Must have been the sunshine - got lots done! 5 loads of washing, 3 of them dry, one in basket, one up on pulley. Talk on the forum of mangles, so have put up an ad on our Freecycle for one, could be useful.
Got the onion skin wool dyed and out of the dye bath - now got some cotton in it for patchwork.quilting; also some wool in an alkanet dyebath. Will leave them overnight to stew a bit. Started off some fruit cocktail wine, hopefully fizzing away in the morning, and a lot of the green jumper knitted. No trees in, but will try again for them tomorrow - forecast doesn't bode well, but will wait and see.
