the wrong pics.........

I've got the wrong pics as I was supposed to be working on my Foundation Paper Piecing again today to show you my progress...........BUT I got distracted when I told Fairy Girl she could earn some money carting all my sewing books/magazines to the "chook shed"........she earnt the money........
This is progress along the way........trying to sort them  all out...............
This is some of the progress at the end of the day.............much more organised and all away in cupboards.......
I am so excited when I am in the chook shed this little Fairy Wren and his mate have been visiting for a few weeks now.............they fight the windows all morning....... flitting around in the bushes out the window....making lovely little sounds......I didn't realise how dirty they are making my window but I don't mind they are so cute..........not like a stupid peewee that used to mess up the kitchen window........that was the whole window........this is just along the bottom..........
I'll try and get some better photos of them.........
With all this happening I forgot to get a photo of the progress from yesterday BUT I will try and get one tomorrow to show you...........
We had a wonderful day sewing.........got a bit done............flogged along one of my friends.........I did some cutting for her to help her move along faster but she is making good progress on the foundation paper piecing quilt we are working on together........
I have the next sewing sleep over weekend pretty well planned for a few weeks...........yippee.......
Hope you had a great weekend..........mine was very social...........
Take care til next time

PS thanks to everyone who is turning off word verification..........if you're unsure what to do I did this post in March...........

  1. I have the peewee problem - and not nearly as cute as that little fellow. Your chook shed progress is looking good.

  10. All those magazines. I'm impressed! Good response on word verification, I must admit I think twice about commenting when I see it, someways it takes 2 or 3 attempts. I don't have it do I? Lol

  13. Looking very nice and tidy! I went through my magazines a while ago and tossed a lot out (for the op-shop) and the ones I kept, put a post-it tab on the page/s that had a project I liked. Your fairy wren is very sweet - they are such lovely little birds. I have been watching Mr Bowerbird - he's been oh so busy entertaining the visiting lady bowerbirds.

  20. Fairy Girl has done a great job with your mags. I think I need her down here. I have oh, so many. Everything is sounding very organised in teh Chook Shed. I love your little fairy wren. He is slightly different to the ones we have flitting around, but they have never pecked our windows - yours must be nice and clean. Do you have your homework completed for your next workshop?
