Spring has sprung!
We've had some lovely days lately; it's so nice to work in the sunshine and the dry :-)
I've been working on my Wings and Pretty Things project again. I didn't have much left to do on the centre block but I'd needed to put it away for a bit.
This weekend I opened the box, and out came the circles —

I've made a bit of a faux pas, thinking I'd signed up with Cheryll and the gals for FNwF the other night. When I went over just now to link her blog to my post, I realised it hadn't connected properly and I wasn't on the linky list!!
Thank you Cheryll for having us all over on Friday night, it was lovely to stitch with everyone, even if you didn't all know I was stitching with you 😕
(Scroll on down if you're not interested in seeing my beautiful calves!)
Some of you may remember during our Level Four lockdown I tried to climb a hill every day. One of my favourite climbs was to the peak across the river. I've never put calves up there before but, because it is nice and dry, and I can get the bike and feeder up there, I've challenged myself to use those paddocks.
(When it's been raining, it's too greasy to tow the feeder up the tracks and not so safe on these hills.)
It's been great fun - a buzz to get up there and then lovely to have the view. One of my bestest things at this time of the year is to take photos of my calves with a nice backdrop.
|Day One, the first hill paddock.|
|Day Two, next paddock over. Feeding at the peak I used to |
climb to. Hmm not a good place to feed as the ground wasn't
level enough for a feeder (uneven milk flow) but we got there!!
|A good run down the hill|
|Hehe I could have fed them down here but it was more fun up the top!|
|Day Three, next paddock over, on the other side of the peak.|
|So happy with how well they've grown.|
|Then a bit of a stroll down the hill for a graze.|
The kiddies helped me feed the younger mob this morning (in a paddock at river level).

'til next time,
