Country crafting

We're getting used to living in the country. It's taken a while, but gradually the heap of boxes has receded and we can see the windows again.

We're spending some time indoors and a lot of time out there, exploring this new place. Kookaburras in that tree, incredible mushrooms over there. Cold mornings, frosts and quickly lighting the fire in your jammies, then sunny afternoons and quick dark to night. Stars. Mist.

Why didn't we do this earlier?

I've unearthed the sewing machine, and with all this cold wind and with mornings and evenings on the train, I think there's going to be some crochet happening. We'll see.

I can feel the cold in the long shadows. Definitely time to put your feet up and have a hot chocolate. Love the window details. Cherrie

Squeeee! It looks beautiful. My idea of heaven is a wood fire in a country cottage! I'm glad to hear the move went well, and that you've found the computer and the sewing machine ;)
