My kowhai tree is coming into bloom - such a shock when I looked out the bathroom window last evening and the tree has a decidedly yellow glow to it. Not much use trying to photograph it today, the wind is perfect for drying washing but not for tree snaps....
So here is a shy little camellia taken when the weather was calmer -
Sunday was a beautiful day, sunny but pretty icy, so I went for a walk with my son along the bank of the Hutt River into Lower Hutt and the Dowse Museum and Cafe Reka - we enjoyed coffee and cake and I was amused by this range of jewellery for sale -
We walked back through the park, passed the fountain that is causing the Council some headaches I believe - whether or not to upgrade
I think I have mentioned that I like words and am something of a pedant - not, I hasten to add that I think I am infallible - but I loved these two signs I saw in two separate supermarkets -
Cut the square into quarters and reverse two of the small squares -
I made one large block for the back, with a few extra fill ins - do you realise I bought these fabrics to make blouses for me.........?
Pinned to the curtain in place of a design wall, and now finished
This evening I am off to the Wellington Quilters meeting where members will be sharing the results of their Symposium and our recent Solstice classes. I have my bag with several quilts from the Shut-in Stitchers so I shall be able to get photos of them, one for the maker and one for our album.
And how's this for encouragement from Teilhard de Chardin, "It is our duty as men and women to proceed as though limits to our ability do not exist."
I like that thought!
Good talking with you
