It's been a busy week here at our wee lifestyle block. There's been loads of exciting spring activities, and some sad ones.
One of the exciting things to happen over the last week was the arrival of two new lambs. It's lovely to see them bouncing around the paddocks.
But something else exciting happened this week too. Wait for it......
It was exciting that the lambs were still alive after the mother had had so much trouble during her labour, and it lasting for 8 hours or more.
But sadly she lost a lot of her internal organs and the vet had to put her down. I felt silly sitting in the middle of the paddock holding her head and crying.
I bought her 2 wee lambs inside and they slept the night in our laundry. A ewe lamb born first and a ram lamb.
What a joy.
Would you like to come help me bottle feed them?
Hope you're all having a lovely weekend,
See you soon,

I have started looking for exciting bits and bobs to take with me for my students to use. I found a whole card of this pretty lace and it will take dye well.
Have you ever attended a class and been given a goody bag? What sort of things were in it? And how many things were in it? I'd love to know if you have time to leave me a comment!

But then in the mail on Saturday I discovered a package sent from America full of vintage laces, buttons and cotton! WOW! The laces were tatty and some were torn, just the way I like them, and some were stained, and I like them like that too.
My lovely lace merchant knows what make me happy.
They are so much apart of me.
Thank you. xxxx

Yes I know, you are probably thinking I have very odd tastes! But that's me.
I'm wondering what you collect that's just a bit odd?

Well if you haven't then you should! LOL All good stitchers have one.
I don't have a light box, can you tell?
It will end up having a very close relationship with this lovely vintage fabric :)
Are you all busy stitching?
