This week we have had beautiful fine weather, it’s been a wonderful blessing for the school holidays. There’s just something about a sunny day that just lifts the spirits… the mornings have been crisp and clear and the evenings cool, but not quite cool enough to light the fire yet. Today I spent a little time in my sewing corner, I’ve already started creating something for this months challenge which is so unlike me as usually I leave it to the last few days.
The cross stitch was made by my Aunty Colleen as a wedding present, but the frame has faded and worn over time… so out it came! I have had plans to recreate it for at least a year but never got around to actually making anything until today.
In other news… we have a new back fence! The boss asked me what I wanted, so in keeping with what we already have we got the same as the rest of the fence but made it lower that what it used to be… so now when we sit out on the deck we have a better view of the mountain…it is there, it’s just hiding behind those clouds!
While they were at it they rebuilt the wood shed that had blown away. They extended the shed that was already there, that housed all things farm and gardening related, it looks quite big and imposing now…
There is also a lean to built onto the other side for the farm bikes. Hopefully next week Stefan and I will sort out the inside… I am hoping there will be room for a potting bench.
And last but not least I would like to introduce you to two new residents of the animal variety… meet Miss Molly and Marmalade…
They are very friendly and the kids give them lot’s of cuddles, Marmalade has even had snuggles in Ruffles bed!
Better hurry and send this post, Miss Nicky will be here shortly and I still have tea dishes to do… we are going to spend the evening crafting…:o)

Thank you… I hope to get some more rug knitting done next week, it almost there!
