Friday night stitch in and Saturday boating

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!!

Your photos remind me that in only a few short months we'll have our boat back on the water. Doc can hardly wait! Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. :)

Wow, it's amazing how much you get up too. We must try and get you back into the work force some how. We have to slow you down before you burst. LOL

Love your blocks and I'm looking forward to seeing them made into a quilt. What a beautiful lake, perfect for a day out and the water is like glass!
