Preparations for my trip to Scrub Stitchin' are under way. I should say under way again as I already have one kit ready to go and had started this one a while ago, but it stalled in favour of other things.
So anyway, I have all the blue grey fabrics cut for a second kit and have made a start on the back ground fabrics.
I've also started to print and cut papers for my next EPP project.
This was the fabric that caused me to be late for the last zoom session Chooky organised.
I was inspired by the cover image on the latest Quilters Companion magazine.
There has been some work, life, garden and domestic chores getting in the way of what I really want to do, but I've made time here and there to pick away at some stitching as well as the cutting.
One very important chore that had to be done over the weekend, was to help move our cattle. As a family we keep a small number of beasties on Tony's parents property. They in turn share paddocks with a neighbour who does the same. The job this week was to move the girls from the paddock in the foreground, to the green one in the distance.
We were racing with the weather. A very dark and wet looking front was moving up the coast.
I was on gate duty and the three boys went into the paddock to convince the girls it was time to move.
It took a while, but once they decided to go....
They were off! I almost didn't have time to get a photo.
There was a fake electric fence set up in an effort to keep them on the berm and not have them wander all over the lane. Of course one did test it out and wandered along the outside of it.
In no time at all, they turned a right at the blue truck.
These girls have made this trip before, they know where they are going and they know the food is better when they get there.
There they go, turning safely and happily in to the green paddock.
The rain started to fall as we hopped in to the truck to leave.
Other distractions have included this young man.
Time for me to go and do some stuff.
Hope you had a great weekend.
