This may not be it's home but for photo purposes the completed Agapanthus wall hanging is here in full view as we walk by.
I am pleased with the finished project which just requires ( and will get ) a label on the back. ( it is actually brighter than the photos show; perhaps I should take it outside for a photo shoot.)
Yesterday I tried to post but the internet was playing up - possibly due to high winds....anyway I have it back today.
Why are all these ladies so busy?
We had a wonderfully busy day at P and Q on Friday. N had templates for us all to make wee pincushions. About 30 of the ladies all made them. In every colour ...all cute. ( see a large cardboard circle on the table - that is the middle of the pincushion which gets gathered up and stuffed.)
This is mine half finished...showing the base. I might get it done today.
*Thankyou for your comments; I know I am not alone missing grown up kids.
* He is 36 Gudrun and has been in UK 9 years so really I am well used to it. His partner V is 30 and has been there 4 years .( she's a Kiwi too! )
* Julieq...yes, I do keep busy and it helps; you are right.
* Thanks Thimleanna.
*Sal the park with the ducks is the swamp just across the main road from 195 - S and M's place . I think you looked at a house section in the area just above this. You would certainly notice some changes around Tauranga.
This plump pregnant mantis was on the wall directly above my head when I woke up...I don't know where she thought she was going to make an egg raft but I quickly took her to the herb garden and suggested that wall might be a better choice.( cute eh? )
I found this on the orchard floor on Thursday. I tried putting it back up in the vine but don't know if the mother bird will return. It is so finely woven; look at the back of it .
Tomorrow we do the final pickof this season's avocados- just for local market sales as the export season has closed.The bins and hyraladas are here ready.
Now I need to go and process some veges. Excess tomatoes, beans and courgettes. I was thrilled to be able to swap some with a neighbor for eggs.
Autumn is really setting in the nights are cooler ( I can sleep better )and the daylight hours noticably shorter.
