I took part in Heidi's Friday night sew-in with 194 others - what a wonderful way to spend an evening,
got this pile put together, this started life as a jelly roll,
so that is most of the piecing done, need to think about sashings and a border and what else I might do with these, I have a few ideas - well one
Saturday saw us heading out on Lake Benmore with friends,
with another magnificent view of Mt Cook behind us
we found a perfect picnic site, ate lunch, read books, chatted, had afternoon tea, cake....
this is the movie set that was started for a movie (construction abruptly stopped 12mths ago), about the life of Jesus, Lake Benmore was to be the sea of Galilee, and this was to be the house of Caiaphas, one of 2 high priests at the time of the trial of Jesus. The movie never came to much as they ran out of funding apparently, but the set, thus far, remains as you see it above.
we played about with the boat a bit more,
and lolled about in the glorious sunshine
what a day!!
hope your weekend was fun and everything you wanted it to be!!
