Hmmmmm not so happy with the knitting ... so macrame it is ... another wet awful day ...  Sad

There is still quite a bit of wood to be removed ... I never thought I could do it!!!!  Have got a lovely speckled bark hazel shank for it to go on ... I originally had the ears lifted but was concerned that because of their delicate nature I decided to change them just in case they get damaged in use ...



Have no idea why the picture is upside down ... bought some teddy bear eyes for it!!!!

Not sure where this month thinks it is going but it sure is going ... hope to harvest hazel shanks in the next few weekends ... have to get the job done soon ...

So even the macrame idea was flawed ... but all is not lost ... found a site in the UK which sells it.   Cannot wait to receive my order ....

Finished carving one pheasant head and painted another one for sticks ... am quite pleased with them ...

Two days of cold rain ... took my shotgun in to the gunshop to have swivels fitted so I can add a sling ...

We have had rain, rain, more rain and even more rain ... but it managed to keep itself at bay today in the vineyard ... thankfully ... have been supervising contract staff of late ...

The latter part of this week will probably keep us away from the vineyard ... oh dear, it is Winter afterall I guess!!!

We have lost two and half days work this week on account of the storms ... road are closed on account of snow ... very bitter indeed ...

Just finishing off my sling for the Yildiz ... it has gone quite well ... now to use it and see if my measuretions were correct ...

Bastille Day ... vive le Tricolore ...!!
