Day Out

'Dizzy Daughter' and I had a very enjoyable day out yesterday at the Great Yorkshire Show ( Agricultural).
Lots of photographs were taken, but  I won't put all 162 of them on here.
 First port of call for 'Dizzy' had to be the rabbits, so we headed off in their direction and on route came across this sculpture.
 I intended to do some research and find some info. about it, but haven't done so yet. I would like to call it rabbit number one, but I think it is a hare's head on a man's body.

Eventually we found the rabbits, but were not impressed by the loud duff, duff, duff sound coming from the fashion show which was next door. Poor little rabbits, I'm sure they wouldn't have liked that awful din, with their sensitive ears.

I think more rabbit pictures will eventually appear on Dizzy Daughter's blog, 'Ramblings of a disigoth', see my blog list.

 On the way to our next port of call we passed by the trade stands, because that is not what we had come to see. However, one stand beckoned to us both and so we made a slight detour and what a fortuitous decision that was. Dizzy Daughter asked a question about her drop spindle and ended up having a free spinning lesson from a master spinner. Lucky 'Dizzy'.
 Blue because I didn't ask permission to post their identities on here.
The drop spindle is a clue to who we wanted to see next and pictures of them will be on my next post.


  1. I have a drop spindle but cannot work out how to use the damn thing. Maybe you can put a few pointers on the blog.
    I absolutely love rabbits next to cats but its a shame they don't live that long.
    Look forward to the next lot of pictures

  2. What cute rabbits....they're not the ones eating my flowers are they?

  3. Briony, I've never had a go with a drop spindle, but I'm sure Dizzy will post something about it, now that she's had a lesson.

    Jane, I know rabbits are good at jumping, but I don't think they would make it quite as far as your flowers. It must be some other little bunnies who are the culprits. :-)

    AJ, You're right it is a Sophie Ryder sculpture called 'Crawling'.

  4. As soon as I get chance I will put up some of the tips on using the drop spindle on ramblings of a disigoth...
