Three things in one post...
First - look at the chicks! They're 4 days old now and they have wee feathers coming through on their wings and 2 of them have teeny tiny tail feathers. They are incredibly cute, and just like last year, Maude is being a fantastic mum.


Second - this is some of the veggie garden spoils for today. There are a couple of globe artichokes, a spring onion, lots of beans, a pam pam and a courgette ( almost marrow). We actually gave this basket down to the people at the Acorn.


Third - I've been doing this!
At work in between patients it can sometimes get very quiet on the desk. While L is working away doing teeth I was slowly going demented! So a friend of mine mentioned 'Why don't you do some stitching' she was even kind enough to send me some patterns - thanks Sue!
Anyway, I thought why not! Now I'm hooked. It's a bit messy but so far so good. One is going to go on a bag, the other is going to go in a frame and the last one ....not sure yet! In the chook house??

they all need a bit of an iron!
