I managed to pick up a cold on the last trip and still have the wooly brain and lethargy, hence not a lot has happened here this week. I have been working away on the little hexies and am half way, I need to get a zip along as March is fast zipping away.
I am happy with these hexies, only a couple of wobbles with the fussy cutting and so far only two lots of unsewing!
While in Tauranga hubby worked and worked and then went on strike!!
He chose a good place!!
and didn't want to move
Charles the neighbour offered commiserations!! Charles was great, he emptied out the compost bin for us while we filled the skip. It was sad to throw some things out, but some things were old and no one wanted then, so out they went. We had one day until settlement at this stage, so throw out was the only option.
I found these flowers in Mum's garden, no idea what they are
but they are stunning flowers that come from a pretty ordinary bulb.
I think this is a kind of orchid which grows like a weed there.
the last two nights we stayed with the neighbours...no beds left next door!
They had swan plants in their garden, but no caterpillars, so I went out for a look and found four munching away.
I hope the paper wasps stay away and they get to be butterflies. I spent hours in the garden as a kid watching these caterpillars eat and grow, change into a chrysalis and then a butterfly.
Today is a day of NO paperwork (I hope) so I hope to reintroduce myself to the sewing machine and soon I am for for a 70th birthday lunch.
