Sun up!

After another night of heavy rain, the clouds shift over to let the sun come through.....

....but the cloud pattern only allowed for certain parts of the land to be shone upon.

The  far end of our main field receiving the sun's rays.....

.... and the hill in front of our farm receiving of a soaking of sunshine, 
but with the cherry tree,  nearing the end of its blossom time, in the foreground and still waiting for its dose of warmth.

The weather held steady for most of the plum and cherry blossom time, but has become unsettled now the apple blossom has just started. Not to worry, it is as it is, and what harvest we do have, despite the heavy overnight rainfall we have been having which could damage the newly fertilised blossoms, we shall be grateful for. 

All is well. 

Bye for now,


Just to let you know that the YouTube vlogs are now on our sister blog: The Psychic Craftswoman. The link can be found on the top of the side bar.

Making the fleece jacket: Part 2

Finally....I have made a start on the fleece, which has been my first project on my quest to get my fabric stash reduced in size.

I have made a fifteen day plan of attack, and have documented my progress. 
This video covers the first part of my efforts at getting Lester's fleece made.

The Psychic Craftswoman does his fleece: Part 3

Now starting to sew the fleece together, and it proving not an easy task because of lack of instructions, the work sheet belonging to the paper pattern having been lost since I last used it. This is proving more of a problem than I had originally anticipated, but not to worry, we are carrying on with the make anyway.

Crafting Update: 1

Rushing in from chasing the young calves around the field so we could get them inside the barn for the night, I had a short time to post a video while Lester was busy with milking Bonnie and Lissie, which is why I was short of breath and soggy. (It was raining)

So this is my first crafting update and includes my sock pile: flat or magic loop knitting. A jumper in the making. Tackling a pile of half made pinnies. Making a pinny for bramble work. Finishing my first crochet shawl. Recycling Lester's old work shirt without him knowing the fate of his once favourite shirt.
