the long and winding road

sweeping road

takes you far, far away

the roos had left by then

to a place where kangaroos graze alongside woolly sheep

blue window

and you can spend two glorious days

hips and drips

noticing photographing sitting being nurturing listening unwinding

green baby sock for Nina

crafting laughing knitting eating felting talking sewing inspiring

mermaid scarf wip

nourishment for the soul

of course you can knit an apple

a privilege

You have made it sounds so appealing. I hope to find a long and winding road soon too...

Janet said...

wasn't it relaxing!

I popped over when I saw your pics on flickr, could babble on for ever but must go to bed.....

Stomper Girl said...

I hope you're feeling fully recharged.

Sounds like it had the desired effect:)

Badger said...

I've gotta get me some of that.

Ali said...

Wonderful photos and lovely apple. Here's to re-charging.

Frogdancer said...

Sounds fantastic...
I was quilting all weekend so I was with you all in spirit.

Bec said...

Sounds divine! I'm feeling in need of a little spaciousness myself at the moment... LOVE the apple :)

Elizabeth said...

Sigh...sounds so nice.
I wish.

Isabelle said...

Yes, I wish too. I was on holiday but it wasn't quite as relaxing as that sounds. Lovely apple.

Oooh, how fun would it be for a non-aussie to see roos beside the sheep??? What is that pretty red-orange plant? It looks like a tomato, but isn't it the wrong time of year in your hemisphere? Looks like you've been busy with some beautiful knitting!

That all sounds just the ticket.

I have to go now - I need to go back and gaze at the beautiful window and pink ledge!

Gina said...

Sounds wonderful, what gorgeous woollen greenery.

Molly said...

This was nourishing for the eyes too!

It was indeed a wonderful time. Did you knit the apple on the weekend? Disappointed I didn't see it in the flesh - it is so lovely!

divine.

The greeny blues in that scarf(?) are beautiful.

Is there still silence?

meggie said...

Well deserved. Rejuvenation. So necessary.

Sounds like heaven.

You made me feel more relaxed just looking at your pictures.

Stacey said...

How lovely. Sounds just perfect.

Your photographs are divine - I feel I was along for the ride.

( off to look at flickr now - if the rosehips and window are on, i'm faving them for myself :p )

docwitch said...

Stunning photos! And that apple is the best thing I've seen in a long time! Scrumptious colours.

Relaxation and recharging is the name of the game. And knitting.

Kirti said...

Jean said...

It looks so beautiful and peaceful. Your knitting projects are darling.
