The long weekend is over and we are moving again. This time from the Cow House back to my own home. Things are not yet finished but we are able to move some things in and try and get our lives back into some kind of order again. It will not happen over night and there are lots of things that have to be finished. I still have to get the furniture over here and I'm sure there are going to be lots of argument between my husband and myself regarding the styling of the house. (I am girding my loins for that battle.) I have ordered a new leather lounge and arm chairs. ( Mine is going to be grey.) But , they will not arrive until mid June.
So how did my weekend away go? Fantastic. We set up our sewing machines in the school library and had a sew-fest. They even had a cow in the library just so that I would feel at home. She had a very sweet face
and is used to teach the children about healthy bones.
It is a lovely school. Well cared for and it looks like a good learning environment. Up on the downs autumn is well under way. It wasn't cold but there was a chill in the morning and evening air. Every one is hoping for rain and in the evening the storm clouds gather, but no rain. Just a morning fog.
In the garden the plants are starting to set seed. Winter will probably come with a rush.
I got most of the quilt top finished for Jasmine's new quilt. I made the mistake of ringing home and got some bad news. I then lost concentration and made quite a bit of reverse sewing for myself. Hopefully I will have the quilt all laid-up and pinned ready for quilting by the end of this week. Watch this space.
