Seventeen

 We have 17 new arrivals.
Wow !
We can't believe so many hatched.


 So cute.




 Some of the roses that are blooming at the moment.
See the corn in the background.

 DH and I picked a 10 litre bucket full of peas.
A pity we don't get a 10 litre bucket of the little things out of them. Lol.
It will be a job for tomorrow.


I have added a few more hexies.

 But this is what I have been doing today.
Remember those little triangles from the Jelly Roll Race Quilt that were left after joining all the strips, well I sewed them all together.
As I didn't have enough half square triangles to finish both sides of the purse, I used the 18" piece that you cut off before you start the quilt to make up one side.

 One side  with the half square triangles.

And the other with a mix  of squares and strips.
I really don't like to throw things away, and for bits that were destined for the bin I think it's going to look great.
It will go to someone for Christmas.

Grandma, Mum and Bruce arrived home safely from South Australia, just after 8pm tonight .
A very long day for Mum and Bruce as  they left home this morning.
A 6 hour drive each way.

The girls layed 17 eggs today.

 Until Next Time.

Beautiful roses... love garden peas! I'll help shell...

I don't like to waste fabrics either... you're going to have a lovely purse when you're done!
