Back to Blogging?

I’ve noticed a few people across various social media platforms lately say they wish we could get back to blogging. They’re sick of everything being videos and suggested posts, while not being able to find the content they actually want to see and read. I’ve been pondering the idea of a vlog for a while now, but it’s difficult to do for me for various reasons. So I thought, why not try a blog? With just under four weeks to… Read More »Back to Blogging?

Whitefaced Woodland Sheep

Whitefaced Woodland Wool

The Sheep Whitefaced Woodland sheep originated in the Pennines on the borders of Derbyshire and Yorkshire. They are thought to be developed from the Blackfaced Linton mountain sheep with input from Cheviot and Merino. The breed nearly became extinct in the 1970s and while it has made somewhat of a comeback it is still listed by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust as one of the four Priority (most at risk) sheep breeds in Britain (on the 21-22 list). The sheep… Read More »Whitefaced Woodland Wool

End of Year Sale

It’s been another strange year and I feel like I’ve been in a bit of a limbo. I want to make a fresh start in 2022, which means I’ve been having a bit of a sort out.

On 2nd December at 7pm I will be listing everything I can find… Read More »End of Year Sale

Finding My Motivation

  • by

You may have noticed that I don’t tend to post much about myself either on this blog or across social media. Most of what I do post is about yarn and crafts with the occasional mention of animals I meet or walks I go on. This has been a problem this year, as I’ve lost my motivation somewhat so haven’t had a great deal to post about! During my break in August I had some time to think properly about… Read More »Finding My Motivation
