This is halfway through Project Bear. Bear is an Alaskan Malamute, and these skeins contain combings from hi lovley coat, carded and spun with Portland fleece, then plied with Suffolk. It's beautifully soft to the touch; may dye it with walnut husks for the final project. Will continue with the spinning a bit later tonight I think.
Look at the fantastic colour of these chillies - not my onw, but bought for pennies as date reduced items; they are being split and dried for use over the winter for curries and chillies after grinding.
Peeled and brined 1 1/2 kg of pickling onions; they will be ready for putting into jars tomorrow afternoon. Brining them helps retain their crispness.
Made a big pot of chilli for tonight's supper.
Yesterday was fairly productive in the few hours I actually got to myself - made a couple of jars of jam with the last of the British strawberries I found, again, a good bargain at less than half price; a gallon of leek and potato soup for the coming week; a caraway cake too.
Will no doubt nod off over the wheel later lol
