We are done

The house in Tauranga is as clean as it is going to get and so it is now in the hands of a repair man for a few days and then the estate agent. Here is hoping for a quick sale!! Not much sewing has been happening as by the time I have been sitting down I am too tired to do much, but a few more circles have been done
A few more to add to the collection
Saturday we drove over to Tirau to have lunch with the lovely Julie, we met at a cafe there, had lunch and a big chat and put the world to rights!! Thank you Julie for driving over to meet up with us, it was wonderful to catch up again. Julie also agreed to take some of my Mums crystal and doilies, so I packed up a box and now the bits have a new home. It is so nice to know those things will be enjoyed and not just taken to the op shop.

Hubby and a wall hanging I liked.

On Sunday, it rained all the way to Auckland seeing the green countryside though

Jenny has two swan plants outside the dining room, and there are the caterpillars of the monarch butterfly on them, this one in the photo has been eating non stop since we got here. They are so interesting to watch, and grow so fast....I am sure these plants will have no leaves before too long.
It is time to turn in now....hopfully tomorrow I will get to sit and sew.
Happy stitching.

Hi Sue .... was so lovely to catch up again & to meet David also. Thanks so much for the box of goodies .... I was like a kid at christmas going through all those lovely doilies ... am now soaking some in a bucket. Yes we are still getting rain here but things have definately greened up. Safe travels home Xxx

I guess the silver lining to your visit was to see Julie! Great you have the house sorted, I'm sure it will sell quick.

You work so hard! The dircles look great.

Love your circles. Such a relief now you have finished the big clean up. I bet you were so happy to be able to relax and catch up with Julie and Jenny.

Wow it's been a huge effort to get the house ready for listing Sue... I hope it sells quickly... that would be a good thing to happen.
Great circles there too!

Well done on the efforts with the've worked hard and it must have been stressful at times. How cool you got to spend time with Julie again :-) I was thinking that the photo looked like NZ countryside! Your circles are looking good - nice to see them all laid out like that.

Sounds like a huge job Sue (the house).

Loving your circles! Labour of love. x
