My freshly dug yams.( they weren't all this nice! )I love yams.
Today I am being forced to experiment posting a blog using my laptop. I do not like the photo programme on it nearly as much as the one on my PC, which I normally use. (Possibly because I have not practised using it, but it takes far longer with fewer options) I hope to be able to use my laptop this coming week when away down in Taupo. It is only the photo processing that is very different. I am unused to it on this laptop. It did not seem to give me the option to reduce the size for uploading here.( it might just be me! )
One member had completed a beautiful long table runner for her big table. Here is some of the detail.( click to enlarge )
I really liked the hand stitching on it. I might ask her for the pattern as I would like to make one similar.
Today we are lucky with sunshine - not everywhere is getting it, so I have been for a walk; I hope soaking up the vitamin Dwill help my immunity. I have picked Jonquils and Daphne which both smell so good. Flowers are not lasting long in the house at the moment with the fire roaring, but it smells nice while they last.
Poor R has had a horrid sneezy cold since Thursday. (He knows who he caught it off, but that happens unfortunately.) We have been taking ridiculous precautions to try and prevent me from catching it from him. He has slept on the couch by the fire in the lounge and kept warm for 3 nights now. He has been using the pc so if I use it I am putting gloves on....... my typing is bad enough without that!.Much hand washing is going on with both of us, almost to the compulsive stage.... but so( far fingers crossed ) I am still in good health. I do so hope I stay well to go to the cold place on Thursday. There is snow down to low levels all around the Central North Island so not a brilliant time of the year to be holding a quilting Symposium in Taupo.
Much preparation and list writing and clothes piles etc. are being assembled.
