For those still getting some snow, there are more blue sky, summery pictures ahead so read on if you would like to bring a bit of sunshine into your day.
Also needed to make a new batch of 'chook' cards. This is the my design which I then glue to the front of the card. I have used some different fabrics from those I normally use and I am more than happy with the look. There are a lot of chook/chicken lovers out there and these cards always seem to be popular
Here are a whole flock of chooks, funny how the back can actually be more interesting than the front. Must be the simplicity of the black and white. Maybe I should glue them on back to front!!
It was soooo much fun but a little bit fiddly and messy all those drips and splashes. The colours were very striking whilst wet. The orange faded quite alot as it dried, but we were still very happy with the overall result. He had done a great job tying it and there are some great 'sunbursts' on the front, back and shoulders. Oops, haven't got a photo, sorry.
We had a couple of glorious, Spring like days in the middle of the week, so we decided to drive our van down to the local waterhole and have a picnic. I used to come here with my painting group and paint some of the scenery. Not being a great painter I would always find it very frustrating, but just take a look at those perfect reflections.
Here I am "lamby sammy' in one hand (made by No 1 son and I must say they were very nice) and a cuppa in the other. My mum who passed away 3 years ago would've loved doing this sort of thing, so I took along a duck mug she gave me, just so I could have a little part of her there with me, if you know what I mean.
Now after all that 'speed sewing' to be ready for the market tomorrow, I find out that there has been a mix up in the dates and it's actually NEXT Saturday the 6th of March, it's a long weekend. SO if you happen to be in Beechworth or the nearby vicinity drop in to the Buffalo Hall in the main street a couple of doors up from the Laundromat.
