It Has Been Busy Around Here...

Shearing has been happening and is now over and hopefully it was our last and the next one will be the new owners... nothing signed yet but very very very close... happy dancing...
these are the pet sheep being shorn... the shearer asked me if he had any in his pen... I said all the sheep in these pens are pets... yes I do have a few hehehehe...
 hubby watching over them...
can you see him up there?
 and some one decided our son should leave his mark???
that is him holding the can of marking spray but he didn't write it... even the daughters border collie got some blue on her white bits... children just can't help themselves...
 trying very hard to get a photo of the first lamb born in the pet flock
 but Mum was being very protective...
 and Lucy was feeling left out...
 this is the first ever Dresden plate block I have ever made and I was a little nervous...
it is for my swap for the month of April here
 and this is the block I received for my March swap
 and I was lucky to get two blocks from Richard...

  7. Great pics Tarnyia and I can see what you mean by busy. I loved seeing a slice of our Aussie bush life so thanks. I hope all goes well for you and you are soon on the move to greener pastures so to speak. Lovely blocks too!

  9. Thanks for sharing pictures of the shearing process. I have a long-haired cat who needs to be shaved. Could I send him your way?

  10. My Nan was a cook on a sheep station called Booborowi, in the southern Flinders ranges. I can remember staying at the station on the school holidays and watching the shearers. I can still remember the smell of those sheep.
