February and March updates

Ed put up a tire swing for the girls.  They have lots of fun on that.

This is a pillow I made for Sally one evening.  She found this piece of fabric and had to have something made from it.
Here is Audrey modeling her new apron I sewed up for her the same evening that I made Sally a pillow.  Audrey chose the fabric from my stash.

Here are Toby (on the right) and Hercules (on the left) taking a cat nap.  The blanket is Duke's bed, it i near the woodstove.  They just thought that was a good place to snuggle up and take a nap.
And the big news for the week is...................we got our first turkey egg yesterday!  Isn't it lovely?  Turkey eggs are just like a chicken egg, only they have a much bigger yolk.  mmmmm!

Now that we have turkey hens laying eggs we know they are mature enough to be breeding.  We have two toms who are not doing their job.  They are more worried about strutting their stuff and trying to prove who is top turkey.  So one of the will be dinner soon.  We have several roosters that need to go in the freezer also.  Good thing, because we don't have any poultry in the freezer, just beef and pork.

I have photos of my grandchildren to post too.  Just have to get them off the camera and onto the computer.  More to follow this post.  Just need to get to bed for now.

Well, hello! So glad everyone is well and that you're keeping busy with guests and taking excellent care of those girls.
A mama's arsonal of fabric can make the rainy season more pleasant, eh?
Looking forward to pics of the younger generation, too!

Hello Mrs. Mike! Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Yes, having lots of fabric and supplies makes it nice to take an afternoon or evening and do something creative. I keep telling myself that I need to get busy and do some sewing before it is gardening time again.

Tire swings - that sure brings back some memories! Looks like all is well and thriving at your place. Your girls just keep on growing and they look so happy. Good to see the pics.
