This hanging from Annie Downs' Hatched and Patched book should be in every caravan as a cushion or decoration!

Harvest, Chicks......and a quilt!

I know this is a bit soon after the last post but I've been taking lots of photos!

First though, is a photo taken by Dawn on Tuesday.  Maureen brought her first quilt up to baste and we were so impressed.  She had hardly even sewn before and look what she achieved:

We have been absolutely staggered by the quality of these quilts - each one has been absolutely stunning!

Next, Ava  and Libby came up with Granny to see all the animals today.  They have their own chickens but decided to come and collect some eggs anyway.  I showed them my broody and said I thought her eggs would have hatched by now..... we looked in and...

Four little chicks!  Could be two more by tomorrow.

At 3.00pm yesterday Jeffrey couldn't stand it any longer so the combine is up and running again.  I decided to go down to the Drier at Maidencourt to take some pictures of the 'behind the scenes' work.

George came in with the trailer and backed it up:

waited for Jonathan to come out to open it up but since he didn't appear, did it himself:

Pulled out again and shut the trailer:

Where on earth was Jonathan?

Oh, right........

Dreams of leaping around with bells on, perhaps?

Anyway, a short discussion on the merits of power napping and then on with the work:

Testing moisture levels

firing up the drier

The rape and wheat being stored - you can see the rape is up to the rafters:

Combine and corn lorry

Still a bit to do


  1. Ha ha that`s very funny. Excellent blog entry. Very interesting to see some of the processes and also how responsible George has become.

  2. This got me into a lot of trouble actually. Jonathan was cross about the picture of him. He said it's a tractor and trailer, not a corn lorry, and it's barley in the barn, not wheat.......
