Chookshed Party...........part 2...........


the autumn colour is gorgeous on my Chinese Tallowwood..........
the days were glorious and the nights pretty chilly............
thank you girls for joining me to celebrate the Chooksheds 5th birthday......... I think 7 would have to be the max number in the chookshed..........

Diddles picked up her new turtle family from Sonia..........

I always say quilting is an addiction...........and it sure is when your opening dodgy little foil packages.............

but look what appeared...........
Sonia worked on hand stitching all her flowers down.........

progress on my quilt...........
stacks in progress..........

Progress of one of Lea's hand piecing projects............
Diddles working on Dancing Chickens and Flying Pigs.........Kate also worked on the same BOM............

Lea had show and tell.........it's gorgeous.......
Girls busy stitching.........
don't bump that tray on the chair or the whales will be a disaster...........
I am making my quilt from this book............
I saw Debs quilt at GDITC show and tell.......I knew  I wanted to make one.......
the book arrived last Friday...........
slowly getting there..........I think it needs another block of yellow...........
And I still have a few to move around by the looks of this pic..........
in the end I just shoved the unfinished block up to get an idea of how it  was going.............
Sadly all to quickly everyone was gone and the weekend was over..............
thanks to everyone who joined in virtually....
blogland is the best and i'll be hanging out here for many years to come yet
I've been getting around the blog commenting and i hope I have not missed anyone............
thankyou for helping celebrate......its nice to know we are sewing together in our own little spots on the planet..........linked with needle and thread..........
Catch you later.......
Chookyblue.........

Keeping the love of blogging alive

  5. Oh everything looks so fun and I envy your weather. Autumn is my favorite season. We're just about to welcome summer officially but it's been feeling like it for a while now. I enjoy summer but not as much as I do autumn, by far.
