How time flies

It's quite a while since I posted a blog. We've been so busy lately, what with Phil going to fishing matches every week, auctions, visits to the vets (ouch), putting stuff on eBay.

We have sold two of the baby chickens, a cockerel and pullet to a lady in Buckinghamshire. She is very nice and her chickens have a really good setup so we think they will be very happy there. They are so big now, and Zinny is a super looking cockerel. What a pretty boy!

I have been spinning some of Lily's Leicester Longwool fleece. I have commisssions for 4 pairs of wristwarmers from Sue Bailey's work colleagues, so need to finish them before the next Spinners Guild meeting next Saturday. Busy weekend as we are going to Sarah's on the Sunday for the Herring Fest.

Tomorrow we are going to Sheilar's for Sunday lunch, she invited us on Friday after the Bond knitting machine course. I went to Nova Trims in Leicester with her on Tuesday. So much stuff for crafts, anything you can think of. She couldn't get the pink fur fabric someone had asked her for, so I took her to the Fabric Warehouse in Lee Circle. Of course they had it, they have most things. She also managed to get some check fabric, mustard fabric and some dark brown cotton for her Johnny Rotten baby dolls. I have to say the baby reborn dolls are quite scary.

I found some pretty baby cord in cream with red flowers, I think it will make a lovely dress for Rowan for Christmas. I need to find a pattern so I can work out how much fabric I need. They also have some crushed velvet which might be good for covering the plywood shelves in the cabinet I bought for Sarah's workshop.
