A song thrush

This dear little fellow was singing his heart out to me as I did my daily round of the feijoa picking.

The days are becoming colder and I couldn't find my fingerless mitts when I needed them, so I knitted another pair, using the handspun yarn that I spun last year.

Tomorrow I am attending a workshop on dyeing and felting with India Flint. It is a three day workshop and using natural dyes from plants and berries. Should be fun. I am off to pick some leaves and flowers for my dyepot.

Wow that sounds like a fabulous workshop- I remember my Mum used to dye wool with tea, beetroot and various other things!
