Well, we are back at home, kids are back at school and preschool, and I am, yet again, trying to meet a deadline. There is a postcard exhibition on at an Art Gallery over summer, and I have to have it done and submitted by Friday (thats 3 days..again...people). Trying some new stuff, and it looks good so far, so ahead we will forge.
We had a lovely few days in Taranaki. It was great to catch up with Belinda and Todd. 3 days was just about enough for the kids to be together. I enjoyed the drive down there (6 hrs), along with the inevitable "are we there yet"! And those started before we hit the Bombay Hills ( 20 mins! LOL). The kids loved the 'farm' life. Feeding the lambs and chooks etc, I even sent them all off wandering one afternoon, something that would NEVER happen at home. We took a trip into New Plymouth one day, roller skating another. Wow, that bought back memories, I was quite the roller skater in my day, so I strapped some on, did one lap, and that was enough for me. 17 years since I have been skating. Although I am only 35, i was worried about breaking a hip!!
Here's the proof ...please take special note that I am a)on my feet, and b)not holding onto anything. This is the only full body shot you will get of me on my blog. I am for reading, not for viewing...lol
Finally, I did get some stitching done. Todd was on early milkings so Belinda and I pretty much had the evenings to ourselves, we stitched and chatted. I also worked on some stockings.
I am away at a National meeting this weekend for Playcentre , so should have more to show next week. I haven't been to this particular meeting before so I hope I have as much time to stitch as I do at the Education ones.
I have had a feeling in my 'waters' for a couple of days...I let you know if, and when something momentous happens....
