My name is Charlotte, sometimes known as Ms Lottie, occasionally as The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady. This is my blog, where you'll find me writing a lot about my quilting and textile arts and a little about my family's life in a small seaside town in New Zealand. Haere mai!

The interrelated to-do list.

Unexpected arrival but I'm grateful nonetheless!  This is the wood for fencing our waterhole.  And it was meant to arrive next week, but hey, I'm not going to complain because...

Once the waterhole is fenced, I can plant all around it.

Once the waterhole is fenced, I  Hubby can build a duckpen using the fence as one side.

Once the waterhole is fenced, we can continue from it and fence the top paddock.

Once the waterhole is fenced, I can use the electranet for it's original purpose - a movable run for the chickens.

Once the chickens are in their movable run and houses, we can demolish their current house, affectionately known as 'the abomination'.

Once the chickens are in their movable run and houses, I can plant WHEREVER I like and not have the cheeky sods dig it all out/eat it.

Look at him!  Sneaking under my chook deterrent wire netting!  Grrrrrr!

And here is one of my rabbits.  She looks very relaxed doesn't she.  She shouldn't!!  She's meant to have had babies today.  Ah well, maybe I'll get up in the morning and be pleasantly surprised.


  1. Yay for big piles of timber soon to be used for construction!

    Greetings Bridget

  2. Isn't it funny how one job leads onto the next, and the next, and the next ... Any bunnies yet? Just to let you know there's a little award for you over on my blog. Please don't fell you have to do it but would love to know 10 more things about you and get some new reading in the process! x

  3. woohoo for getting jobs done! As for the little bunny...she looks like she's enjoying that grass...may be her last supper before giving birth :-D How exciting!

  4. I love it when things can all fall together like that. But if the fence post would have been late and not early then you would have been in big trouble. I glad it all worked out.


  5. I love new fences. I get fence envy when I see them!

    No baby for Candy yet...

    hows the wind with you? Blowing a bit of a gale here.
