more snow...

heaps and heaps of snow today

but the wrong kind of snow

to build snowmen

so we went for the wonderful snowy walk instead

finley not phased by it all

but chickens not very happy today

they elected to stay in their run or under the workshop

 a lovely christmas card scene
it was too

making sure we feed the birds

and the depth of this snowy scene was about a foot by afternoon

a good shake after the walk

good time had by all

but going to stay in the warm now

and crochet a woolly hat

happy snow greetings
to you all

ice ice baby...

frozen everywhere today,

so unfortunately

no Bethlehem Fayre for me                                                                                                                                                          

chicken doorstops ready for Bethlehem Fayre

very sad, as its a lovely Fayre

but the roads and lanes near
nellie and eve hq                                

are quite treacherous

so i will unload the car and the lovely harris tweed chicken doorstops

and the lavender filled

owls and bunnies

made from recycled fabric

and harris tweed

and continue making my own nellie and eve yarn

 by wool spinning
jacob fleeces into my very own skeins

here's a close up of the wonderful grey white and brown colours this beautiful natural fibre gives


so a productive day after all nearly enough to make mr nellie and eve a hat!

keep wrapped up warm and snug
