R used the tractor to push it together as it burnt. I poked dry sticks in as extra fuel.
R , laid a hose from the house down the bank and wet down surrounding dry growth as a precaution. We had sacks in the nearby creek wetting ready and a bucket, but none were needed.
The rain has now put it out. It did not all burn as some old stumps had dirt attached. It will dry for a while and be moved by the tractor and relit in the future.
I completed this little quilt top in Jacob's Ladder design.( 34" x 34 " ) It is quite tiny. I used all the small squares I had cut but may decide to enlarge it in the future.
I finished this wee mauve jersey. It just needs 2 buttons sewn on the shoulder opening. I liked the pattern and the different ribbing design. The wee grey beanie has a picot edging.
I have now started a little sleeveless wrap in blue. The merino wool felt really soft in the ball but not so soft once it is knitted.So far it is going okay but is a pattern new to me.
We are managing to take a few days holiday. We are heading South, by car this time. We will pack lots of warm things . We are getting quite a variety of temperatures here and know it will be colder down there.
Thanks for your concern about my eye. It has been totally fine . We went for our 2 year eye checks last week and my sight has not deteriorated so that is a saving and also reassuring. I can keep wearing my same glasses.
