Good morning or evening depending on where you are and
a big welcome to all my new followers.......
Thanks for popping by for a visit.
I hope all is going well in your crafty corner of the globe.
In between trying to stay cool and some other projects I have been doing a little bit of creating.
A lovely lady by the name of Shirley (also a chook lover) gave me a box full of beautiful woollen fabric samples. She asked if I could make her a chook and she chose these colours.
Shirley has a personality to match her colour choice!
So, here's Rosie, she's a bit like the Queen Mary under full steam, but I am quite happy with the way she turned out and the gusset (these things are the bain marie of my life, hehe...)is a success.
Not sure if she's a one off, but for a very long time,I have been thinking of making one.
Sometimes you just need a little push to get you over the hurdle.
I thought a couple of pics in the garden (where chooks often find themselves!!) was appropriate but the sun has washed out her colours.
She did like being out with the flowers, but not so keen on the bees...
For all of you living in cooler climes I thought some blue sky and sunshine pics of my Sunflowers might brighten a gloomy day for you.
They remind me of a choir, all standing up straight with heads held high.......
A bit of blue sky love ♥ going on here too....
They are putting on a great show at the moment...
...and keeping the bees busy.
You know those little fellas were still out at 8pm last night.
Don't they have a home to go to?....
Love the blue sky against the yellow flowers
It's been pretty warm here this week and I have been wilting in the heat, so I thought it might be wise to pick the roses and bring them inside where I can enjoy them rather than leave them to burn to a crisp in the sun.

Mothers' Love, William Morris and at the back
Blue Moon with Lady of Megginch.
I placed the vases throughout the house where I could enjoy them.

We had a load of wood delivered.....getting ready early for Winter.
Just needs someone to put it away!!
The beans are producing slowly but steadily, there's plenty of tomatoes on the various plants. The Spring Onions are lovely in salads along with the capsicum and there's quite a few little pumpkins developing on the vine.
There's always something from the garden used in our dinner...
There aren't as many Zinnias as in previous years, but they are doing a wonderful job adding colour to the yard.
Tig is doing what he does best.......
Find a disused carton, curl up and go to sleep.
Ah, it's a cat's life.
Well,it's been very warm this week although not too hot at night for sleeping.
We were planning to head away for the weekend away but it hasn't happened. That's OK later in the year when we have more time and it's not so hard to get accommodation might be better.......
So, they say a change is as good as a holiday and I got a bee in my bonnet this afternoon and entered the SMB shed.
That's 'secret mens business'....just in case you were wondering.
I roped No.1 in to help and we dragged out an old kitchen table which I intend to use for a sewing table.
I also decided it was time to sell a piece of furniture which had been stored for some years.
I rang the local antique dealer he came around half an hour later, gave me a price loaded it up into his car and off he went.
I now have a few dollars to put towards a 2nd hand storage unit of some sort...
So the spare room, becomes my sewing room once the bed is removed.
I have been talking about doing this for some time, today just happened to be THE day...
And, I am going to reclaim my dining table, yay!!
I hope, your week has ended on a good note and things are going according to plan.
