Friends Swap

Hello my friends.
Glad you could come for a visit.
Please join me for a little while.
I`ve always wanted to join a `Friends Swap` .
So thank you Khris.
I have enjoyed this swap plus lovely to be emailing another friend.

Here is my parcels finished and wrapped.
My swap partner is Annik.
Annik I hope you enjoy these gifts.

I have an hour before the post office opens so best get chooks and Max (dog)
their breakfast then off to post.

These where battery hens. They are helping Hubby weed the garden.
They love their freedom and so friendly.
From three hens we are getting three eggs a day.
I have been able to give the odd dozen eggs away.
As it`s cold I warm their mash.

This is `Courage` looking for worms. 
She got her name as she was the first to venture out of the hen house.
Well must go.
 Thank you for the lovely comments as that feel like you have been visiting with me.
Happy Stitching,

Chateau Hexagon

Hello my friends.
We have a lovely day today though it started out quite foggy.
So glad you could come for a visit with me.
I have been stitching Lynette Andersons  `Chateau Hexagon` button club through
` The Country Yard`.

Patterns fabric threads of month 1&2.
There was a wait for threads and then I created my own mystery by filing pattern for month 1.
I forgot where I had put it!!!

Once found I really caught up.
Month 1 with the cute birdhouse button.
Love little miss kitty cat.

Month 2 with flower button and alphabet reminding me of a sampler.

Month 3 with glove button and I`ve spread a few of the hexagons that I have ready
for when needed.
I used three fabric for my wheel barrow.
Looking forward to the next one. :)
Time to go so thank you for your visit and lovely comments.
Till next time;
Happy Stitching,

Time to post

Hello my friends.
Sit down and visit for awhile and thankyou for the lovely comments on my last post.
The days go by so quick that it is a few weeks since my last post.
I have been stitching and busy rearranging my home.
First this is the progress on LHN Mystery Sampler. 
I have another house on the other side panel to stitch.
The way it is coming along I should be up to date by the time the last part comes.
It will be so nice to have another finish for myself this year.
I do enjoy stitching for others though.

We had our 5 year old grandson come and stay for a week of his first school holidays.
We spent one of the days  at Kairakau beach which is 30kms away from our home. A 30 minutes drive away. I was prepared for one change of clothes but could have taken more.
The water was too cold for swimming but alright for a quick paddle.
We also had a picnic. 
The week went so quick and then it was time to take him home a few days before school started again.

Cucki sent me these lovely gifts in friendship. She has blessed me so much with them.
Since I have been on line we have emailed each other and become friends.
Thankyou Cucki for being one of my special online friends. 

These two girls had to come home with me from Anni Downs workshop.
One is a kit the other will come together from fabrics and trims out of my cupboards.
My bag is still WIP but coming along nicely.

I thought I would show the full inside if my Merry Cox needle case.
I didn`t get to show it in the last post.

Well thankyou for your visit and will catch up again soon.
I must start on our dinner.
Happy Stitching,
