New roof on the old half of the sheep shed! (near side in the photo, for hay storage)

Not quite ready to pack in hay for next winter yet, but we’re getting there.

The sheep are impressed with the progress so far. They’ve been supervising very closely-

In other news, we’ve got nothing in the way of cherries this year (boo), but little quinces (yea!)

I just love how the little pears grow upside down on the tree. They look so cute and perky.

Introducing Mr. Bulky Spinner!

Isn’t he handsome?

Here’s a closer look at the flyer-

Cool, eh?

It’s bobbin-led, of course, so it is really different from spinning on my other wheels, but I’m starting to get the hang of it.

Gonna make me some nice think squishy yarns.

      Janice- it all came together. I bought it on consignment at a local yarn store. pretty sure the flyer and bobbin are original to the wheel.
