Lots of Chunky

 
Busy times here spinning lots of chunky yarn.

 
And dyeing the yarn.



And waiting for the yarn to dry
 
 
Some yarn has been listed on Etsy

 
And some yarn is for the Arts Centre Market in Melbourne


 
This yarn is spun using English Leicester from my sheep.

Frosty Mornings

 
 
We have new neighbours in the paddock across our gravel road. There is a third cow but she wasn't in the mood for a photograph today.
I really like to have cows in the neighbouring paddock.  Over time they become very friendly and come to the gate for a chat.
 
Most mornings at present are very cold and frosty.

 
The sheep are turning up for breakfast covered in frost.
 
Fibre Arts finished on Monday night.  I had a most enjoyable week.  Now I'm replenishing stock for the market and Etsy.  Today I'm listing on Etsy.

Its the end of the week and I still have so much to finish.
This morning I have dyed some yarn and listed yarns on
 
 
This afternoon I have more yarn to dye, Felted hats to finish for the Arts Centre Market on Sunday and yarn to prep for dyeing.
Tomorrow will be a dyeing day.

Cold nights

 
The sheep are being fed daily as the nights are cold and there is not much grass growth now.

 
I am going tot he Arts Centre Market tomorrow so I fed the animals early today.

 
Very tasty hay.

 
I have been spinning and dyeing yarn for my Etsy shop this week. I have listed new yarns today and will list more early next week.
 
Enjoy your weekend.

A Week Of Frosts



This morning was the start of a week of morning frosts. I fed the sheep last night so their wool had frosty tips the sheep seemed happy enough.
 



The grass was really crunchy underfoot.
 
 

 
I had difficulty opening the door on the duck shed as it had frozen.
The duck pond was a skating rink.
And I gave the dogs a warm breakfast.
 
And it will all happen again tomorrow.
