Janie in her Christmas Swap Dress
In other news, there has been a lot of quiet on the blog lately because I have had no sewing time! I have been spending every free minute making my duck run completely covered in hardware cloth and with no gaps greater than 1/2" in diameter. There was an incident involving a mink (during the day, while we were home) that I am still not feeling up to discussing. There are seven remaining ducks and the chickens have been on lock-down inside their coop with only supervised run time since Dec. 14 when it happened. A completely mink/weasel proof chicken run is in the works for the spring, but until then we are making do with what we have and being very careful. I cannot catch the mink in my havahart but I'm still trying. It has been a bad year for predators around here.
