Nundle 2014

Girls Day in the Country.. Nundle.. another fantastic weekend!
 Lots of fun and laughter... I'll let the pictures tell the story!

 Show and tell

 a visit to Ratters Flat

till next time

OH Happy Day!

It raining its pouring… Lea is stitching by the fire!
(well after she fed the soggy wet calves)

50ml of rain today…YAY

Sorry I didn't take a stitching photo, but I did have a lovely day stitching while the rain came tumbling down and the dams started to fill with water. 
Then I drove 2 hours north to Inverell for a work day tomorrow. Thats why I have internet access tonight and I can catch up with blogland.

A sorgham crop on my way to Inverell…I just had to stop and get a photo of the colour!

for some unknown reason … maybe my lack of computer skills.. I can't upload photos of Nundle last will give it another go in another post.
see you then!
cheers Floss

where did February go?

Just had a wonderful weekend with stitching buddies at Two Rivers Winery in Denman, Hunter Valley…. Lots of stitching, laughter, bubbles and yummy food.

Lea, Kylie, Cardy and Karen
Rain Rain Rain! ... fantastic
 I worked on my 9 patch swap quilt.

Kylie worked on her BOM
                                         Cardy's wedding ring got another row

Just loving Cardy's circle game…nearly finished

Raelee working on her Violet quilt

a birthday present from Cardy..just love it… so does my tea pot!

It is so good to be back in civilisation for a few days and having friends to chat too… but I will be heading bush again tomorrow….. Back to look after my cows.

I don't get good internet coverage at the farm…so thats why you might think I have disappeared from the bloggersphere. (and I have!!)

Just to fill you in on what I have been doing.
Our farm is Very Dry.. and we need to feed the cattle.
 We have been buying loads of wheaten stubble
 And loads of sorghum stubble

Also pellets…7 ton of pellets!!
 I have to bag the pellets and take them out to the cows.

 I have 63 little calfs to feed…they eat calf pellets and hay….they are very well behaved

 To get the hay on the truck I have to use the car on one side of the truck…a ramp on the other side, with a strap under the roll of hay...
 I then attach the rope to the tow ball of the car and drive the car… very slowly away till the hay rolls up onto the truck..
 I then manoeuvre the roll around to the back of the tray and then put another roll up. (doesn't always work!)

I then take it out to the hungry cows… And have to roll it off!

 This has taken over my stitching time… But Girls Day In The Country is on in Nundle in 2 weeks and I can't wait!!
Looking forward to catching up at GDITC
Till next time
