Fun in my fabric world....

Hen house fun!

It was so lovely to get away for a few days and enjoy the company of Chookyblue and her family. Whilst I live in a country town, the life of a farming family is very different to mine...but I enjoyed having a taste of her world...now she needs to come and have a sleepover at my place!
There was a bit of friendly banter over taking home the quilt I slept under (really nice!)...
or "borrowing" the lovely sewing bag that Janet made for her (quite serious about that!)...
so I was quite horrified when I opened my sewing bag after returning home and found this little Christmas ornament Chooky was stitching...oops...Cardy might be going CUSTODIAL!!!! I emailed her as I was about to send her some shopping I had done for her...but it was a treaty surprise...phew!
Back to that shopping...Chooky needed some supplies for her SKofW SAL quilt...so Lea and I headed off to Singleton to do her shopping...tough gig, but someone had to do it for her! We had lots of fun, Lea needed supplies to make cot quilts for twin boys which are looking great...
love the monsters!
Here are the cows coming home to Chez Chook after some months grazing along the road...
and visual proof that Countrygirl Cardy knows that a Belted Galloway is not some type of posh trenchcoat!

So now you can add Cow Expertise to your list of many accomplishments. Being a personal quilt supplies shopper sounds like fun. Sounds like it was a great visit. Tracee xx

A belted galloway sounds like it would be a nice trenchcoat. When you find one send me a pic.
It was fun chatting with you while you were at Chooky's. Sounds like you had so much fun.
