The first is one with the theme "from the attic/garage". Given that I have never lived in a house with an attic, I decided to raid my Dad's garage for some rusted nails etc and tried my hand at rust dyeing...I am quite pleased with the result.
After finishing the ATC'S I have been busy making a couple of projects from Rosalie Quinlan's gorgeous new book..."Gift"
As well as the stitchery, I have also been making some little Babuschka Angels....and because Rosalie's book is called "Gift" and I have only recently started my blog, I would love to give away a few of these little gems...so leave a comment by this coming Tuesday...and they will be winging their way to a few of you....(I haven't yet decided how many I can bear to part with!!!)

Sheep aren't as stupid as the general public think...I took some photos on the way home from work today...I love this time of year when all the little lambs are being born...they frolic around their mothers and play together....I tried to get some close-up shots but as soon as they all saw me, they ran away....and the mothers seem to be quite protective of their lambs...besides...they also provide us with lovely wool and yummy meat....yes I do eat lamb...it is my favourite meat (shocking isn't it!!!!)
.......this photo is of just a part of my collection...these are displayed in an old printers block tray...(it was really hard to take a photo where the glare of the flash didn't take over!!!)
This quilt top is one which I have put together from blocks from a swap I participated in a couple of years ago through Southern Cross Quilters....each month for 12 months a different person made a block according to my chosen them....now all I need to do is quilt it.....
"I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me - just as the Father knows me and I know the Father - and I lay lown my life for the sheep." (John 10:14-15)

Here is another of my wildlife friends....I would have posted this photo yesterday but it was a surprise for a good friend of mine....I gave it to her today....so now it can be seen in public.
It is one of "Melly & Me's" patterns....I just love their softies....
I had a lovely day today celebrating the baptism of some good friends 2 eldest daughters....it is wonderful to see these 2 girls growing into beautiful young women seeking to follow the Lord...God Bless you both Tilly and Hayley.
