Not my normal stitching!

An elderly friend, who ran the craft stall at our school fete for many years, has gone into a nursing home.
She is now doing a wonderful job of delegating from her bed, as the fete is on in April.
She has given me 2 jobs....sewing buttons on kitchen towels ( just 17)!!
 ...and doing a football logo on a rug she crocheted before she lost the use of her hands....this is for the I had better get it right!

Saturday night found me at our local show.
There is nothing like a country show...the colours...the smells of horses, cattle, sheep, chooks, dogs, dagwood dogs, fairy floss, BBQ steaks. ...The noises of side show alley, the rodeo, the dogem cars and screams from the wild rides and my favourite the ferris wheel.

The pavilion filled with show entries of needlecraft, photography, art, cakes, flowers, produce etc. Brings back memories of childhood. 
Bring on the Royal Easter Show....I Love it!

bad hair day chook

On Wednesday, 49 of our weaners..(.thats baby calves...just off their mothers)...went off to market.   Here are the mums standing around the truck saying sad...but then again , I think they are saying thank God they have gone.....I'm sick of breastfeeding!
