A Few Days in the Country



Just spent a beautiful couple of days at Chookys. Some how Chooky and family ,minus one bookworm arrived in Goondiwindi and what a nice time we had. Then I was convinced and or kidnapped to be held at the Chookshed  for a few days... Not that I complained one bit..... LOL

The one thing I know is that when you have the opportunity to do something you love with friends you should  just do it.  Its great for you emotional and creative self. 

The other thing I know is that I have the best husband in the world as he is always supportive of such ventures.........Thank you Mr Bird.


A few days  sewing at Chookys.... 2 baby quilts quilted and bound






Looking out the window of the chook shed


The bag for the SAL in progress.

Fairy girl and I finished a bag each . Mine was for the SAL.  I modified the hexie bag from Tis the Season by Natalie Bird





Just a little something to keep us going through the night.

Mr Bird's home  Chili Jam with Cheese of course!
                                                   One for Chooky, Jules and I
