Well I may not be blogging much but there has been activity in Herbert over the summer.
Dodging the rain clouds to get the outside of the house painted. Husband and daughter have been chief decorators.
Dusty work sanding.
It's only a small house but the work seems endless... And there's still the three bay old wooden garage to do...fortunately under the peeling paint the rimu boards are in great condition.

One member of the family can't stand the noise.
There has been lots of dyeing when the weather permitted.

And weaving.

In my small studio some dressing of the loom.
As our daughter is home from Wellington for the holidays we have also had a few days relaxing and going out.
Mostly spent in the locality. Not often we get time to just wander around in our own town.
The view is from the third floor of the old Loan and Mercantile building by the harbour.

You truly live in such a beautiful place Doe. I am under 20 centimetres of snow right now and it really sucks! The cold has been especially brutal this winter also with minus 35C windchills. My Alpaca handknits are getting a good workout.
Keep those fairytale land photos coming :-))

Ditto to the photo comments. They are stunning!

Can't wait to see what lovely colours you have come up with this time!

Yes I sometimes take the views for granted. North Otago is a beautiful place to live. I love the big sky.
