They spend hours everyday patiently sewing things by hand for their little dream home. They have made curtains, pillows, a rug, and right now they're working on a quilt. Where they acquired the patience for all that is beyond me. I used to abhor sewing things by hand when I was a little girl and still don't enjoy it at all.
Sailor has been building some things for it as well. A bookshelf was a welcome addition and today he rigged up a doorbell for them.
I love the setting for their little house. Tucked under our beautiful pine trees and a wall of grapevines.
There is a very pleasant area under the trees where they also enjoy playing. They have a clothes line and several small gardens made with rocks and pine cones. An ancient outhouse turned to a tool shed works as their barn.
Birds chirped among the branches outside the little curtained window as we ate a picnic lunch together.
There are days like today when I think it would be really fun to be ten years old again.
