J gave me a drop spindle and plenty of fibre to do something with.
It is a beautiful thing but slightly intimidating…

Spent the last 4 weeks or so in hospital and now has new shoes and new clothes amongst other more personal bits.
Will have to do something about that lurid pink duct tape tho. Outpatients gave me a new holder but from next year there is no need.

She has booked her driving test in for mid-January. She passed her exams as agreed so we had to come good on our promise. It wasn’t my first choice but she found it and the price was good so she’s over the moon.
Just what we need – another vehicle to register and insure.

Both of these tops are hand stitched. The first is a wool jersey dyed using eucalyptus leaves from Lake Eildon. The second is a DIY from Alabama Chanin using organic cotton jersey.

A sambar deer has taken up residence down by the dam. It would seem he is an old stag that has been thrown out of the herd by a younger male. He has quite deformed antlers. We are hoping he wanders off before he pops off.
He’s been eating the neighbour’s bulbs.

The echidna was out wandering yesterday. Looking for his lady love.
The seeds are planted in their little greenhouse cos we are still likely to get a frost until the end of October.
And a batch of bath soap cos we’ve nearly run out. And maybe another batch next week for small Xmas gifts. It needs a couple of months to cure properly.
I wish I could get the text and photos in the right place, sigh.
I do love watching the chooks. He put a bale of hay in the Chook Mahal on the weekend and they spend the day spreading it around the way they like it.
