New Additions....

Over the weekend I received a phone call from a neighbour a couple of farms over. She's moving to Coolabah next week and had 10 little chicks and 6 hens that she needed to find a home for.... I love chooks and jumped at the chance to turn my tribe of 14 into one of 30!!!!
So I loaded the girls up in the car and we drove the 90km's to the neighbours to collect our new additions....Miss Connie nursed one of the chicks all the way home and insisted on calling it Polly.....
Polly and Connie spent most of the arvo together so when she decided that it was time for Polly to join her Mummy for a cuddle that afternoon I was very relieved....
Round 2 of the washcloth swap finished today with most of the ladies having sent their packages on time... It's great to see blog posts popping up, showing what swappers are receiving from their partners... Abby, Bec, Janice, Liz, Carol, Sue, and Tammy have all posted about the goodies they received...
What would you all think about an Xmas swap??? Leave a comment with some suggestions and we might be able to organise something to get started next month...
Take Care :)

  2. Oh how gorgeous Jodie. My son Lachlan loves chooks and was always wanting to hold them in the animal petting zoos we had. They werent that tiny though. Apparently my FIL used to have pet chickens too and they would follow him around the back garden, lol! Miss Connie looks as though she loves her chickens too. Yes a xmas swap would be fantastic. I did one last year where you included a little xmas ornament, but you could always include a little recipe or a treat, and knit a dishcloth or perhaps a pot holder in xmas colors, anyway just a suggestion. I would love to join in again as the last 2 have been fantastic.

  3. The chicks are cute!! You'll never run out of eggs Jodie! I don't think I'd be up for Christmas swap. I already am in two other Christmas swaps.... and have to complete sewing for our Christmas gifts for friends and family as well!!! Am keen to check my mail later today and see if my swap has arrived.....!

  6. I'd like some chooks. Just need to work out what we need, build it, and then we can get some. Fresh eggs are soooo much better that supermarket eggs!

    A christmas swap sounds good!

  7. I would love a Christmas swap! I didn't sign up for the last one because we were doing one and I was so busy knitting for my little girl's bday! But Christmas would be awesome! And I will be in the states where mail is a little more reliable! :)

  10. Oh! Miss Connie is adorable with her little chick!
    Having been a city girl all my life, I wouldn't know the first thing about caring for the little darlings. The thought of fresh eggs is appealing though.

  13. Oh yay - another swap. I have though about this one - how cool would it be to make 12 items. You keep one and then send of the remaining 11 in a bag with a prepaid satchel. In return you get your satchel returned with 11 different things:) So you would need 12 poeple in each group (does that make sense? More than happy to help if required:)

  15. How gorgeous are the chookies, we cant have them here, council rule about noise or something. Its cool that you said neighbour and 90kms in the same sentence, I cant even fathom that! I think a Christmas Swap is a great idea, I will keep an eye out when you post more about it.
