a busy weekend

Well my weekend has been very busy. I've managed to prepare one bed in the vege garden ready for planting winter veges into. Although just have to take my little bucket round the sheep paddock and do a collection of the black gold stuff they leave behind, lol. It works wonders when it come to growing things! I also picked some strawberries, (a few last of the season stragglers), and dug up a few potatoes.

Had my sister and my niece come and stay for a couple of nights. My niece was competing in a National Secondary Schools Mountain bike competition and managed to come 4th! We were very proud of her, she's 12.

I also found time to get a little sewing done.
Decided to break into my stash of batiks and make some nice bright tissue pockets for the Etsy store.

Then made some ATC's for a swap with Ann in the Netherlands, the theme was 'Vintage'. Hope she likes them!

As Sunday comes to a close, I hope you have enjoyed or are enjoying your weekend.
