Basically this means don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today (lit. a windy day is not for thatching). The sun was splitting the stones today and this afternoon I grabbed an hour in the sun with my lovely spinning wheel.
I have now spun two and a half batts and I am hoping that another hour will get the three of them done and ready to be plied.
Bit of a mishap occurred during the night. Naughty pussy cat, known as Blackie, got locked in the shed where the fleece is stored.
She decided to sleep on one of the pillow cases and ‘do her business’ on top of another one. I was far from impressed but calmed down somewhat when I took out the fleece and noticed that it was the part of Albie’s fleece which could be considered as ‘seconds’ or indeed ‘thirds’ .
It has now been saved and I’ll use it for stuffing cushions or soft toys (after washing of course)…there’s a small project I have in mind but will need to put it on the long finger for the time being.
