The View From My Sewing Room Window

A group I am on Squilters  asked the question what can you see from your sewing room window, well this is my view.511

I look up to the front gate. there is a school across the road and a housing estae beyond . When we moved here 12 yrs ago it was a cow paddock looking up to Wongawallen. I have another window on the other side so its nice and light and airy, very pleasant to sew in. I can see if anyone is coming and what the dogs are up to.
