I have been enjoying a little rest indoors because it is very windy this afternoon and decided to finish off a few sewing projects. Grace asked me to make her a group of Babushka dolls from this book. They really are a cinch to make up.I just have to jazz them up a bit with some beads and buttons and they are done.
On the afternoon shift at home I also got to watch these two little ladies come into the world. Their mother had been waddling around for the past week looking like she might pop.
This is one reason why we chose Suffolk sheep as the breed for us. Black lambs. They are especially cute. The two lambs born a couple of days ago are only cross-bred lambs but purebred suffolks are born black and over time grow white wool on their bodies whilst their faces and legs remain black.
I am also on fox and crow alert. Foxes and crows love vulnerable little lambs. I guess they must eat too but not these babies thank you.
Bye for now,
