The Site

It has been some time (years!) since I actually did anything to this site. Web design is changing immensely. I designed my first site about 18 years ago (make that 20 year now) when I did a (very basic) course on web design at a local school. I was hooked and at that stage it was html 4 and most websites were hand coded in html.

The Idea

The Lucy Lamb Crafts website evolved from there after I was encouraged to do a stall on the local farmers market. Can't say it was lucrative but I got to wash a lot of wool and sold a few kits and a few more hanging baskets, demonstrating that coloured wool I couldn't use in the kits for various reasons still had a use. In fact wool is a good slug deterrent I have found, it makes a very good mulch round shrubs to conserve water and the birds like it for nest building!

Funny how things take over and even a 5 minute witter on a website seems beyond me. Unlike my sister who has made over 300 posts on her blog over the last couple of years AND documented them all!! See www.feltabulous.blogspot.com

The Sheep (or lack of)

Lucy Lamb Crafts was a hobby. See Lucy's page for more on my wool cushion and rug kits, made with pure wool.

I learned to hand spin wool, though I have not done much recently. It is very time consuming, but a great way to de-stress. It never ceases to amaze me the range of colour within just one fleece. Wool is marvellous stuff. Sadly I no longer have any sheep.

New to wood turning

I have relatively recently discovered wood turning. My husband had an old lathe and suddenly I caught the bug. May go into more detail elsewhere. I am definitely hooked and may depart to the lathe shortly!

The Web

I am just now updating this site so this page and the LLC page are now responsive. Don't get me going on google and its search algorithms, suffice to say if you can't view it properly on a mobile it will be down the list a long way.....byeee! I'm working on it - still hand coding though I have dabbled with wordpress and may look at others - costs can soon become a barrier.

Also about to move servers, oh joy!

Visit www.rutlandorganics.co.uk if you want a turkey that tastes of turkey, or a cockerel for Christmas. I can recommend them - I get to do quite a lot of plucking in the run up to Christmas and - yes, we have turkey! Organic lamb, and venison and possibly pork available at times. There is now a campsite on the farm open until end of September see cuckoo farm for more.
