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.
This chook (chicken) is an escapee. Every morning after I have opened the door to the chook house and come inside our house she has been over the fence to freedom. All was fine until one night we were a little late locking up the chook house and one chook was missing. I sadly thought that Mr Fox had come around early.
But Mrs Chook was fine. She found a good hidy hole and settled in for the night.
David trimmed one wing and still she got out.
Here she is telling her friends how good it is out in the big wide world. Mrs Chook was climbing up this fence to get out, she wasn't flying over the fence at all. Now the fence has tree branches at the top so no more climbing over the top.
I have been spinning, dyeing yarn and making scarves lately. This is a "Neck Scarf". A shorter style scarf with a brooch. The scarf can be worn in a few differnt styles using the brooch to keep the scarf in place.
The Arts Centre Melbourne Sunday Market has an extra treat for you this Sunday. The Stiletto Sisters Here will be performing from 12 noon till 3pm. So come to the market, visit the stalls for artistic hand made work, buy some yummy food and relax and listen to The Stiletto Sisters.
I am about to pick my crab apples and this afternoon I will make crab apple jelly. Lots to do before then. Orders to finish and items to list on the website.
The day is just perfect. Dogs have been walked and have fresh water as Darwin swims in any water available, chooks are fed and I've even had a conversation with the sheep. Vegie garden needs some assistance but that is on tomorrow's list.
