A blog about farm life, spinning, my yarn dyeing, weaving and markets. I live with my husband on a small farm near Ballarat. I have sheep, mostly English Leicester as well as dogs, ducks, chooks and a cat.

An Apple a Day......
As long as I can remember this wooden apple has been in our family. The apple is a string container and lived on the shelf near the stove when we lived on the farm. I loved pulling the string and would pull and rewind often.
Now I have the apple in my kitchen. No history about the beginnings of this apple. No label or markings are anywhere to be found. My Aunt Bee turned 90 last week so I'll take the apple with me when I next visit her. Maybe she can give me the history.
