Hello Cyber Sisters
Welcome to my fluff free zone… i.e. I’ve been getting rid of the fluff monsters under the beds and bringing the house into order for the spring, thus allowing us time for visits to Victoria Park to see the flowers. Aren’t they amazing!
But mainly as I’ve been busy during the day with the Boys, my crocheting is taking place in the evenings… and my continued headaches with the GroovGhan.
I’ve had to make a few adjustments to the pattern, not because it’s badly written, simply because I thought it could be made to look GROOVIER!
Anyways, I’m not going to post any more pics till I’ve got more of the ends weaved in… The pain you have to suffer for so many colour changes.
Plus, there’s another panel to be made up after a little thought and the border!
Besides that, I have had the most wonderful day … whilst looking around our local village, I came across the most bizarre sight I have ever seen in a suburban area…. A man (named Dave) walking a sheep named Nick…yes a man walking a sheep on a lead on a normal street!!!
You can imagine my excitement. I ordered Richard to stop the car and asked Dave if I could take a photo…. And so the conversation started… He walks Nick the sheep everyday as he weighs over 22 stone (140 kg) and needs to lose weight.
Nick is a seven year old North Country Cheviot and you should see the fleece he wears.. I can still feel the lanolin on my hands after stroking him.
So naturally, after running hands over this magnificent beast’s fleece I asked what Dave does with the fleece…
“Nothing … besides what the kids use for class studies I have a pile of it in the house. You can have it if you want”…
Shoot me down in flames, I haven’t got a spinning wheel!!!!
Nick the Sheep lives in a house called Shepherd’s Lodge with Dave and his partner… and yes, Nick the sheep is partly house trained and spends most nights in the lounge with his owners.
So today, I’m going to leave you with my photos of Nick Boing and Dave Palmer … the proud sheep owner of Rhiwbina in Cardiff!!!
So if you’re young or old, please go to this site to watch this video and really appreciate this lovely man and his ram!
Sending you much love and sunny smiles from Wales… helen x
