Chookshed Party

Time for wine, stitching and a Movie while the rain is falling
Hope everyone else is getting some stitching or sewing done ?

Chookshed Celebrations

Celebrations for Chooky's Chookshed Anniversary were to start on Friday night but I was too exhausted after the gym to pick up my stitiching.
 We've been busy this morning but now it's time to relax and watch a movie and pick up my stitching again.
I'm working on Stina's Valentine Hearts.

I found this on a Facebook page. Teespring is where someone makes up an idea for a jumper or t-shirt and if they get enough people who would buy it then they make it.
Mine arrived today and I think I only ordered it a couple of weeks ago. Love love love it !!!!

Fun in A-D-E-L-A-I-D-E !!!!

 Last week I had a lovely trip to Adelaide for a friends Wedding.  Flying is definitely the way to travel around our vast land :)

I was Chauffeur driven to Hahndorf  in their Great 1963 Oldsmobile
 Hahndorf was such a pretty town

 Huge Lunch
 Everything is SO big in Hahndorf, even the furniture :)
  And the animals are very friendly
 Detour back via the City and a great shot with the Tram in the background

Something for Hubby

It's nearly 12 months since we started organising a shed in the back yard.
FINALLY the slab has been completed thanks to us NOT the useless shed builder

Also the driveway leading to the backyard is completed too

It will be great for Roller Skating on.
Now to do war with the shed supplier who has our deposit but have turned into useless creatures who are well known to Fair Trading :(

Sewing Bag Complete

Over the weekend, I completed my Hexie Sewing Bag from GDITC 2014.
I needed an Ipad bag for my upcoming interstate visit so I changed the shape and the handle of this bag.
I also didn't use all the fabrics in the hexies, I made a hexie flower and decided on stripes for the back instead.
I certainly LOVE how it turned out and it will be well used.

Friendship Stitchery

I finally finished my Friendship Stitchery I started with Rosalie at the recent Craft-Alive Fair

The weather has changed quickly here so it's time to dust off the heater

Nothing better than a nice cuppa and toast after our gym class this morning
