End of Summer

 
The sheep are always looking to come into the back yard and eat the green grass under the quince trees.

 
The English Leicester curls are reappearing.



 Its time to feed some hay
 
 

 
End of summer but still hot.

Catching Up

 
The sheep were shorn in November.  It was lucky the shearing was finished then as a couple of days later David had a serious tractor accident and was airlifted to a Melbourne hospital. His recovery has been slow and he is very lucky to be as well as he is now.

 
The English Leicester curls are appearing already.
 

 
I have been rug weaving.  Today I commencing a purple, blue and grey rug as soon as I have finished my Etsy listings.

Working Weather



A knitted felted hat in grey and yellow.  New colour for spring.  Still hat weather.

 
Much of my time has been spent making prop rugs for baby photos.  This one is hand knitted in my chunky merino yarn.
 
 
 
 
 


A couple of photos of the floods here last week. It was so wet underfoot I spent the week working inside.
 

 
Not the biggest flood ever but got close.

Some Mornings

Up early.  Same most days as I have to get up at 5am on a Sunday to go to the market in Melbourne and I find it easier to get up early every day.  Then Sunday is not such a shock! 
So this morning as usual I went to the felting studio which is where the exercise bike lives.  I'm on the exercise bike, hear the baaing and see the hungry sheep.  There is so little grass the sheep are fed every day.

So off the bike and out to feed the sheep.  Ducks were then complaining they had not had breakfast.  May as well feed the ducks.  Postie came so collected the mail.  Dogs looked at me and asked about a treat.  Had better water the veggies as it will be hot again today.  And back on the bike to do my time!

 
Hoping the cloud cover stays for a while to keep the temperature down today.

 
Autumn just starting here.

 
 
Early morning
 
 

Some happiness on the verandah.
