I finally cut a branch off of the Willow bush (which is now tree like) today.










 I have been searching for an easy basket to make but wasn’t able to find anything on the internet.  I will go back to all my books.  In searching the web I found a basket which uses pussy willows.  It was done by Martha Stewart after a trip to Bulgaria.  She watched a group of women make these baskets and had them show her.  It’s a sweet basket which I hope to make and whenever I can get some sheet moss.    I did go out today in the woods but everything is frozen solid.


On Tuesday Sadie will be 16.  She has done well this winter of course at 16 she has lived way past the average age of sheep.  She like where she is and enjoys her meals, gets up and walks around many times during the day and probably when its warmer will want to go out again.  All the sheep sleep out at night and she always did too.  But she was smart and knew when she need to be inside.  Her Mother Lottie lived till she was 16 so long life is in her genes.


My friend Susan is coming over tomorrow.  Every year we promise each other that in the winter we will have project days and this is the year we are finally doing it.  We see each other so rarely but e-mail everyday.


There are some things that you know you probably shouldn’t do but know that  you will never be sorry you did them.  Maude is one of them.  She is a delight.   In the short time she has been here she has won my heart.

One more carrot please

Thank you so much for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.     Carole
