November News

Gosh this month feels quiet after the exhibition SEVEN MAKERS SEVEN VISIONS during the last week or so in October. We had so many lovely visitors come to see us in the field (we loved it – especially ‘show-off ‘Valiant, who thought it was great fun) and to see what was in the show. Ros was very pleased how people liked and bought her work made from our fleeces……in fact she can’t have a rest because she has to make nine more pieces of work commissioned from the exhibition. Our this year’s fleeces have not yet been made into yarn so it’s all rather difficult! But quite a nice problem to have sold so much of her things, that she has to make more. Ooooh!, we might become famous yet!

Anyway winter is on its way – we get breakfast every morning now the grass is not so lush and a new thing – Ros put straw down today in our shelter (Aunty Dawn gave it to her)! Oh that will be so cosy on a windy night. Also I think David has got someone to help him make the shelter larger. Last winter was SO horrid because of the constant days of rain for 7 months – it was horrid for our feet. We don’t mind the cold but that wet was very horrid indeed!


October News

Hello again

Me and my pals are quite happy the weather is a bit cooler now and less horrible flies around. Also our coats are getting longer to keep us warm through winter which will be coming soon.

We are also very excited that it won’t be long now before the marquee goes up in the garden here for the exhibition SEVEN MAKERS SEVEN VISIONS – look what my best human friend, David, has made Ros (we do love her too) to hang these lovely scarves she’s made from our fleeces – I must say I am proud how soft they feel!

Please do come and see Rosalind Stoddart’s work and the other 6 Makers work here at the Water Tower. The exhibition starts on Thursday 22nd October at 2pm – please look at my September entry for further details.

With best wishes
