We are getting settled in the High Desert of Central Oregon
surrounded by the Cascades and Smith Rock state park.
What a splendid view.
|3 Sisters to the West|
|Mount Hood farther to the North|
|Mt Jefferson, fairly close to the northwest|
|Smith Rock State Park to the North|
All of these pictures were taken from our den on the
second story. It has windows all around and it fantastic to stitch there
|Pond dogs, extremely HAPPY|
|swimming in irrigation pond|
Most of the reason we moved here in the country was to
give the dogs a place to run free
. We still have to watch them closely so
they don't go through the fence and chase chickens, horses etc.
We are getting the fences mended bit by bit but it is a long way around.
|Neighbors quarter horse|
I love to wash the dishes and look at the horses while I am doing this.
|One of our deer|
|Momma and baby robins|
They are starting to get big. We can watch them closely when we sit out
on the back deck. I stitched there a long time the other day and
it is super enjoyable, peaceful!!!
|more deer in the backyard|
|clearing brush for fire prevention|
|Lower back yard by pond, just gorgeous|
This is more up by the house. Obviously the property is why we moved here!
|Progress on "A Forest Grew" from Rosewood manor, nearly finished!!!|
|Big Red Beast coming along, I have Angels and maybe one or 2 borders to go|
|Chullo hat I am making for my friend Kim... a Knit Picks kit|
I think I will spend more time on stitching this summer when it gets hot.
In the fall I plan on teaching at a new local yarnshop:
We will have some classes on Norwegian knitting which I LOVE
I am finding Spinning and Fiber group and am so happy we moved here.
I won't mind the snow in winter either, I'm from Duluth!! I feel like
God Bless America, from the prairie to the ocean to the mountains!!!!
