A couple of months ago it was away down the road, they repaired that and another one sprang a little higher up the road, so they came back and fixed that, then there was another one...... I think we are up to the fifth one now.
maybe they should just replace the whole lot!!? LOL
While I was taking their picture, I remembered that I had wanted to get a pic of the big magnolia tree over the road. I have always loved magnolias and love to see them here around my new home.
They are all so much bigger than any I saw on the Isle of Man.
Still with me?
Your reward is to see my new stash.
Yesterday we had to go up to Christchurch.
Tony had to visit a certain store to be fitted for a best man suit.
I have visited the store before, (last picture in this post), way back in 2009. It hasn't changed. Oh, there are new patterns and new items on display, but it is still an Aladdin's cave of quilty goodness. :-)
As you can see I treated myself to some kiwiana charms and jelly slices and a sweet kit.
The washing machine is all finished, so I'm off to the washing line.
I have to say after years of apartment living, it's wonderful to have a washing line again. :-)
Yesterdays progress is todays finish! I don't usually sit down to stitch until after lunch, but today my Geisha was shouting very loudly, so I bent my own rules. "Oriental Lady, Beauty" by Joan Elliott. Featured in the book A Cross Stitcher's Oriental Odyssey. Kit produced by Design Works Crafts Inc. (The website I purchased the kit from also called her Spring Geisha, but I have found no other reference to that title.) She is a little untidy as I didn't rinse and press her yet. Forgive me, I'm eager to share.
I'm off to dance happily, while I do a few chores before stash diving for my next project.
