I've been busy

The last week was mostly spent in Wellington with the family. A couple of months ago I got some cheap grabaseat airfares for this week from Wanganui to Wellington return so I flew down on Monday morning and back on Wednesday night. Caught up on office work thursday and friday morning, and spent some of friday afternoon doing messages in town, preparing for our upcoming trip to the northern hemisphere (passport photos, international drivers licence, gift shopping, etc). Then on Saturday we drove back to Wellington so that Terry could buy shoes at the Shoe Clinic in Lower Hutt! Spent more time with the family and drove back the same day. Here is a photo of Terry, Aimee and Jess building towers on the quilt I bought a few weeks ago which we took down for Sarah and Chris to use on their bed - just until Sarah gets her large quilt made....

I had a great day, finally getting some quilting done - and I had company too! This photo is of Helen using my Swiftquilter and Juki today - making very short work of a single quilt and picking up the techniques very easily. Of course, she was with me the day we had a lesson from Jill in Waikanae. Just look at the glee on her face as she gets started!

The day ended very nicely with a bottle of pinot gris, roast chicken and good friends. Robert and I (we were the ones drinking the wine) won 2 out of 3 games of crib. Maybe it just pays to relax a little!

Was that the part when I quilted the leader fabric to the quilt?? :-)
