Hi everyone / anyone
I've more or less stumbled on this site to-day and have spent most of the day going through topics and forums whan I should have been working, have found it very absorbing so decided to join.
I live in one of the most beautiful county's in the UK - Cornwall, although I'm not Cornish, originally from the northern shores of North London, Harrow.
For my sins I'm a spinner and weaver, but in a previous life I've been a professional dog trainer, running six dog training centres at one point.
Before moving to Cornwall, I owned a smallholding with my husband where we bred rare breed sheep, pigs, had normal chickens, 4 goats and bees. With the sheep came the natural evolution into spinning and dyeing nad then headlong into weaving.
We now run some rare breed poultry - Buff Orpingtons, traditional breeds - Light Sussex & Welsummers and then crosses, some Alyesbury ducks and a Canuaga duck and drake, keeping this lot in order is my faithful Border Collie Taffy and then running general riot are his sons Pippin and Smeagol
I'm looking forward to being part of the site and getting to know you all
Audrey

Thank you for the welcomes
Intrigued, Toggle, I can only think of one maybe two ladies from Guild that would be members on here, or perchance your not a lady?

Sorry Toggle, I reckon she's about as much of a lady as I am.
