A beautiful summer walk and some crazy coloured sheep.

We had a lovely picnic on Sunday with a walk up Castle Hill in Mere.

It is only 20 minutes from our house, but I forget its there.

Tony and Arthur took a short cut up the hill while I walked around the edge.

This is the same hills as the view from our house.

The colour of the grasses against the sky were amazing.

It really felt like a lovely ‘escape’ when we got to the top.

We had a picnic, then did quite a lot of cloud watching while lying in the sun.

It was so peaceful, I will be going back a few times over the summer holidays I think.

Image

Now for the colourful sheep! Influenced by my Toft Alpaca visit

and the colourful talk by Kaffe Fassett.

Image

I am making a few different garlands and these have been designed to go

on one called ‘Counting Sheep’. I will also make some into Keyrings

and will have the patterns for sale on my website very soon.

Image

They have been crocheted with Rowan wool cotton.

Image

Time to make the garland now.

Have a good week T x
