Lawyer's Wigs

I'm rather impressed with the texture on these shaggy inkcaps.

They will be added to my list of things which inspire me to stitch. The ever growing list which one day I WILL get around to using.

Red in Autumn?

 He's only a youngster so he hasn't got his horns yet, but he his definitely a male sheep and he is called Rambo.
Alright, I know, it's not very original, but it suits him and that is what his name is going to be.
Here he is:-

He is supposed to be a doorstop, but someone has different ideas.

Ollie thinks that Rambo makes an excellent cushion and he thinks he may claim him for himself, but Doohie thinks not.

Another finished project. Top marks Elizabeth for guessing what he was going to be.

Is it for Christmas?

A project finished.
For the Christmas Tree? Maybe, I haven't decided.

Another project underway, but what is it going to be?

Watch this space.

I have been hearing the geese fly over for a few days now, mostly first thing in the morning or at dusk, coming from an easterly or north easterly direction. Last night I  heard them fly over in the dark and this afternoon they have been coming steadily wave after wave. Every year I get the same feelings of excitment when I hear the geese and I get very emotional. It's a wonderful feeling welcoming the geese back for the winter and I often have a tinge of saddness when they leave again in the spring. I've tried taking a photo of them, but the sky is so grey and I didn't have my camera handy for the ones which flew closer. Alright I'm not a photographer,but I tried. :-)

Does anyone else get so excited when they hear the geese coming that they do a dance around the kitchen shouting  "the geese are here, the geese are here" or am I just strange?
