Small things.

I've been making more small clothes.  Shirred of course.  I've been breezing along then yesterday one turned out weird, I don't think the elastic was feeding from the bobbin properly, I re-wound it and started again and everything worked fine, so that was a mystery.

I'm looking forward to the Australian Quilt Market this Saturday with Corrie and Kerri (say that ten times fast!).  Corrie and I are planning on doing the workshops, then off buying for the shop with Kerri.    Corrie and I are hoping we can sneak off for some additional retail therapy once we are done at the market.  Some other family catch ups in store while we are in Melbourne.  Meanwhile hubby will be at home for the weekend doing lots of this.........

Hay raking this morning.

We usually make big round bales but the menfolk have decided to make some small square bales this time.  Here's the "new" "old" machine being tested out this morning.

This caught my eye in a crafty kind of way.
The bale twine wound around the tractor workings.
