Posts and Utes and Amazing Friends

Pulling out posts with ute and brute Some people who know me (especially the ones in Adelaide) might be surprised to see me revving the guts out of the ute in an attempt to pull posts out of the ground. My wonderful big spunky husband is at the post, ensuring that the heavy-duty wire sling […]

Spinny spin-spin

My first attempt at spinning – using a drop spindle made of myrtle. I keep this in my car for when I have some spare time to spin on the run! (not actually whilst driving)  This week I went to the local spinners and weavers meeting. It was awesome! My mother-in-law gave me a spinning […]
