Late Spring....

The year is whizzing by again and now it is definitely late spring; lambing is finished, the cattle are out in the fields, and Barney and Big Boy have had a trim ready for summer


Nice and cool!

Our 60 ewe lambs are due to be shorn at 7.30 tomorrow morning, so I'll be helping Jonathan get them down from the hill this afternoon.

My six lambs are now able to feed independently off the rack, so I only take ten minutes to feed them
AND they have taken a liking to their creep feed so I can look forward to weaning them.

Time to turn to the garden and we have started sorting things out.  I have cleared up the raspberry patch and Jonathan uncovered the path to the greenhouse which had been so neglected I'd forgotten we had one
(path that is, not greenhouse).

Things in there are slowly coming along; toms, cucumbers, courgettes, beans and flower seedlings.

And, most importantly, Sandra and I have drawn up our summer schedule! 

We start with a primitive stitchery on Wednesday, and of course the Medallion course is continuing.  On Saturday 13th June we have a bunting party - get a gang of six friends together and make personalised bunting,

  on Wednesday 17th June we have Helen C teaching crochet
Saturday 20th June Helene B will be doing a Foundation Piecing class  (not as tiny as her usual work so good for Beginners)

1st July we will be experimenting with Pentagons - which could be described as the new hexagons!  We'll be doing lots of 'fussy cutting' so, like a kaleidoscope, new patterns emerge

Lynne Johnson will be giving another class on the Yoko Saito Town Quilt on the 8th July and then on the 15th July Sandra will be making lovely big bears

and the next week we have a bit of Christmas in July when we have the Advent Elf day.

So, busy, busy, busy!
