carding


carding, originally uploaded by Emma Bradshaw.

Spent saturday washing and carding wool outside in the sunshine ready for some craft projects. The wool is from the hebridean sheep that Pete looks after, that graze a nearby nature reserve. We have also been enjoying the warmth the sunshine is bringing and the birds as they build their nests - we left out some wool in case they wanted to line their nests with our carded wool! What wonderful medicine sunshine is as we buy and plant seeds and plugs for our dug, bare soil and making sure the robin has his share of fat juicy worms!
