CHICKENS – WOOLEN HALLOWEEN PIECE – LENNIES HERMITS

3 10 2012

HELLO,

Yesterday the gate was left open so the hens could finally get together.  This worked out so well, having them in the same area for 6 weeks or so.  They saw each other every day so It was no big deal when the gate was open.  The greatest thing is that Amelia (no tail feathers) was  taking good care of herself and showing the others that she is boss.  Good girl!  Despite having no tail feathers she is a feisty hen.  In the picture her feathers are ruffled when someone was helping themselves to her food!!!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WOOLEN HALLOWEEN PIECE

Today I am starting on another pattern that I bought from CAMP WOOL several years ago.  I loved it done it and can’t wait to get going on it.  I have bought several of the key colors and the rest of the wool I will get from my stash

Yesterday I was thinking why did I buy all those patterns 2 years ago.  I was working full-time, my knee was still not operating well and I barely managed all the things I needed to do.  Well as with this pattern I have never seen it again anywhere.  I think when you see something that  you just love you should get it if you can.  You may never see it again.  I hope to start cutting this out tomorrow.

 

LENNY’S HERMITS

Today Patti, a follower of my blog and a blogger herself paid a visit to the farm.  We chatted over tea and hermits for hours about chickens, cats, and our beloved Ireland.

The hermits I served today were  from a recipe given to the WOOLGATHERES SPINNING group by a member, Lenny’s many years ago.  Lenny’s was loved by all and never failed to bring these delights to every meeting and event.  The date on the recipe is 10/88.  SHe used to make them in large batches and freeze them.
