Hi , thanks for coming to Highway Cottage for a look at our world.
We moved here from the city just over 6 years ago. Our intention was to gain more space and perhaps grow some of our own food. Over time our goals have changed a bit, to gain more space one day, and grow as much as we can. At the moment we grow our own beef and lamb, and occasionally pigs, have our own hens for eggs and have some young fruit trees and are working on the ever expanding garden. Its a very big learning curve as neither DH or I come from farming background. We have had some funny experiences with the animals, and some hair-raising ones with the weather too – like when we lost two huge gum trees onto the main highway and had to call out the fire brigade to clear the road. So keep reading, and have a laugh along with us.
This blog is also a record of my crafting experiences. Most of which are quilting, but the occasional sewing of clothing, toys, cloth nappies and even a wee bit of felting here and there. I have also opened an online shop, Sew Vivid, to sell my handcrafts. I am very happy to custom make quilts or other hand sewn gifts, just send me an email. You’ll find the link on the sidebar.
