Oh Deah!

Has it really been 3 months since I last posted?? I can't believe how time has flown. I have been busy (as we all are). I have started up my own bookkeeping business and have also started some study, so that combined with my normal work, kids, husband etc has taken up so much of my spare time.

Anyway here are some things that have been happening around here lately

Firstly, something sad, we said goodbye to our wonderful friend Max. Max was 15 years old and was the best dog ever. He was part of our kids lives since they were born, has camped, fished, moved homes 4 times and was never far from any of us. We miss him everyday.

Some additions to our family - 6 chooks - our girls are now laying 6 eggs a day and are great to have around. DD has named them all and her favourite, Clucky, gets carried around, kissed and cuddled without ever complaining.

The other girls to come to live with us - 8 Dorper Ewes. And yes DD has named them too. These photos were taken not long after they arrived at the end of June. Since then we have welcomed 5 baby lambs - and yes, they have been named as well - Rambo, Buck, Sophie, Barbara and No Name.

At lastely I have found a little time to sew - these cushions are from Camille Roskelley's book Simplify - these cushions are super quick and easy - you can have two wipped up in an afternoon.

Oh and I never forgot (how could I) - much excitment - tomorrow I am off on my twice yearly Quilting Retreat to Middlebrook Station

Always a great weekend with lots of laughing, food, drink and stitching. See earlier posts.

Happy Stitching

It's so sad to lose a friend like Max - he's such a part of your family. Your new cushions are beautiful. I hope you have a fantastic time at the retreat.

Gosh and it's the 18th today and I'm only just catching up on your post. Glad to see you're still alive and working hard.
What is the pattern for the cushions... they are gorgeous and so effective. Beautiful :)
