I haven't had chooks for a while - just seemed to have a bit of bad luck. Really missed not having fresh eggs so off I went tot he chook factory and bought 6 chooks. these chooks were at the end of their egg laying life in the commercial world.
Quite a few feathers were missing however after just a couple of weeks we have happy hens who are regrowing their feathers and laying 4 eggs each day.
Always there has to be the hen pecker and this girl is the one in the group. Don't laugh - this chook has been undergoing some special training. Gradually I feel I am encouraging her to be a more pleasant animal.

Winter time and time for hand knitted hats. I will have hats for boys and girls at the Daylesford Makers Market on Saturday.
I have been busy making hats with flowers
And this buttercup hat
And this stripe hat.
Also dyeing lots of Chunky yarn and finishing off tea cosies. Daylesford Makers Market is always a great day.

Mathiske concert at the Learmonth Arts Hall. For many years we have enjoyed Bruce's music. The location for this concert was fabulous. We enjoyed a coffee at the Cafe 321 next door before the show.
The entrance to the hall was decorated with a plastic bucket of plastic flowers!! The hall area was separated from the other spaces with filmy panels hanging from the ceiling. Artworks were hanging on the walls around the hall.
Seating was a choice of a kitchen chair - you could choose from many styles of kitchen chair, some even swivel. Or for the early birds like us we managed to sit on one of the few couches draped in velvet - had a feeling the velvet was recycled curtains. And for the real 70's touch there were candles in bottles and tables with red table cloths.
The stage with colourful backdrop.
