Saturday was a busy, busy family day. First off a trip to The Country Yard (background blocks for My Tweets all under control plus sashing for the Row by Row round robin) - then a quick jaunt cross country to Matakohe to visit the Kauri Museum where the Otamatea quilters were holding their exhibition. While I wandered and oohed and ahhed, the kids and husband walked around the amazing museum displays - incredible amount of work on show by everyone from both areas! Then a circular trip home via Dargaville, Waipoua, Opononi, Kaikohe... and home. Tired but a good day out. Now if you don't know where any of those places are... check a map - it was a real adventure which took 10 1/2 hours.
Sunday has been a rainy stay at home day. Rain and more rain... very dreary. Kids have been... irritating.
|When the rain slowed to a drizzle, it was time to go|
and check the chickens
|But worth our while with five eggs.|
I have been taking a break from FMQ...
|So far so good... or at least, it will do.|
... and have been preparing my shapes for the next block on My Whimsical Quilt Garden scrap quilt.
|Just the petals to do on the second flower... then ready to|
attach to a cream background - very striking on my dark
desk though isn't it?
