It's the Chookshed's 3rd Birthday..

and lots of celebrating is going on over there as well as here and there in blogland.
In the mail  was a new book that I have been waiting on since I ordered it a few weeks ago.. and so with cup of coffee, and  a comfy spot to sit in I am going to settle down and enjoy reading it ..lots of gorgeous quilts in it..

FNSI catchup

..a little more work on these I am.nearly there with the makings of the biscornu...


.and I opened one of my gifts from Mothers Day.  DD2 had gone online and ordered my very own muesli mix from the choice of ingredients at the Muesli Hub..and then named it for me using an old endearment/nickname my family used when I was young..and it was yummy, lots of fruit and nuts in the mix she made up for  me..

Friday Night with Friends

...gave me a chance to start the hardanger biscornu from the pattern I showed a few weeks back...I must say though that I'm not really enjoying stitching with the recommended fabric, is the first time that I have stitched with it....usually I like to use Lugana and I think I will get some to do a few more
And I can share Mum's tea cosy..this is the third one I have made for her small, medium and large teapots..rather funny though as Mum is not a big tea drinker, but she wanted them for when she has visitors..
