to add to a baby shower gift for one of our teachers.

My second finish is a crochet rug for myself.  I purchased the kit through Better Homes and Gardens magazine in April ... so I can finish a project now and then.  Of course I read the pattern wrong and had to adapt the pattern to make it bigger.

Life on Little ???'s Farm has come to a standstill but I at least now have enough different pink fabrics to finish the last 4 animals.

Time to dash and get some dinner on before the natives get restless.  This cold and windy weather does nothing for my internet connection and neither does rainy weather, all of which we've been experiencing off and on so there's not much blog visiting going on either.

Happy Creating     >^..^<

Little Macca Had A ?

Sheep, Bird, Goat and Horse ... little bird needs a wing.

A busy week with travel, farm shopping and catching up with a lovely friend Fiona.  We both look forward to our annual stroll, shop, chat around Farmfest and of course a coffee. Thank you for braving that horrid traffic and making it a great day ... I heard that the next day's traffic was just as full on.  It never hurts to dream either and wouldn't this gorgeous She Shed make a wonderful addition.

Then it was off again to a campdraft/rodeo/show day out with this little birthday boy ... Happy 2nd Birthday gorgeous grandson.

Onward with the next full week of visitors, mustering and off-farm work.

Happy Sunday stitching     >^..^<

Chookshed Party Wrap-up

Put dinner on early to cook itself so I had more time to play with these fun guys at the party.

Still need to source a few bits and pieces of fabrics to suit but I'm happy with how these four have come together so far ... had a lovely time at the party with Chooky and friends. Thank you     >^..^<

Party in the Chookshed

This cyclonic wind is playing havoc with my internet. Good thing I get to stay indoors and party with Chooky and friends to celebrate the Chookshed's 4th birthday.

Friday I was lucky enough to go on a quick shopping trip and made some fabric purchases. Saturday we had a surprise visit from our son and grandson ... pikelets for morning tea. After lunch was fabric playtime with the new purchases and digging through my stash.

Every quilt begins with a first step ... a new "Little ???s Farm" and every farm needs a dog.

Time to start cutting and tracing.  Thank you Chooky for a great party and I hope everyone is having a fun weekend of sewing.

Time Flies

Whether you're having fun or not it would seem ... it would also seem that it's all work and very little play for this little blogger lately. With some knitting at night, I have finished another cloth in the variegated pink "Giggle" ... another for the Christmas gift box.

1 small tick for OPAM, CTTY and 1XmasItem.  The crochet rug is also finished ... just need to weave in all those ends and then add tassels.

One stitch at a time.     >^..^<
