Oh what a great weekend to be a Kiwi!
So much winning, all at once is quite amazing. With just a population of 4.5 million people, and not large amounts of funding our team at the Olympics has exceeded all my expectations.( and I think there might be more to come ) We are sitting well up the medal table.
To top it off the BOP/ Waikato Chiefs won the super rugby final against the South African Sharks 37 - 6. ( a good result eh Dale? ) I spent a lot of time over the weekend watching our Olympic competitors and those from other countries and loved it. I think UK has done very well too, with so many spectators cheering them on. Thanks for cheering for us when you din't have any of your own competing at the time. Unfortunately there was a down side to the weekend with 2 Kiwi soldiers being killed in Afghanistan.
I have been sewing things kiwi. I finished quilting my first set ( I think there will be more ) of coasters featuring NZ fabrics.
From the top left they feature a Kea; Stitchbirds; NZ flax; NZ Kiwifruit; Kiwi and a Kaka.
The rain has gone for now, so back to work.
* Thanks Carole I now understand what a Zine is.
* Thanks for your email Janice. Yes, you are right we don't get hard frost like you get and that is why we are able to grow sub tropicals like avocado.
* Isabelle I hope you are coping, my thoughts are with you.
