I came home from Melbourne last week with a cold starting which developed into the flu on Friday night and I have been feeling very poorly ever since. I was tired of lemonade icy poles and chicken noodle soup, which is our standard diet for the unwell in my household, so boiled a couple of fresh Isa Brown eggs to have with toast. I am feeling much better this afternoon.

Vintage Sheet Project, cutting squares and triangles., a photo by The Witch on the Barn on Flickr.
The power was off here today so I spent some time cutting squares and triangles from my Vintage Sheet supplies.

I have been doing lots of cutting of my vintage sheet supplies and also working on my June finish. There is a bit of waste with the sheets, the middle usually more worn and faded. These bits make good dusters and rags for our son's workshop.

On my way home from visiting our Daughter and her family, I sometimes call into a charity shop called "Friends of Hillside" It is quite large and gets in some very good fabrics sometimes. There is a very nice patchwork shop nearby that runs classes as well and I think some of the fabrics come from there. This little bundle was $5.00 and I have already made some bibs. Lots of potential in this lot for paper piecing, more bibs and there is a piece of printed felt that I plan to make into a light using battery led's.

I have grown some wheat in a seed tray as a green crop for the bantam and her chicks and they seem to like it. The pen they are in has no access to grass, but a hawk or a fox would kill them if they were let out to free range. They are growing rapidly and we think the dark one may be a cockerel.
