Im back

...not that I was ever away as such. Georgia went to camp and took the camera then when she came back the camera became lost in the unorganisation and general clutter that is this house. But today, hurray i found it!! So what has been going on in the Good life tiny farm?  Actually nothing thrilling. Today Autumn made its presence felt with wind and rain and cold. Im glad as the chook area has the flies excited and I wanted some rain to calm it down. i have bought myself some gumbboots for the upcoming sludge that winter will bring there soon!

Happy Christmas!!

I love that the egg compartments (we have two fridges) are full. Check out monster egg at the back. Someone drew on him!! I have no idea who gave birth to this but it was oblong and bigger than monster egg #1  ! We also had golf ball egg which was a replica of the golf ball that is always in there...but GHIU ate it before I found the camera!!

We celebrated Art Deco week at 150 year old Stoney croft house. Lots of Art Deconess there. Brass bands etc. The title of the event was When the dust settles.. For those of you that dont know in 1931 Hawkes bay was struck by a huge earthquake that decimated Hastings and Napier. When the buildings where rebuilt they were built in Art Deco design. Now all these years later we always celebrate Art Deco week in Feb (the earthquakes anniversary) It gets bigger and bigger every year.
Kaimoana (seafood in Maori). This is what the ocean reward you with if you dive every now and then. Beautiful huh? Just lovely with  aoli sauce once cooked. Having a FO as dad means the girls are not scared or unsure of sea food at all!!
  ALSO I forgot to get a photo of my latest project in my world of quilting. It is a raggy quilt made from old flannel shirts and jeans. I explained this all to GHIU how it is made and how the technique works etc, but when  I completed my first row he asked why the seams were sticking up in a mess!! Guess that just proves my opoint that when I start to talk about quilting all he hears is a loud humming in his ears.. Next time i will post some pics. That means that cuurently I have started (started only!) Sheepish wallhanging, two scrappy sisiter choice quilts, raggy quilt, school house quilt oh and five pieced tops to be quilted. I REALLY need a sewing room in our next house!! One can never have enought partially completed pieces can one?!
Til next time Happy sewing\

Love Cherry
