Had a lovely day out on Friday at the Woolfest near Cockermouth. There was lots of fleeces, wool and fibres. Lots of things to feel and touch. I bought a bag of wensleydale locks, just lovely to look at, feel and touch, then put back in the bag until I decide what to do with them.

Had a brilliant day yesterday at a workshop on contemporary felt making by tutor Sheila Smith. Look out for her latest book on felt making, should be out in August or September, I've had a sneak look at the book, its going on my wish list. Here's the piece of felt I make.

Not much stitching but quite a lot of weeding.

Wow,after 20 months the tractor and gang mower are fixed and working again. Instead of using this little grass cutter to cut the grass

We can use this

Instead of taking 4 days to do it, the main part can be cut in a few hours and then I only have the edges to do.
