A little sewing

I had a little time on Saturday to get to the sewing machine and have nearly finished three rows on the book reading quilt
I hope to get some more done tomorrow.
I did some circle sewing while in NZ, but got the most done in Auckland airport and on the plane
very elegant airport sewing position!!

Now I have another 54 circles to add to the collection.
I found some photos I had taken in NZ, from when I had a walk after dinner
down the end of Woods Avenue, the tide was way out, here Mount Maunganui is in the distance

and I wandered along the waterfront and thru Ferguson Park and saw a little of the sunset

the back through the primary school I went to many moons ago, loved this heron mosaic

and the bollards

I liked this sign, I hope the students are encouraged to read it.

another heron at the front gate...my parents house is four houses down the road. Kind of a fitting sign for our time there coming to a close.
I had better be off and sort some dinner, it is that time of day once again.
Happy sewing.

Your reading quilt is going to be so special, and I am loving your circle quilt! I don’t know why, but there’s just something about circles on quilts that speak to me. NZ looks like a lovely place to visit. Maybe, someday!

Nice that you've got back into some sewing and making good progress too by the looks. Your circles are stunning well done!! I love the inspirational things there at the primary school - they are done very tastefully! Bet the wander through the school brought back lots of memories!
