Work In Progress

Welcome to my first blog post here at Rowan Tree Cottage. Google Photos app is still trying to take all the pics from the iPad. We have been at the cottage for a year now so making things has been on a back burner while we tamed the garden and adapted to living in the forest.

I hope to share the forest with you, some gallivanting about the area, a bit of history where I can, the garden and things I am making, in future posts.

To old friends: welcome, have a cup of tea and a slice of cake or some home made lemonade as the sun is shining, and we will have a natter here throughout the year.

    1. That is so sweet Suzie. I was juggling too much to get something sorted before, but after a year in the cottage it was more than time to get back into the swing of things. I have missed Blogland: seeing what people are making, and giving and receiving encouragement.

  3. Melanie, So wonderful to have you blogging again! I am a bad blogger these day, doing art full time I am on face book a lot to sell my work. I still blog at the same spot, but not much anymore. I can't wait to hear and see more about the forest and of course your wonderful makings. xoxo
