The old woman
I shall become
Will be quite different
From the woman I am now.
Another I is beginning.

We’re all zonked here at Hayestackhayes!! The weekend has been full of action and it has gone all too quickly. Yesterday I went out to see how the boys were doing at go karts only to meet one of the mum’s I had never met before. I remember thinking this woman looked a bit worn and perhaps older than me by years. As I sat and spoke with this very friendly and nice woman I was to discover that she had actually attended the same school as me and was in the same year!!! It was amazing how many of the same people we knew and we had a blast catching up on news. The most interesting thing however was, the more we spoke the younger she looked. Can you make sense out of that? I hope to meet up with her again.
I had hoped this weekend I could finish most of my projects as I was going to have all this time up my sleeve....didn’t happen that way. I will show you some of my half finished projects. Here is my cloth doll that still needs some clothing. She stands quite tall and is a pattern from Homespun.
A project using recycled items, an entry for the show. I just loved making these mushrooms out of old egg cartons. Put some folk art paint on it, glue it to old wine corks and there you have a mushroom.
Can you tell who this is? I'm not telling. I will show him when he is stitched up and stuffed. I can tell you he's going to a special little boy. That's all.
This project I have finished. It’s a scarf and the photo didn’t do it any justice at all. It is a very nice scarf, but with my photography skills, I can make anything look less!!!! Lol.
My poor old Chester was beaten up by Heckle and Jeckle and I managed to save him from certain death. The younger roosters were hand raised and are very friendly to people, they even jump on my back and left me hand feed them. They both decided to attack Chester, so I put him in a different cage with a couple of his girls until I find a home for the other two.
My poor boy
He still has dried blood on his head and his right eye has only just opened up this morning. I just adore his tail. It isn’t like most rooster tails that come out to a point, but a big fluffy ball of black feathers. That’s it from me today. The weather is sunny and warm, but the rain winds have started up and we are supposed to be having some rain tonight. Fingers crossed for the farmers.
