Long time

well Hi to anyone still checking in on my little Blog  .I have been busy and a few big changes have taken place in my life  so here is a little catch up first DH and I are going to be Grandparents in April to say we are excited would be an understatement  we are getting a little Grandson  soo happy for our eldest son and his beautiful GF. we have moved to a little Hobby Farm its 10 acres of pure Joy for us !!!still renting but very happy .we are still in the getting organised stage .A chook pen has been crafted from an existing building (no Chooks as yet but I am looking for some ) also a goat by the name of Lenard came with the place  lol he is a beautiful cheeky bugger and thinks my roses are for his snacks and that the veranda is his playground  He gets on well with Tyler and Archie our Cattle dogs so that is a good thing .we have plans for a vegie garden and I picked up a bread maker from a garage sale New never used so I plan to start making our bread again soon . I am still sewing and when we get unpacked I will have a shed for my sewing yay it is already lined and ready for sewing as the owner is a sewer as well and it was her studio so yay for me it has a built in cutting bench I just need to get the boxes and furniture out of there so I can start sewing . I will be adding pics as I take them and will try to keep this blog updated a bit more often I have succumbed to facebook and spend a bit of time there   but miss this blog .
ok I hope you are all doing something you love .Hugs Beth
