Things have really moved along quickly on Ballymurrin lately. Mr. Comfortable has been spending his days outside working hard to finish Ballymurrin Quacker Farmstead while the weather is still warm. The cabin is done. Now it’s time to finish the Ballymurrin Play Area!

For the longest time we made very little progress on the duck cabin but now things are really moving! We’ve got all the material to finish construction and everything is in place to complete this project! And now the duck cabin has a floor!

Serious Construction on the Duck Cabin

The original video that inspired the duck cabin has disappeared from the internet. I didn’t think that was even possible! But in spite of this little setback we’ve begun serious construction on the duck cabin!

Progress on the Duck Cabin

It’s been fascinating to watch the duck cabin start to come into existence. Mr. Comfortable has moved from cutting logs for the walls to building the frame for the cabin. I finally feel we’re making progress on the duck cabin!

Raising Rabbits for Meat

When my sons were kids they raised rabbits, mostly for showing. Yes, there are rabbit shows just as there are dog shows. The boys’ primary breed was Mini Rex and they did incredibly well. They were first in the country in their breed. But their secondary breed, which they showed mainly at our county fair, was New Zealand (whites) and those are the rabbits I’ve chosen for my next project; raising rabbits for meat.Raising rabbits for meat is a great way to provide for your family!

Learning to Sew Part III

I’ve been so excited since my sewing machine arrived that it’s been hard to sleep. Seriously. I’ve been that excited about learning to sew! My tutor was supposed to come on Friday to show me how to get started but there was a glitch so Learning to Sew Part III got pushed back.

Sewing is a really useful skill to learn!
