I had a few minutes last night where I did a little rotary cutting (no mood for cranking up the Janome)...next step of first sizeable finish for 2012 completed.....


72 squares lined up like little soldiers ready to be sewn together....

My husband (like most husbands) has a shed....however I don't believe a lot of husbands could lay (excuse the pun) claim to what he finds waiting for him each afternoon when he returns from work...


Of course, all real sheds have a comfy chair to chill out in......seems that 2 of our hens think like that also....they love to have a pressie for their male Mumma awaiting his return.......I love chooks - they each have their own unique personality....some may think I'm crazy, but some (well strongly hoping)  may think I'm not!!!

And finally for today I can share some piccy's of what I sent my Santa Sack partner...although I didn't take any pic's if you follow this link.....and scroll waaaaaayyyyy down to the bottom (Nomes had more than 1 swap partner and she did amazingly well in the gift department), you can see what I posted to pop her her sack. 
I'm very very pleased Nomes enjoyed what she received - it was my first online swap - and now I think I'd like to be involved in another - it was fun creating for someone else without knowing too much about them and using fabrics that I ordinarily wouldn't for myself.

On that note, I should attack some housework - on extended trade for the next 2 days, so best take advantage of some morning time around home and get some housecleaning done..ugh!

What smart chickens - do you reckon that you could get them to leave a message as to how you would like them cooked for the next morning's breakfast???
On another note, to put your links up to someone else's blog, highlight the name or a word like here or some such, press the link button and past the web address next to url, get it to test to make sure that the link works, then press okay. Way easier! In this post you could have highlighted Nomes and linked to that word. Give me a call if you don't get it and I'll help you. XX

What a great gift to leave you. You could have the sunny side up.

Loads of little squares - how are you going with them!

How cute of the chickens to leave your hubby a welcome home present!

I love the egg pic!! My hens have had a period of laying in all sorts of places (pecking order wars I think) - many of which I cant find - so I think having them placed so perfectly would be fantastic!!

Hey there Annie, it's almost been a month since your last post...hopefully you're ok and just flat out working/crafting (preferably the latter, but alas I know it's not as likely as the first) Miss you.

Hugs
