Yeehaaaa....

Finally!!!!!!!!
new computer and all set up, most things transferred over...
felt like our lives had been turn upside down... it seems we can't live with out these computers in our lives anymore...
I haven't been lazy while I haven't been posting
 and 
I have been stalking all your blogs when I have been able to to :)
be warned a few photos are to follow......
my rose bushes have been producing some wonderful blooms the past few weeks, so of course they have been picked and displayed around the house... I have shared a few too
I purchased another Daniel Morcombe rose bush for my grandson Judd
I had the pleasure of looking after him for a few hours a couple of weeks ago
while Mum had a much wanted/needed hair appointment...
he was an angel... only had to take him to Mum once to be fed... we walked around the shopping centre for a few hours window shopping and pending... no fabric though.
I have got those knitting needles out to... a bit rusty I am... but there is a wonderful local lady who is helping me with knitting in a round... a very new technique for me...... BUT....
look what I made....
so then..... I did this....
pretty impressive hey? well I think so hahaha and I have more loaded on the needles now...
My big boy needed some place mats... he loves his animals and love making their sounds
started a new quilt for a family friends little man... stay tuned for that one.
plenty of tree trimming going on
plus plenty of leaf raking... ho hum... just another 5 plus acres to rake
I have been playing with my ''scrappy around the world"
still need to sew them together
and
decide if I need more blocks ( psstt... I have a heap of crap strips)
trying my hand at bandanna bibs
might try and sell a few and a few other items
some crocheting has been happening...
why do they call it a ''controlled prescribed burn"???
we clearly its not.... then again yesterday... and this time the sun was completely blocked out
and turned a brilliant red.... controlled my arse!!!
I got to spend Mother's Day with this little man...
so I ain't been slack... just missing but active and missing you all

Mixed Bag...

The weather is cooling down here at Lower Wondinong... the days are much more pleasant to be doing things outside and the nights are cooling to needing a rug... 
I am a Summer girl but this year the humidity has been awful...
after living on a sheep station for 34 years and 72km from the local town,
 4 hours in one direction and 7 in the other direction to the nearest cities,
this is the first time I have ever ever ever had flowers delivered to my door in 34 years!
 they were from a very sweet girl... totally blown away...
As you can see the veggie patch is still producing
 these pumpkins came off vines that were self sown from my compost...
oh and there are still more out there!!!
 Our big Man had his first motorbike ride 
with his Chuck this week... wasn't to sure at first but loved it by the time he got off...
I have been crocheting for my DD1, it isn't for her but friends of both my girls, they are expecting their 2nd baby in a couple of weeks 
(after tragically losing their first during pregnancy)... 
she was caught touching my daughters rug and rubbing her hands over it... 
so DD1 thought she might like one.
 it is bigger than a pram or cradle rug
this is the wool I used and the big hook both from Spotlight...
well I am off to get organised before a fella comes to look over my computer... it has been playing up something chronic... driving both me and hubby up the wall... blue screen, white screen, shutting off, dumping, no screen but sound... it has been doing it for a couple of years and we have had it looked at several time but nothing is every found.............. but now we live near civilisation some one can come to the house yippeee and maybe find if it is our set up hahaha

Well Hello....

Yeah sorry I have been quiet on blogland but................
I have been extremely busy with family, babies, our block and a weeny bit of sewing!
firstly I need to do a little bit of tidying in my sewing room...
my poor teapot display need a good dusting
 then my shelves needed a good sorting out and things being put back in their right places and order... the other shelf of books was done too.
 our block down the back behind the house is just covered in leaves and the ''fire chief" who has a block behind us says ''the last owners never did any tidying or clearing up of the leaves/fallen branches/rubbish so our mission is to make a start... there are quite a few small straggly trees that aren't growing so they will come out and be dried for fire wood and there are a few fallen bigger branches that are going to be chainsawed for firewood this year...
 about 41 piles raked and 4000 to go hahaha
 I had this little fella and his Mum come stay for 10+ days while his Dad was away working on the oil rig... Mum's pregnancy is not a good one and she needs to rest, not pick up the little fella, no walking the dog, no hanging washing, changing the beds...
 so its compulsory ''nudie rudie" walks with Chuck and Yaya, the dogs, 
filling the trough up "nudie rudie"
swimming ''nudie rudie"
and 
just plain having fun while "nudie rudie"
 a lot of this through out the house
(wouldn't have it any other way)
 we also had a visit from Little Man Judd
being a koala with his Aunty
 a little bit of sewing amongst it all...
a small cushion for the Juddanaught... I used Michelle's ''baby alphabet" stitchery patterns.
 and some burping cloths
plus I have been reading your blogs just not commenting... 
still keeping an eye on you all

First cuddles with Yaya...
 Judd Clive 8lb 11oz 55cm, 3/2/15
he is just gorgeous (and long) ...
a few dramas coming into the world... 
things were going so well, then not, emergency c-section, 
then things got worse for a couple of hours, now all good...
So proud of the new parents
