I'm sure the sun will come soon.Hugs
Yes, winter has stayed for too long here this year. Actually, today is the first day, when the snow has started melting, so it is all slush around. Let’s hope, the sun will come soon.
Dear Kay, as for sawdust, I usually buy it in pet shops. There, it is sold clean and pre-treated against possible development of mould and fungi. A pack generally has numerous inclusions of larger chips; so, before I proceed to stuffing, I carefully examine all the sawdust, sort it out and remove these larger things.
