Saturday at last and a chance to 'play'.
Here's a few snippets and snaps of what's been taking place in the Sweet Birdy Love household.
The tartan swatches Nana go go sent have been snipped into already.
It really had to be more egg cosies.
I mean to say
chooks + tartan = McChooks
or McChickens depends where you live, hehe........
I have some more ideas swirling around in my head.
Little things that make me smile, will share with you over the coming week.
After a break of a few days from the crochet rug I am back into it but perhaps in a manner slightly more reserved...........
My enthusiasm for this project aggravated an old RSI type of injury, ouch.
Now in case you can't see the difference in the above pic and one from a few posts ago........
Here 'tis and it's big enough to throw over my knees.
I have invested in a wrist bracey thing and it feels good having it on.
Hopefully, it will mean I can crochet away to my hearts content without the 'ouch' factor kicking in later on.
This week has been warmer than the last couple. Maybe Summer was trying to redeem itself......
Yesterday, saw a brief shower of rain and the most spectacular rainbow across the valley.
If you click on the pic you can see the Maples changing colour.
It has been a little more humid too, which is not particularly pleasant, but today is lovely and mild.
Showers are threatening, but at least the breeze is keeping the humidity at bay.
Now where is the end of that rainbow?
Oh, right at my Crabapple tree, how exciting is that?
Better go and check for that pot of gold..........
Nope out of luck, all I could find were weeds.
There's also been a spot of cooking taking place.
Tomatoes with Basil to put in the freezer and use in Winter when we have brunch.
Bacon and eggs with a taste of Summer on the side, yummo.
Hubby has been a great help peeling and cutting up peaches.
They are lovely and sweet and quite a size due to the good season.
Hmmm, peach cobbler in Winter, sounds good to me.
My kitchen feels a little like the above.
Wouldn't I love a beaut fire place like that.
I do have a wood stove and as the wood shed is full to almost overflowing with wood, I shall be firing up the stove as soon as it's cool enough.
Not sure if my pies and cakes will look like those above but I'll give it a try.
Wouldn't mind that patchwork rug either........
Check out that huuuuuge dresser full of wonderful produce.
I know, I know .........
It only happens in the world of Brambly Hedge but I would love to live in a house like that.
If you haven't yet figured it out, I am a huge fan of Brambly Hedge.
Jill Barklem is a little like a modern day Beatrix Potter, in my mind.
Beautiful drawings and what an imagination.........
After the peaches there's apples to cook.
Next week there will be more apples ripening plus pears.
It doesn't get any better than eating your own home grown produce.
No 1 son has been checking his didge stand in preparation for Carnivale in Wodonga tonight.
A community celebration of music, food, workshops etc.
It's put on by the Wodonga council and is free.
It's a fun night with a wearable art competition and I have to say the ladies who enter this comp. are seriously creative with their outfits.
Art activities for the kids, a parade and 3 different stages with various musical acts, dancers etc.
Will be a great evening of entertainment, if only this rain would clear up and go somewhere else.
And of course Tig has been doing what he's best at.......
Need I say more?
So, this has been a few snippets out of my Saturday.
I hope your Saturday has been an enjoyable one too
Thankyou for visiting, it's always nice to hear what you have been and are up to.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and till next time take care,
