A Belated Happy New Year to You Dear Reader
While some of you winter away, we are just back from two glorious weeks camping here in NZ
It was our first camping trip where we stayed put for more than 3 nights.
Blissful kayaking, walking, running, reading, sunning, swimming, playing, chatting, eating and no electricity or even phone coverage. Wondrous...even though that puts me quite behind back in "normal" life!
The area near here is called Golden Bay for obvious reasons.
|Hard to believe this bay hides 850 people in 23 camping bays|
I'll list a few but that said I'm not being too ambitious this quarter since we have a few lovely celebrations in the pipeline: my parents are celebrating their Golden Wedding and we are hosting our eldest's 21st for which we've (perhaps over keenly) decided to build a wood-fired oven and having a few visitors before and after that on top of normal working life.
For Do Good Stitches Cherish bee I have to finish :
The September Reflections Quilt
The January String Quilt (this is optimistic since I may not even have all the blocks in time)
Then there's The Shirt Quilt
Which (already?!) has another section since this photo.
And finally (except there are a few other WiPs not on this quarter's list) our son's 21st quilt. Which is at the stage of a fabric pull and an idea and trial snippets stuck on a piece of paper. I'd show you except this computer's on a super go slow and so I'll save it til next time.
That'll do to start with...Truly if I finish all those it will be completely miraculous!
