So I thought I'd give you a quick run down of whats been happening before I start regularly blogging again.
We spent almost the whole of April packing and moving books to the new house, I spent my weekends in the new garden trying to tame the jungle before we moved in.
You might recognise the old NDS dye baths which have started a new life in the garden, firstly as weeding buckets, then used for bonfire containers and soon to be used for planting veggies
We moved on the first of May
Since then we have been working hard to turn our new house into a home.
I am so happy its the first place we've lived in since 2010 when we lost our house that I truly feel is home, it needs completely redecorating, the owners are self employed and are so busy they didn't have the time to decorate, but that's ok because we can make it ours.
Phil has been decorating, he's almost finished the lounge, only another 7 rooms + 2 staircases/landings to do :-)
My favourite room is on the top floor, its not really a room more of a large area on the landing, its become my library and the view from the windows are stunning, The light is beautiful and I spend quite a lot of time surrounded by my books gazing at the garden.
The view from my studio isn't bad either.
My passion is the garden, I spend every spare moment I can enjoying the challenge of making it beautiful. The view from the top terrace is phenomenal, I can see the mountains of South Wales across the Bristol Channel and on a clear day you can even see wind farms up in the hills behind Swansea.
But don't worry I have been crocheting too, I've managed to finish 3 blanket wip's, now all 3 are ready to have their patterns written and be published.
The first one is Zigzag, I'm working on the pattern at the moment, the even better news is that I am working with Deramores to produce a kit.
The second two are Cote de Lynmouth and Marsh Violet, but lots more about them later.
