Around Home and My Creative Space

A few random images from home this morning - with my Mother's Day flowers of course!








Sharing the view from my blogging space... my crafty and creating space.
Sitting at the laptop and looking across the tables... this is what I see.
I have changed this room space so many times and it has never been quite right.
 I think I have done it now - it feels right and this time I have a view when I sit at the 'laptop' end.

I flung the shutters wide open this morning, the sky was blue and everything looked so green.



My beloved Tropical Birch Tree in the centre, is just about to shed it's leaves.
I love the way deciduous trees shed their leaves and create a stark austere silhouette.
Then they burst into new growth when Spring is around the corner.


If I walk over to the window this is what I see as I look down.

I must finish my quilt...

I think I may have said before what a beautiful house you have, Pam. All clean and neat, with a lush garden and beautiful flowers.

And now! I spy an overlocker! Don't you love them? Mine is like a fifth child to me.

Oh Pam, I would love to grab that pile of books (and a cuppa) and curl up in that chair for a read! It looks so inviting! I love that fabric you have on the cushions too. I am very envious of your view from your sewing table! Your garden looks amazing! X
