Cherry Pie treats......

Well the weight loss version - Cherry Pie Designs.............this should have been posted way back in May oh well...........you may see a couple more catch up posts..........
love the little mix packs...........
Finally I got my star finished a few weeks back...........
my first completely hand pieced block............
it's a new block design from Carol @ Cherry Pie Designs..........the centre is a scrap of her fabric too so a bit special since it is her design..........
Anyway must go..........
yesterday hand piecing block turned out funny  as I went to the blog this morning the plain piece of fabric is pink in the pic.......it should be white............woops.........I was trying to hurry posting from the car..........
hope your having a good weekend...........
I missed getting pics doing cattle work yesterday............my phone was dying power wise.........but lets just say it was freezing by the time we got the cattle back into the paddocks felt like 5deg.......the cattle were all blowing steam.........
When I came out to the Chookshed early this morning it was zero deg..............
I didn't hang around.........back into the fire........
Catch you later............

Chilly chookshed.....

It was very chilly when i got out to the Chookshed this morning at about 11am just 8degC even with the sun shining in ..........winter sure is here..........

some of your in the northern hemisphere are toasting in the heat........
Boy Wonder has a couple of mates visiting at the moment........
Made some Anzacs and Choc Chips biscuits today...........even tried freezing some of the dough like Cath@Home tried as my biscuit mix was very similiar..........

RIP Curly Pops your one of a kind..............

You came into my life and the blog way back here in October 2008
you stole me heart way back then.........
who knew you were going to be so special.........
you should have died then..............
you even starred on one of my cards...........
Sept 09
always coming to say hello at the garden fence........
March 11
even putting up with Boy Wonder's antics...........
April 2011
Your first baby "Cocopops" nearly killed you.......an expensive bill at the vets when others would have died..........
August 2012
Your second calf Cops...........
Feb 2013
You survived the drought and all the drought feeding............
Dec 2013

Jan 2014
your 3rd baby Lollipops..........
And you had your 4th baby earlier this year...........I took a photo of you when I introduced you to Jan@ The Little Red Hen but I can't find it............
Sadly your time came..........you were always going to die on the farm because we would never sell you..........I just never knew it was going to be so soon and from too much nice green feed...........
your one of a kind.........not to many get hand reared and I could always walk up to you in the paddock and give you a hug..........
in my whole life there is no other cow like you........
Curly Pops blog life is in this link..........
Catch you later.......
