It was great to catch up with all my family and friends! The weather was a little chillier than I am now used to, but Wellington did put up 2 really beautiful days for me. I had bought plenty of warm clothes to wear so it wasnt too bad.
These two photos were taken at Island Bay. I did take them from the warmth of my sisters car but it was still beautiful....and not a high rise building in sight!
I gave the "tree quilt" to my parents for their anniversary and the "beach" quilt went to my sister, Jolanda.
Today I was straight back into the swing of things! We took a group of elderly from Chinatown to "Quilts and Friends" - one of our local quilt shops for morning tea. They really enjoyed the trip and were even given a small quilting project to take home with them. One of the uncles even bought some bright colourful fabric for a new shirt....maybe I could teach him how to sew it himself! A big thank you to "Quilts and Friends" for a lovely morning and putting a smile on the aunties and uncles faces!
Well thats all from me - my eyes are starting to droop. I guess thats what you get when you are wide awake at 4am. Isn't jetlag great!
