Settling in......

Each year it seems to take a little longer to unpack and settle into the cabin. If the weather is not great we spend some time at Jack's house up the road a piece. This year Jack's house has some new appliances in the kitchen!

The gas stove is wonderful. We have been enjoyed cooking on it on rainy nights. I have set up my office in the downstairs bedroom. The sewing machine, computer and printer live there.

I needed roses on the counter. I love the way they look with the vintage Fenton lamp. The calendar for June finally got printed!

I like to take my pictures and use the templates from Shutter Sisters to make calendars. I will try to be much more organized next year. I was unable to find a direct link while writing this. I shall try later.

A fellow blogger Claudia from Mockingbird Hill Cottage made a rabbit called Maggie. You can read about Claudia's Maggie here. I was enthralled - must have been the Liberty fabric for her dress.....

So off I went to Alicia Paulson's site Posie and my kit for Miss Maggie Rabbit arrived last week. I had to wait for some supplies to arrive so I started her wardrobe. I like the concept of the quality kit. I no longer have the "stash" I used to have so to be able to get everything from one source is a blessing.

The knitted garments are blocked and I shall weave the ends in soon.

I chose the kit with the fabric called Betsy. The dress is cut out and ready to stitch.

Hopefully my Maggie will look like this one!

So, that is all for today! We will go back to the little cabin in the woods and I shall knit and read and look at the lake.

Hope you are having a wonderful week.
