  1. What a beautiful and productive garden you have. Those chooks look super happy! And I'm loving your patchwork bedspread. I'm in the process of making a patchwork pillowcase for Stella. And I just read Country Style yesterday.. Sigh.. So many inspiring stories; I feel quite tired!!

  2. Your chookies look so happy and clean! Have fun with the swap!
