After Pete spending most of Saturday getting the chook pen completed, it was only fitting that I go & collect the girls
on Sunday! So may I introduce our 4
new girls - Mabel, the new hampshire,
Molly the little black pekin, Sally the golden silkie & our little white silkie, yet to be named by Stacey when she pops over. They seem to be settling in quite well, & while they were getting used to the lovely new pen, I was busy working in the garden & then taking some time out to work on a couple of my applique blocks for the Hearts & Hands Quilting project my snail mail group is working on.
So here are my blocks of teapots & apples. Just a little more stitching to go & they are finished & I'm up to date with it. Still working on my crocheted dishcloths for the swap so I'll be ready to post some out as soon as the first lot arrives. Next I need to get started on the baby quilt so it's made up before our little grandchild arrives in late July. Oh, & Pete also got the front fence finished off & the ground (which I'd weeded of those nasty prickles), was ready to be tilled................ I have the lavender bushes ready to put in, but just need to purchase my rose bushes first, so they can all go in at the same time & everything gets planted in the right spot. Once it gets going I should have a lovely front fenceline of lavender & roses!
