Today's flower is a lemony yellow gerbra. It struggled during the really hot weather ( being quite newly planted ) but with water and time it now seems happy. No perfume but delightful flower face.
This morning we had a successful 30 minute SKYPE with friends in Lethbridge in Canada. It was a good connection and didn't freeze or drop out so that was a good catch up.
This is not a good photo because all the light is outside but I wanted to show you that my Ted is joining all the other bears around the world even tho he's at the upstairs window and only one neighbour has spotted him. The driveway is quite long and there aren't many little kids. He shows up best at night when the light is on .( I took photos but they are not good. )
This is a progress shot. I am making Hot Cross buns. Here they are rising. I used the bread maker to get the dough to this stage.
Today in NZ there are 1039 cases of Covid - 19 180 have recovered and still just 1 death.
Stay safe stay busy everyone.
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. Recently retired after 40 years working on our own small orchard where we grew Kiwifruit and Avocados for export. We have a large garden and grow many fruit, nuts, vegetables and flowers.Our new property runs down to an estuary.. 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.
