We brought three chooks on Saturday morning...on Sunday morning we had one chook, two holes into the chook shed, two piles of feathers, and two upset boys :(
DH has now fox proofed the chook shed by securing mesh on the ground, around the exterior.
On a more positive note the wall hanging I made (All Aussie Creatures by Milamac) for the boys won fourth prize in viewers choice.
Quilted by my friend Elaine Kennedy (Pine Grove Quilting Studio, Adelaide), I think the fun and cute animals she quilted in appealed to young and old. I had a request to make another one (to give to her grandkids) and another lady asked me how much I would sell it for....that left me a bit stumped, but luckily she understood that it was a gift to my children and not for sale!
This is my prize, 8 x 40 cm WOF pieces of Tilda fabric!!! And it was donated by my friend Ann's shop, Periwinkle Patchwork (Warrnambool) which was nice.
And the of course I did some shopping!!
Some large pieces for backings.
Two patterns - one is for a bag to put my hand work in and the fruit themed needle keepers - cos I have a think for fruit! And lastly a roll of some "moody" blues, not necessarily reproduction prints, but I couldn't resist them!
Happy quilting, Sue.
