splish splash!!

Rowing Man and I took a Sunday afternoon stroll yesterday

and we fed these beauties

we wandered down to the Salmon Farm, only an hours walk away in the hot HOT sun!!.... and back again

but we picked up a really nice piece of smoked salmon for tea, and wandered back home again

Over the weekend I worked on this

the local - or what used to be local, school in Outram (where Rowing Man used to have his practice), asked if I could donate one of quilts for their upcoming Twilight Mardi Gras, this coming Saturday evening

so I put this together, and we are delivering it tomorrow, Rowing Man has a meeting in Wellington tomorrow, and his flight leaves from Dunedin - luckily Dunedin airport is relatively close to Outram. Means that I can catch up on town chores 'n' things while he is busy

Enjoy your week!

Are the stitcheries your own design Shiree? They are gorgeous! The school will love you to bits! :D

Shiree, that is a lovely wee quilt and I'm sure it will be well received.
Now Missy, isn't letting you loose for a days shopping in Dunedin a tad dangerous? Have fun and shop till you drop.

Hi Shiree, I have to say that I LOVE that quilt!! You do such gorgeous work!! and the salmon farm...thats where we went when we came down. I think I commented on it in another one of your posts? Do you live near there? Obviously! The water is the most incredible colour....the area feels so desert like in some ways. Very different to living in the city that is for sure!
