Sheep!

Heres a couple of pictures of the sheep posing in the field by the Silverdale Hotel during the Local Food and Produce Festival so that visitors could see both the textiles and the wool providers, lovely photos taken by customer Sara.Obviously not taken by me the worlds worst photographer!

Arnside/Silverdale AONB Local Food and Produce Festival





Heres the entrance to The Silverdale Hotel where my display of local wool produce is being hosted during the local food and produce festival.From the menu board you can see how the owners make use of local produce! Wish I'd had time to stop for a nice cool drink in the gardens but  had to dash on to Bank House Farm to collect this years fleeces.

Heres a couple of pictures of the display finally set up at the Silverdale Hotel for the festival,with thanks to the AONB for including me and Jane and Paul Lucas for hosting and 'minding' the display! Entitled 'Woolly Jumpers from farm to yarn' we've embellished the pieces on display with  tiny sheep,butterflies,acorns and flowers.Most of these bits and bobs are charity or junk shop finds and are just to show the importance of the wildlife and conservation grazers in the area..Lovely views from the back of the hotel overlooking the Bay and the fields with the sheep who provide the lovely fleeces ------- can't get much more local than that!
 
 
 The map of Lancashire in the background is accidental but appropriate!
