Fleece and Eggs
I have had a great few days with my bestie friend, we spent two days in the cabin sewing and chatting, Martin took us out for dinner on Saturday night, he cooked us a lovely venison roast on Sunday, Monday we headed into town to Books for free so my friend could choose some books to take home, we then popped along to browse some antiques and bumped into Bovey Belle a fellow blogger.
The afternoon was spent spinning, A friend gave me a very cute little spinning wheel, his mum had gone into a care home and he was wanting a new home for the wheel, as soon as I saw it I knew it was perfect for my friend, I already have two so didn't need another wheel.
My friend is thrilled to bits with it and looking forward to learn to spin.
I have been spinning myself this afternoon, Lambert's fleece
we carded some up yesterday
Its coming on great
My friend went home today so its time to get back to normal
This is our egg record for the month
132 for the month, they have been laying really well, we only have 11 layers and there are all in there first year of laying, each week throughout the month the number of eggs is increasing.
Tomorrow is the first day of the new month and I will be starting to sow some seeds, I have held off this month but now its time to get going.
