Having a great day.

Today is my birthday, as the weather is so unpredictable, Ive delayed my day out. Instead just pottering about, and enjoying my pressies 

A David Austin "Geoff Hamilton" rose bush.  I know just the spot for it. I used to love watching Geoff on BBC2.

   This delightful mug. 

What more could I ask for 
1. l love my cuppa, 
2.  Its green, my favourite colour and 
3. its in a shape of a campervan 
three favourite things rolled into one.  My daughter knows me well.

A bottle of Baileys, which always goes down well.  The card on the right my friend made, even the rose, very clever. 

Sometime ago last year,  a friend of ours got a pet lamb for his girls, and I asked that when it was shorn if I could have the wool.  Well last night I had a visit and a present of a large sack of smelly lambswool. 

Today,  I took a bucket full of lambswool and and pair of rubber gloves and rinsed the smelly wool 6 times till the water was clear.  Now Im not sure what to do next. 

 I need to wash it, to get the lanolin out, and when Ive washed Im not sure what Im going to do with it.  It seems a shame to use it for stuffing, though it would make wonderful stuffing.  It would be lovely if I could felt it or have it spun and knit something, maybe a present for his girls.  Any ideas out there. please. also been busy creating, it started with a sketch and 3 days later, I have created this lovely Yorkshire Lady, she seems abit like Marmite.  You either love or hate her!!
