Chooky's 3rd Birthday Bash

Chooky is celebrating the Chookshed's 3rd birthday this weekend. Lots of people  are there - Some in real life and some (like me) in spirit! 
To make me feel like I'm really there, I have made the same Salsa Chicken recipe in the slow cooker like they are having in the Chookshed (recipe on Chooky's blog!). It smells sooooo good! 
Drinks are ready (but I don't think I'll drink them as they look too pretty!) 
I'll be working on my tablerunner with blocks from Lori Holt's "Farm Girl Vintage" book. Quilting and binding hopefully! 
I got side-tracked twice though today. Firstly there was a great idea in the latest Daphne's Diary. Making your own homemade makeup remover. It was so easy to make snd smells lovely. There's  a sweet label in the magazine to decorate your finished jar. 
The second lapse in concentration was because I had to mend my hubby's pants with a new button. This lead to thinking about a pink button bracelet to wear to our Sunday Stitching groups Biggest Morning Tea tomorrow. 
No help whatsoever from Squeaky who thought it her place to sit on the chosen buttons. 
But I'm very happy with the result. 
Now to get back to the quilting and then eat that chicken salsa!!!! 
Hope you're having a great weekend too! 
Teresa xx
PS Can't wait to see what Chooky and the rest of you girls get finished!!!
