Just perfect temperature and weather today. As I had been sewing ( still working on the scrap blocks; have finished 8 now) I decided to get my exercise at 4 pm by going up to the Quarry Park behind our house and walking the high path. It is quite a climb but today the view was so clear, right across the Bay towards Mt.Maunganui. I took my camera to get these shots.
Quilting is a wonderful hobby for me. I love the beautiful fabric and colours - my artistic side comes alive.
I have lived in Te Puna near Tauranga since 1978, where my husband ( R ) and I own a small orchard where we grow Kiwifruit and Avocados for export. We have a large garden and grow many other fruit, nuts and vegetables. When I was young I was a teacher and particularly liked teaching art. I have also worked in the Kiwifruit Industry in Quality Control and Auditing. I love to create and am currently passionate about patchwork and quilting. I sew by hand and using my Bernina Aurora 440 machine.
