Walking not sewing

Hi everyone

I am starting to see the number of unpacked boxes reduce, but it will be a little longer before they are all unpacked I am sure.

I have managed to set up my sewing machine and serger, and did do a tiny utility type project on Wednesday night, but that was it really.

Friday my daughter and granddaughter, Dad and Bentley all arrived to spend the weekend with us, and we just had to take Bentley and Lilly for a lovely walk.

As you can see from the pictures here, I am loving my new home.  I was greeted by the most beautiful sunrise Friday morning - the photo was taken from my bedroom window.  Later in the afternoon we took Bentley for a walk along the river - even Lilly enjoyed her time on the beach.

My D Mike was testing out his new toy and managed to get the lawn cut between rain showers.

This morning was one of those glorious sunny days that meant we had to go for another walk.  This time it was just my D Mike and Bentley, who by the way thinks he is on his holidays every time he comes.  This is all at the bottom of our garden and is a bird and wildlife haven.

I am starting to get sewing withdrawal symptoms now and I'll not be back to do any sewing until Thursday evening but I'll only have until Sunday morning to do any quick sewing before my D Mike and I take our long-awaited honeymoon.

I hope you enjoy my pictures and are having fun sewing.

Catch you later..................

  5. Oh wow Pauline. Looks heavenly. I live beside a huge lake in a farming community with corn fields, strawberry fields, etc. There are paths in the woods where we love to walk and I always take my grandchildren on little excursions and picnics. I know how you are feeling about your new home. Enjoy!
