I’m so pleased to have finished the cardigan for my granddaughter! I actually finished it a few days ago, on Saturday, but have not had a chance to do a post until now. The cardigan has been delivered, and was very happily received. She tried it on straight away and it fits really well. Job… Continue reading It’s Finished!
As you can see, I’ve finished my little cross stitch, so that's one down of my many projects. I actually finished it on Saturday evening, but needed to get organised to get a photo taken. I still need to find a frame for it. This project was small and straight forward, and I found it… Continue reading One Down, Still Many To Go!
So, yesterday (June 21st) was the shortest day here, and we are nearly halfway through the year. How did that happen! I have had a lot going on since we returned from our trip around the South Island. On my first day back at work I received a text from someone I had caught up… Continue reading Bits And Pieces
It is always hard saying goodbye to your children and their families. All too soon it was time to start heading home. It was a little easier for me this time, though, as I knew I would be back down in six weeks. We headed north through Dunedin and stopped for a lovely leisurely lunch… Continue reading South Island Trip (the final leg) – Heading Home
We have just had a long weekend here to celebrate Queen’s Birthday, and I had all sorts of plans for getting lots of things done. Even although Monday was a holiday, my husband was working all day. I was looking forward to getting stuck in and making some progress with some crafts and some posts.… Continue reading A Little Bit Of Progress
Gosh, it’s now over a month since we got back from our South Island trip! No wonder I’m struggling a bit to remember what I need to write down. To be fair, there has been, and continues to be, quite a lot going on. The most important thing hanging over me at the moment is… Continue reading South Island Trip (part two)
My apologies for not having finished telling you about our South Island trip yet. Life has become a little complicated and I have had something important to deal with. I hope to be able to tell you about it soon. In the meantime I thought I would write this short post to update you on… Continue reading Bedtime Socks Revisited
You may have noticed that I have been very quiet for the last three weeks. We were lucky enough to get away for a two week road trip around our lovely South Island. I can’t believe that it is actually a whole week since we got back! While we were away we often had limited… Continue reading South Island Trip (part one)
A lot has happened this week. Daylight saving finished last weekend. I finished all the socks I’ve been making on Sunday and took photos on Monday so I could write my post. The rest of the week seemed to just disappear in all the general rushing around associated with the last week of term! So… Continue reading Bedtime Socks
Wow! So a quarter of the year is now gone, and we are two days down in April already. I took the photo at the top on the 17th of February, the day before I sent another trio of little Octopals away. That means it has taken me just over six weeks to finally get… Continue reading Another Trio Swam Away
