The Adventures of Peg and Dale in the woolshed........

Hey Dale we were up bright and early this morning...........
Chooky was out mustering before sunrise but we had to whip up some scones for the shearers in the woolshed..........while Chooky was busy we couldn't quiet find her Nan's old scone cutter.......but we found the rolling pin and she told us how to make the scones.........
Here they are out of the oven ready for morning "smoko"...........
here we are down at the woolshed.......we were checking out the woolshed while they all had "smoko".......scones with jam and cream...........yummo....... we forgot to take a photo to show you..........but they were so good........
Geeze Peg we better not stay here for too long we might get a job............
better not stay here for too long either as we might get pressed into the wool bale..............
that was enough work for the day..............thank goodness Chooky didn't take us with her.......she's been out all day checking paddocks and mustering sheep...............
we checked out the quilts too.............man that pile is growing fast..........
This is the lastest addition.........

While checking out Chooky's sewing we found this EPP she was working the other day........
not quite sure what she is working on but doesn't surprise us it is blue...........
Catch you later..............
Peg and Dale.......
