Update 2010

Kia-ora --that's hi hello how are you -- welcome to my blog-- The last time I wrote I am ashamed to say was 2009 -- time goes by --- Christmas came and went  we had a great  time staying with my sister in Auckland between Christmas and early New Year   and just rested -- chatted--ate -- drank wine --walked the dogs --my sister has two and I have  Blaze  -- as you can see the dogs enjoyed their xmas pressies.--- we visited friends who also have dogs --on that day there were 5 and two of them are Briards --they are not small dogs --it was great to see them all socialize and have doggie fun. We drove  to Auckland   --well I drove as my DH does not see well enough to drive any more-- and back  home   what a joy most of the roads are to travel on.
Again in March we drove up to Auckland this time for my stepbrothers 50th wedding anniversary and we had a great day catching up with relatives --nephews and their children.Staying again with my sister --- this time we were out most days -- shopping visiting-- shopping -- do you get the idea.
 On the sewing front I have made two quilts one is finished the other is ready to be batted up and quilted ---and   have  been doing a online embroidery class with Sharon Boggin--Sumptuous Surfaces   and have I enjoyed this --  I will add some pictures if I remember how shortly.I really need to learn more indepth embroidery stitches! Maybe another class --?? Okay so no pictures of my quilts must remember to take some
The first  stitching is  a Sea scene -- Kelp  --shells-- seagulls and the sun.
 Work in progress

Finished scene
