Anzac Weekend saw my friend Donna and I troop off to Pongaroa to have lunch with my sister. We used to visit this tiny village with our parents who had close friends living there for some years. Sounds terrible to say that we have not been back for about 50 years!!! After lunch we drove on out to Akitio Beach where we used to often go while there...the crayfishing was legendary. How easy it is to forget the little dirt roads and how long it takes to drive the hilly winding 30kms to the beach. All worth it in the end and we went back home the alternate easier route. The trips is around an hour and a half one way from home.
The alterations have been moving along nicely, and while I was tripping around, the boys got stuck in and put in some walls and the new kitchen window. I spent the day at friend Catherine's giving her some help on quilting her lovely Round Robin quilt. Cant wait to see the finished article.
In the stitching world, I have finally got this scrappy top together for my grandson's birthday quilt. Now to get the frame on and find a nice border fabric. I'm hoping that there is a chance I will find something nice in my stash, but not counting on it. I'm really happy with the result so far.
There you go my friends. The update in a short version. We will be off to Wellington in three weeks to help Richard & Kea move into their first home! Wow, such a special time for this little family. Marcy is growing at a great rate and is such a beautiful baby...of course! The twin great grandsons are now at home with Mum and doing well. Jayden the smallest is still on low flow oxygen, but both are putting on weight and seem to be thriving.
Take care and will try to come back sooner.
