I'll be a bit quiet this week as we are having a holiday. Today we fly from Tauranga airport ( above ) via Auckland to Nelson at the top of the South Island ( of New Zealand. ) The weather forecast is not good...high winds as we get down there....I hope it's not too rough. I'll report back when I can.
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.
