I can’t believe it’s been over a month! Spring is defintely here in Cobble Hill. John, Ben and I have been working hard in the garden – planting beds, putting in a veggie patch and endlessly mowing the lawn. John and I were talking today about how absolutely content we feel out here. Our only regret is that we didn’t moveout here sooner. We’ve met some really great people and are starting to feel part of the community. I’m such a ‘putter’ person and living on some land, in the country raising litle ones is my putter heaven!
The dolls are doing well. I just finished up 6 new dolls for Natural Pod. They aren’t posted yet, Bridgitte is at a confrence this weekend and I thought it’d be better to post them after it’s done. I go and pick up 20 pounds of wool on Saturday from Westcott Farms. It’s a local farm that raises their sheep organically. These sheep have a great life, they are so loved. If I ever come back as a sheep, I want to live here! Anyways, I am happy to have found this place. I am really trying to make a product that is sustainable, natural and local. I’ve also decided to only make my baby blanket dolls using organic materials. I always thought I was fairly aware and holistic, but living here just amplifies my decisions to be as environmentally consious as possible. The surrounds here are so beautiful, the people here are so aware and having all these farms around, many of which grow organic food really puts awarness in your face. All this and maybe because I’m pregnant, that always seems to put things in perspective.
My parents are coming to visit this weekend. We are all looking forward to seeing them. I’m taking them to something called ‘Kids and Apple Pie’, it’s a fair in Cobble Hill. I’ll keep you posted on how that goes, apparently there is a good silent auction.
