Happy Birthday to my Friend ChookyBlue's Chookshed

It's attended a virtual Birthday party this weekend, so wish I was actually celebrating with Chooky and the girls. But alas I'm like the other cyber attendees, stitching and celebrating at home from afar.

The weather is perfect for a stitch in though here in Sydney wild and wet.

Friday night saw me stitching pairs together for my next Lucy Boston Block, whilst drinking red wine with a bit of a cheeseboard for dinner with hubby watching a movie, the wind crashing and the rain pouring down.

Saturday, home alone and I decided the weather was telling me to lay in and read so I finished off a great book. Before slinking out of bed to the couch and Lucy, and another block in process, home alone for the best part of the day/evening one block quickly turned into another with the help of some ginger spiced Mojito, it was a pizza delivery dinner on hubby's way home from work. Oops Lucy took over.

Sunday and that weather was really crazy.... The images on Facebook were frightening and I decided that some chores needed doing, so a quick bathroom clean and a whip around with the vacuum and I settled in for a bit of stitching on Lucy feeling happy, and less guilty that I was truly having a me weekend, thinking of the chatting and fun going on at the chookshed.
Today I was joined by a few family members, we chilled out with episodes of wolf creek and I got my stitches on....completing 3 blocks over the weekend.  ***EDITED that's 4 blocks - just found one under my quilt tiding up - thought I'd done more 


This Last block being the challenge block, that I cut and prepared from my time spent in the chookshed from this post.
This Morning I was up early and went out whilst the weather cleared to share with you some of my walk that was blocked by the weekends crazy King Tide and rain.


And here is my Lucy blocks completed so far, she really is growing thanks to Chooky for the inspiration and Sandy of Shirallee stitches for my Blocks of the Month.





My First joining block
