It just so happens to be -3 degrees, the bleak midwinter is upon us and guess what, the girls have started laying! Uhh? Not a single solitary egg for months and months, infact I had given up hope that they would ever lay again!
Here is the evidence, the third one since Christmas Eve. The first one was shaped like a pear! I guess it must have hurt? Ouch.
My girls are busy then and so am I. I made this coin purse last night and felt very pleased with myself too. You may think that sounds a bit smug, but believe me it is quite an achievement. I am totally incapable of making a good job of anything that involves cutting out from a pattern and piecing together...HOPELESS, no matter how hard I try I always make a pig's ear of it. The instructions for this coin purse took quite a lot of reading and re-reading but anyway, it all came together in the end, much to my amazement. I bored my husband rigid all evening, telling him what a challenge I had met! Anyway enough of that.
The lining is lovely, delicious, divine, Liberty Lawn.
Bit of a close up going on here.
