Wow its mid March already and will soon be lambing time on the island- i just dont know where the time is going!
So winter had been very kind to us but i have discovered in the 11 years I have been here that one should not become complacent as winter here usually happens in February!
And so with a false sense of hope in February we were then treated to a proper artic blast in March. Storms and days of the white stuff- it just hasnt been like that for years, indeed this was the snowiest year ive had here.
And then, as if the biting cold and horizontal hail had all been a dream the next morning we awoke to Summer! (well that may be a bit of an overstatement, but from wearing 3 layers and thermal everything within 24 hours i was down to one layer and sunglasses!)
The sheep seemed to take it in their stride!.
With the promise of warmer days to come i was in preparation for a Spring Fayre at the end of March- not done an event at this time of year before so we shall see how it goes.
After the success of the winter garlands i was encouraged to make some Spring Garlands- i mean nothing says spring more than sheepies and birdies so ive done a variety of both. Check out the shop, there will not be many available this year, though i can make most things to order.
Speaking about orders ive had a commission to felt a customers pet pooch so i will share that one once the owner is in possession of it!
Meantime back to the felting for the next few weeks- more wall hangings to complete!
During the xmas season i managed to finish 3 large blankets but think i will put them in the Shop once i have made complimentary cushions and lampshades- so stay tooned if you fancy wooly-fying your interior decorations this year! Baah for now!
