holidays at home: spitalfields wool and sheep fair

Blimey! Last week's sheep and wool fair was fantastic. John knitted and I felted. We ate cake and watched spinning and shearing. I don't know how the starring Bo Peep lookalike kept her cool with her woolly wig (North Ronaldsay, I think she said) and bustle while she gave a hand with the fat sheep.

Here's one that was prepared earlier, bless.

I haven't been to the farm since my son was a lad, and it's much bigger and busier than I remember it. There's all sorts going on and lots of lovely sheep and goats and veg to see. Visit!
