Encouraging Comments.

I am pleased with how my apple quilt is looking but it makes it an even better feeling when other kind bloggers encourage and appreciate too. Thanks ! I am enjoying more and more great blogs of folk making fabulous quilts and fabric creations...The only down side is it all adds to the "Ooh, I'd like to try something like that," file in my brain ( and sometimes on paper) I really will have to live to be 200 years old. ( great to feel like that tho ) It also means I spend ages at the computer......I enjoy it!
For Deb I have inserted an Aubergine photo...Sometimes called egg plant ( though only for the shape I think) They need a long hot summer to ripen.
Early yesterday morning I did one of my long walks 6.5kms, down the peninsula to the sea. R then kindly collects me in the car as walking back is too far and I get sore feet. It takes me an hour if I go for it and don't stop and take photos. The tide was right out exposing the mud and silt flats. I like it best when the tide is in. It is a very quiet peaceful place with only a handful of houses...No shops, so it stays relatively unspoiled. When I get back I am really ready for my breakfast, which is avocado ( home grown ) on vegemite( no other spread ) on vogels toast, with a glass of soya milk and a long black espresso.

Ali, almost my entire arts community is online, so I understand how you feel about the encourgement of other bloggers. There are just not enough of us in NZ to have the "real life" fibre arts groups like they have elsewhere. My blog and other bloggers have become very important to me, especially having been confined to home for so long. And aren't we lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world?

Thanks for the lesson in Egg plants/ Aubergine...I'd never heard it called that before. Nice to learn new things!

Ahh, fresh avocado sounds good, the toast even sounds good, but you'll NEVER convince me that vegemite tastes good ... lol

We had lots of Aussies that came to Tennessee every summer to work at our summer camp... and they all brought vegemite to share, but it'll never be my thing, I'm afraid! Now those cookies, they were excellent. Tim tams or something like that?
