This past weekend we went to Hawthbush farm for a few days and had a really nice time. It’s an organic farm in East Sussex that I read about last year when trying to find a shepherds’ hut to stay in. How amazing are their shepherds’ huts? So cozy! I wanted to stay there, but they were all booked up when I inquired. So I decided to plan ahead for a visit there this year. The farm looked so pretty and I also really liked the look of one of their cottages called the cowshed. The amazing light-filled kitchen in the cowshed is one of the reasons we chose it for the upcoming photography workshop I’m helping to host with Beatrice Peltre. I’m glad we were able to make time to stay at Hawthbush Farm this month for a weekend and explore the property and surrounding area, which turned out to be really lovely.
on to getting ready for Easter! I’m frantically trying to finish Lois’s easter dress and do a little Easter decorating. We started an Easter egg tree yesterday, which is looking really cute. I got into bed at midnight last night after working on Lois’s dress for a while and I was a bit frustrated that I might not be able to finish it (I have both girls most of this week, so it’s hard to make time for sewing until night time when they are sleeping). Andrew reminded me to relax and that it should be fun, not stressful. Lois already says she’s NOT going to wear the dress because she doesn’t think it will twirl much (she’s seen her sister’s finished dress), but I’m still going to try to finish and force her to wear it for at least a few pictures!
