Bendigo, Greenhouse, and a new spinning wheel!

on July 21, 2013

It’s been a busy weekend for us, starting Friday we headed up to Bendigo for the Wool and Lamb show.   Rachel is an avid wool spinner and knitter/weaver,  so this was her heaven!    We returned from Bendigo on Sunday with a car full of sheep related goodness and a new spinning wheel.

Rachel has had her eye on the Ashford Joy 2 portable spinning wheel for ages and managed to secure a great deal direct from the company.  It’s a pretty impressive piece of craftsmanship and it’s sure to provide her with a lifetime of spinning.   Hopefully she will also start to populate the craft page on the right side of this blog.

Bendigo was a fantastic place to visit,  we certainly will be returning!

When we got back we decided to put together the greenhouse/poly-tent,   it’s fully erected and currently stable.  It’s bigger than we expected it would be,  so we are going to have to plan out how the interior will look.   The first residents have moved in,  2 Bhut Jolikia chili plants which have been struggling through winter.
