hey ho hey ho

Well this week has been a bit of an anti-climax really, it was such a hype getting organised for the Quilt & Craft Show, which was such fun!!  I caught up with Deb, 'n' Darlene, 'n' Michelle, n Miche'le, n Nic.... 'n';ots of others...


 So many great merchant stands, and lots of goodies to show and sell and buy!!! But it is all aver now, and back to real life again, the shop is back together, I have completed one customers quilt top on the quilty machine and another loaded for tommorrow, just need to get organised now for somw BOM's and classes for next year... oh and the website needs a few finishing touches so it can go live at the end  of this month!! YIPPEE...



I've been  struggling just a bit this week with the smallness of Twizel and country life, seems such a change from the weekends hustle and bustle. Anyway, life goes on, and on and things to be done, and ...


So I have made some curtains for our bedroom, Rowing Man has been putting up an old blanket every night to keep us warm,. and the frosty nights out, so we can say goodbye to the blanket now!



And today I finally caught up on the blocks for the Mystery Christmas Block of the month using the fabulous Kate Spain Christmas collection, it is sssooo yummy and fresh and bright!!


... and now I am about to stitch these lovely roses onto my blue cardigan, I found these at the show on Saturday, and decided that they were just the thing to bring a bit of new life into this cardy that has been hanging in my wardrobe, look at the roses on the pocket, aren't they just so gorgeous...



well gotta go do some more something!!

have a fun weekend everyone, I do hope all you in the south of the South Island  are managing to keep warm and dry with all the snow storms that you are having!!

Hey the blue roses worked out really well didn't they. I know what you mean about hustle and bustle. I came back really motivated but that is waning without others to bounce ideas off.
keep warm
hugs

You are such a shop owner now! LOL It must be so exciting to be amongst it all...BOMs, quilt classes, new fabrics. Think I'll have to plan a trip to NZ so I can check out all this activity :) (I wish!)

Look at those mountains.....
Look at that lake........
Even considering how awful mother nature is being to you guys at the moment, I still want to be there.
I'm glad the show went well for you.

I think that "flat" feeling happens to us all when we have been to something exciting. All the build up and then it is over before you know it.
Love the pic of the snow covered mountains and those roses look gorgeous with that cardigan.
