stitching and marking.........

loving the holidays............full on so far but good............
got another block done for the SAL..........
some lamb marking.........they spin around on this cradle...........ear mark (so we know who owns it), vaccination needle, squirt of stuff so it doesn't get fly blown.......
it's always a big day..............
Bookworm can draft sheep..........saved me doing it.......

  11. School holidays are the best times. I loved the time away from the normal routine. There's always something going on at your place. The house block is lovely.

  19. Wouldn't mind living in that house... it looks so cheerful! Brilliant photo's of work on the farm. They look fantastic in black and white. Never seen sheep whizzing about on a merry-go-round before.... they look like they've lost all their inhibitions. Is the object to make them so dizzy they don't notice the needle and the squirt! ;o))
