man alive i have failed at my 365 mission already!
day one and two saw a brooch and a knitted hat - easy peasy..
day three and it poured and poured with rain all day, the farmyard was like a swamp, the animals were soaked, i looked like a drowned bag lady - not a hope in hell of donning anything handmade and lovely..
day four today and its goat worming day...
not an ideal day to waft around in a handmade delight..
i truly think being a farm gal that i have to accept that i look pretty appalling most of the time, i always snort when i see comments from women who dream of living a self sufficient life with land and animals and how they say they will wear only cath frickin kidston dresses, hunter wellies and fair isle cardis... honestly girls this happens only in magazine pages..
wanna see the reality?
my hideous outfit for the day
and believe me this is a pretty good day and is taken quite early on before the goats...
however, saying all this i will not turn my back on this challenge as it is one i believe in with all of my stitching soul, wearing handmade is a treat, an honour, but for me it just cannot be every single day...
not when there are creatures like this that i can sneak a quick cuddle with whilst holding them for worming ..
