I have been busy babysitting various animals/pets lately as well as looking after gardens in the hot summer, therefore not much (or not any) craft time.

These lovely brown hens are waiting for me every morning to let them out - 9 in total.  They are great layers, and one of the benefits of caring for them is fresh eggs!

Then these cute little silkie hens, one mother hen and three chicks, although the chicks are growing quickly.

Next comes the blue budgerigar, I must admit he is a favourite, although he is a little cranky.  Not sure of his age, but he loves his apple treat each morning.

Then the cockatiel, he did not want to have his photo taken this morning, fluffed up his feathers as if to say, "get out of here"!

He loves to be hand fed sunflower seeds, and gives me a "wolf whistle" every now and then.  Good for the ego!

Now for a funny sight this morning, when I went out to change my dogs water, a little frog was taking a swim.  I do not know where he come from, but he was set free in the garden

He is a little hard to see in the dirty bowl, and it was only 6:00 am, but it was such a surprise I had to get my camera.

I will be having a trade table at the Murrumbidgee Quilters Exhibition at Griffith on Saturday and Sunday 7th and 8th March, so if you are in the area, come and check out all the great quilts as well as saying Hi!

Until then

With a new stamp set (Serene Silhouettes) from "Stampin-Up" I have made the following cards, just using the stamps.

This next card, is a favourite using the Lotus Flower stamp, it was impossible to photograph, because it was so pale, but I hope you can see it.    The actual flower component of this stamp is made up of three stamps, so you can get great detail

I think my next investment will need to be some stamps with sentiments, I have so few.  If anyone can recommend some, it would be appreciated.

Until next time

Little Wallets - Finished

These little wallets have been waiting for weeks to have the stud closures installed... for about 15 minutes work, they are completed

It is so long since I have done any sewing, although that is about to change as my little craft group are meeting for the first time in 2015 on Monday night.  Would you believe it, we are going to be making more of these little wallets.  I think I will prepare some bright and colourful fun fabric for the next lot

My card making adventure is continuing, lots of new toys to play with.   Starting with this one, a Brayer ... fun!  Wait until I show you the results

Bye for now
