First snow.....winter crafting starts

Today was the first covering of The Mountain with snow, I only noticed it on the way out of the house so missed getting a photo of it. I felt that first real chill of the season as soon as I woke & the heater was on for the breakfast session (porridge all around with Tim away for work). Max got to wear his 'new' coat on the walk to 'school' and was most excited about the arrival of snow. This winter's thrifted coat is super toasty, super plaid & has the all important hood (Max can't stand the wind!)


Max was sooooo excited that a bunny had been to 'school' & given him his first Easter egg...."it's Chocolate mum....from a rabbit". We had it for afternoon tea and now they know what they are, I dread taking them to the supermarket!


With the cold keeping us from venturing too far after 'school' pick up I launched into making the kids an indoor cubby. This is one of those projects that grew from throwing an old sheet over the dining table (for some sanity) to a fully fledged craft project with requests for all sorts of 'renovations'. So far we have windows & the start of a garden, on the list of requests are: doors, a door bell, a letter box, a veggie garden with peas to pick (???), a deck (what have I started), a round window, and a chimney. They have much more faith in my sewing abilities than I do!

There were of course a few head knocks but they stayed in there most of the afternoon....and the table is already cleared for dinner....what a novelty.

I saw one of those tablecloths on the net somewhere once, and saved an image of it. I thought it was a great idea. I love your windows.
