Bendigo Sheep & Wool Show....

This is one show I cannot miss..

Had to have my shopping fix, as well as help man the North East Yarns stall.

I travelled up and back the Saturday and Sunday, as I was working the Friday.

Caught up with my shearer nephew and my Merino breeder brother. He can't understand why I have coloured sheep!!!

Bendigo Sheep & Wool Show

Big day tomorrow. Off early to Bendigo to help man the North East Yarns stall, of which I am a member.
Have to pull out a few things from my stall boxes to take with me.
I'll post a sample. Hope it works.

Work....less craft

Had to work today, but managed to finish plying some Alpaca that is part of my contract spinning that I am doing for an acquaintance.
I now should be putting up the hems of my partner's jeans that have been sitting around for too long (well, he left them in a plastic bag on the floor of the bedroom so I forgot they were there), but I am very tempted to sit at a spinning wheel. Although I could still continue to knit a scarf for the North East Yarns stall at the Bendigo Wool Show at the weekend.

Rainy start...

Up a little bit later today following an earlier start for the Girgarre Market yesterday. Today started with a shower then raining more just as we go to feed my coloured sheep and the cows and calves. Stayed sitting on the tractor so the seat would stay dry.
Have spent some of this day carding some more wool, cutting more material for our mystery quilt, and some spinning.
Plus setting up this blog (finally).
