Hearts and ...Eggs!!

Great excitement in the kitchen this weekend...................
Our first 4 eggs from the Dixie Chicks
and another 3 today...woo hoo!!
Of course we had to have lightly boiled eggs for breakfast yesterday...words fail me!! (Never! I hear you all shout) The yolks were the most gorgeous colour...sunshine on our plates..

I'm still sticking to my 20 Minutes a day pledge.
I've been making something for Geoff for Valentine, something for our bedroom wall.
Sorry about the poor quality photos..
each heart is a different red fabric and I've been sewing the lyrics to a Van Morrison song around the edge.. I'm a bit slow at embroidery writing.......................maybe I'll finish by next Valentine's Day.
(Geoff has promised me a small gift , that's late too, but he's been making it on the quiet.
In the last couple of years I've had a stool with a heart cut out on the seat, a wittled spoon with a heart on the handle...............so watch this space!)
Best get a move on....
20 minutes a day is a wonderful idea, keeps me motivated. Of course, 20 minutes usually leads to 30, 40..minutes..... and I knit most evenings. It all adds up.
ps. Joan emailed to say her wooden leg was playing her up again after Friday's hike...my legs don't work when I try to walk downstairs....hehe

Clever Dixie Chickies! And clever you - I would never have the patience to embroider song lyrics - your handiwork is beautiful to see,

How much fun, to be eating "real" eggs. ;-)

Maybe its another spoon to replace the one the dog ate! Love the hearts Jude, great to hear the chicks are paying for their keep now.

NOTHING beats freshly laid eggs, does it? Lovely work on the sewing/embroidery front.... am sat wondering which Van Morrison song...... thanks for your lovely comments on my blog.

I think someone is planting those eggs in your henhouse.
It's funny that they all started laying exactly the same time.
So which one had a day off then?
The hearts are looking good too

The quilt is lovely, really unique and personal, & its good to hear that the Dixie chicks are rocking at last!

I am now an inch shorter having walked your previous posts with you, but really enjoyed them.

How is the grandchild cooking?
