I finished the picnic rug that I started um, forever ago. It's quite wonk-a-riffic and my machine quilting is terrible but better finished than not! Just in time for autumn which is, to be honest, one of the more picnic-friendly seasons hereabouts. Besides, we now have LAWN! We always thought we were crap lawn gardeners but it turns out that since the neighbours had their two massive scary overhanging eucalypts removed, things actually grow. And look green. With not a lot of effort. So we have been picnicking on the picnic rug on the lawn in front of the chickens under the blue sky and it has been rather nice.
Which makes it sound like the pace is all relaxed around here which indeed it never is. Need more hours in every day. (Or maybe every night.) But we're working, working, working towards a 3-week holiday soon which is quite exciting.
And here's what our single baby chick looks like at 2 weeks old. It has quite a strong sense of self-importance as an only child of two extremely attentive mothers!
