Strangers on the shore

One evening last week Phil came across these three enjoying the sunset from Petone beach, they agreed to be photographed.

It's been a while since I posted anything, and I must be honest - it's either doing this or the vacuuming! I seem to have mislaid my energy; I went for a check up with the doctor last week and when he greeted me with, "What can I do for you?", I told him I wanted the body I had in 1987!  

I'm trying to reorganise my sewing room which means that right now it's a great big mess!  The trouble started when I wanted to see what was in the plastic containers in the corner between the cupboard and set of open shelves.  I pulled everything out, found all sorts of treasures, and decided to move the cupboard right into the corner and put the containers in the gap between the two cupboards. 

This is the left hand cupboard with the three top shelves nicely tidied, muddle on the next two and the remains of dressmaking fabric at the bottom.

This is the right hand cupboard, there are two empty shelves above the muddled one, then another with a plastic container on it - full of five inch squares, then more dressmaking fabric on the bottom.  I've since emptied one more shelf and am out of space to put the neatly folded fabric but I think the cupboard is now light enough to be pushed along.  When my friends come to stitch on Tuesday I'll find out!

On the design wall are two small pieces, the left overs from the last sort of jelly roll plus white top I made,

This is from a portion of the top that has the two coloured strips with a thinner white between, and the other one

I think has possibilities because if you squint at it you can see the pattern of the seventies fence I once shared.......

"Pete's Dragon", the film Phil worked on down south last year, is due for release in August - that's one I'm definitely looking forward to.  I recently had the opportunity to view a pre-release screening of "Hail Caesar" - if you're into films, this is a must.  The Coen brothers certainly know their stuff.  

I'll leave you with this Phil/selfie - sort of - 

which I find fascinating - what force was needed to produce those rocks? and with the thought from Confucius, "Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses."

Thanks for reading my blog,
