Birthday toys

We are staying with our niece & nephew in Sydney - he got a couple of drones for his 50th birthday & the boys had a great time checking out the flights of the drones.  He got two!

Must have hurt!

One of our chooks is producing this type of egg every now & then. I reckon it must really hurt to lay - it's quite large & the shell is wrinkly!

Christmas Stockings

A coupled of cute Christmas stockings have gone to Claire & her brother, Oscar.
This is Grand-daughter, Benny's Christmas stocking.  Made last year & each year, I'll add a little charm - the white snowflake was last year & this year was a little green heart (can't see it in the photo!)

A Quilt for Claire

Made for a friend's daughter - from charm squares - such an easy pattern.  I used old doilies for the label - think it worked out nicely.

Sherwood Stitchers Bus Trip

This year - Sherwood Stitchers annual bus trip ended at Rosewood.  Another member, Olive & her friend, Margaret, prepared a great feast and we visited two Patchwork shops - one in Raceview, Ipswich & the other in Rosewood.  It was a lovely day.

New life in the garden

 A pineapple - another month or so & we'll be eating it.
Flower spike - wondering what the flowers will be like.
