Two Views From The Wheel

Two different views from my Majacraft wheel while spinning some dyed Kerry Hill fleece for weaving. The first was in the garden on Friday afternoon.

And a complete contrast.......
Watching the Le Mans 24hr race this weekend. Brilliant racing! Husband Graham and son Nick have been to Le Mans for the Classic racing and had a great time. We watch as much as we can over the day and, of course, I take advantage by doing lots of spinning. Keeping my fingers crossed that Porsche can win later today.

An Evening Dog Walk.

Summer has, so far, been rather chilly with persistent cold winds from either the north or the east and not very many sunny days. As we are fast approaching the longest day/shortest night this is quite depressing! Most evenings when it isn't raining I try and get a walk with the dogs down our lane and sometimes I venture into the woods.

Looking to the northwest.
Looking north towards the Long Mynd
The lane is lined with wildflowers but the bluebells are becoming covered now by the grass and all that lovely kek (cow parsley).
Eventually you reach the woods which are mixture of conifers and broadleaf trees. It's lovely walking along the track at the edge of the woodland hearing the birds in the tall trees and glimpsing the sheep in the fields over the hedge.
And finally here are my canine companions!
