Three Little Pigs

So, two great big pigs went to market (as breeding sows, and they wouldn't have gone if they hadn't done the terrible thing they did........) and


Two of the six Beginners and their blocks.
 We had the second workshop of the New Style Sampler Quilt course this week and Sandra and I were amazed at how hard everyone has worked.  They had all done lots of stitchery blocks, and quite a few were personalised, which was amazing since there were only three weeks between the last workshop and this one, and  we had Easter in between.  Anyway, Sandra taught them lots of Applique techniques, so hopefully there will be lots more blocks by next month.

Meanwhile, on the farm, this April weather has been making life difficult with it being very warm one minute and then freezing the next.  We are having to bring lambs in to warm them up:

Mattie keeps guard

Feeling a bit better so having a look around

Let's hope it soon warms up properly.

Lambs popping out all over the place!

It's that time again!

Jonathan and George have been working all hours since we started lambing last Friday.  So far, touch wood, we haven't had to bring any indoors
