April....

it's Knitting in the paddock,

and reading books by the campfire,

and enjoying {most} meals outdoors, cooked on a fire,

and early morning starts with woollen jumpers, feeding stock and checking waters,

and extra long cuddles with a very special dog, Sally!

You see, a couple of months back Sally fell off the back of a motorbike while out mustering. Her back leg got caught up in the spokes of the rear wheel and it was horrific! Sally's very lucky to be alive, with all of her legs! So, this gorgeous dog is now my Millie's pet. They're the best of friends and Sally never has to work another day, ever.

  3. Mud and yarn! Sally was lucky. Geez, it can be a dangerous life on a farm. What a blessing to Millie and Sally to have this new loving relationship.

  4. I bet it's hard to keep the red dust out of your wool when you knit out doors!
    What an unlucky then lucky pooch!

    1. It's really hard to keep the dust out of everything Cheryl - but nothing that a good wash can't fix, that's for sure... xx

  5. Love your outdoor photos!
    Is that a shawl you are knitting? It's a very nice colour. How lucky is Sally to overcome her awful injuries and now have Millie to love her. <3 <3
