What have we been doing

Goodmorning, once again another cold and frosty morning here.  We have had a busy week with dear husband going away and just the girls and I left to hold the fort.  There is so much more to do when he is gone, feed all the animals, check cattle (currently calving), check water... and the list goes on.  The girls enjoy doing all these extra jobs.

Also managed to squeeze in some crafting. 

I just adore this felt heart decoration that I have filled with lavender. 

Week 3 Winners

Goodmorning everyone.  Emeline and Elsie once again, each drew a name out of the hat for my little felt bird giveaway.  

Congratulations Melody and Mystica. 

Thankyou to everyone for taking time to stop by and visit and say hello.  I love when people come to visit.

Santa Sack Swap

There is a heavy fog here this morning, will have to wait till it clears to decide what kind of day we will have.
We had a very lazy weekend, haven't been feeling the brightest so we took it easy and did some crafting, the girls watched movies.  Elsie is a big Man From Snowy River fan (anything with horses really), so we watched that again.

I received by Sack in the post from my lovely santa swap partner Bronny, she was also kind enough to send presents for the girls.  They have already opened their presents which was ok by Bronny, they couldn't wait till Christmas, they haven't learnt the art of patience yet.  Here is a picture of the lovely sack she sent.

I know it is not the best photo, but it is a beautiful sack..  I am enjoying shopping and thinking of things to send Bronny.  The girls are also going to make and send some things to.  They get just as excited as me.

Don't forget to enter my Christmas in July giveaway..

Have a great day.

Week 3 Giveaway

Still following on with the Christmas in July theme.  This weeks giveaway will be for one of my felt birds/felt bird kit.  Once again just leave a message saying which you would like.

We've been busy in the household this week trying to get back on track with the school work and with visitors, it has been rainy here for the past 3 days, so dear husband finally decided to light the fire.  It has made a huge difference in the lounge room and our bedroom which backs onto the lounge room.  I don't know why we never lit before.   Well worth the investment of chopping wood.  Hope all is well in your world.

Have a fantastic week

The winners are:

Congratulations Shez and Rosie.    Rosie I will send you an email for your address.

Crafty day

The girls and I had a bit of a crafty afternoon yesterday, working on some new kit ideas.  Wormy (bookmark) and ginger (a christmas magnet/decoration).

Elsie's Ginger, a work in progress.

Elsie's Wormy bookmark finished.

Emeline's Wormy bookmark finished.

Emeline's Ginger finished.

The girls had a great time making these little things up, I didn't even have to help them, they did them all by themselves.  We had a wonderful crafty afternoon.
