The light here is so amazing at the moment. Before we moved here, we mentally prepared ourselves for a few months of serious cold and daytime darkness. But, apart from the first week we were here, most days have been clear and bright. This is at about 11am, in our garden. It's light and sunny, but the quality of light is different to that in NZ. Inside, it's really hard to take photos of the things I've been working on- everything has a sort of white glow. So I'll use that as my excuse for not showing any of my finished crafting.
I have been doing some very slow knitting on this brown hat, having continuous small failures with the things I've been trying to sew, and 'wasting' time watching numerous vintage Kate Bush videos on youtube. She's just so good.
In the evenings, I've been trying a bit of wool embroidery, using these beautiful dyed skeins given to me last year by Caireen, stitching onto a store-bought black scarf. I hope to take a clear photo of that soon. It's a surprisingly calming and enjoyable way to spend the evening.
And Arlo and Keira's project: collecting pine cones that drop onto the driveway.
