Beautiful Day here at Kotta

Love these mornings when it's not to hot at the start of the day and were able to have a good night sleep. 

Winding up the electric fence so the cows can come back in here after milking tonight. 

Love where we live. Farming is a hard gig at times but a great lifestyle when the kids were young. Bit of a juggling act at the moment being teenagers but wouldn't have it any other way.

Diamond Dreams

JJust been doing a spot of quilting and quilt making over the Christmas school holidays.  There should be less running around for the girls.  But the door is like a revolving door with kids coming and going.  But I do like it that way. Love that the girls can have there friends come out and stay. 

I have been needing a quilt for my king size bed for awhile and couldn't decide on the pattern until I seen Rob Appaells U tube clips.  And I found Diamond Dreams.   Loved it and so fabric searching and love the Little Black Dress by Basic Gray. A moda fabric.  I don't like quilting such a big quilt but it's done now and I like the way it has turned out. Now hubby won't be pinching the quilt off me this winter.

From rain we made hay

A few months back we had so much rain we didn't think it would stop   But this was the result out of it.   It's going to really help us this year and the milk price is crap this year so we have to keep any costs down

But now we are back irritating again as the ground has dried up so fast. We even have cracks in the ground starting to appear again. And we haven't had much hot weather yet.  

Now on the sewing front................

I have made these few quilts for my nephews and niece. I have been a bit behind in the sewing department so I'm having a catch up. Hope they get some good use out of them. I have a few more projects on the go   Just need time to get back into the sewing room.

Rain, Rain, Rain

Not much sewing been happening here at home but I did go to the Adelaide  AMQ and what a fantastic 4 days there  so much information to put into practice  I need a holiday at home by myself.  I would be kicking goals then.  I will upload some pic soon.

We have had more than average rain fall in the couple of month.  But more in the last couple of week.  We are not under water but very very soggy.  I have add a photo of a area that is only 50kms away near Bendigo.  I just feel for those people.

Cheers Kez
