Meet the Production Line.

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well.

I would like to introduce you to the Production Line - The Girls & Jim.

These are the latest addition to our family - 8 hens and one Cockerel called Jim2 in honour of my darling Mike's parent's cockerel who was called Jim.

I am really pleased with the gang, they each have their own characters and are giving me a lot of enjoyment, together with some wonderful coloured eggs - check out my blue eggs.

In addition to the new recruits I have been tending my plants in the greenhouse.  Today my strawberry plants arrived and I have been busy planting them in my containers in the greenhouse so roll on strawberry picking in June.

Last but not least, I had to travel to the Netherlands, and I was delighted to meet up with my lovely friend Sigrid.  She showed me her fantastic Ziggi jacket that she made up - boy was it a work of art and let me tell you, the picture does not do it justice.  Based on Sigrid's jacket and Ruth's Jacket I ordered, and have now received, this Style Arc pattern - I may have found the perfect pattern for that lovely soft sued I purchased.

I have been doing some sewing - It will be my lovely granddaughter Lilly's birthday on the 6 May (only around 4 weeks time) and I want to finish the quilt I started before we moved house.

Well that is all my news - until next time, I'll catch you later....................
