I'm flying back home to Australia today so here's my last post from New Zealand.
This tepee was very kindly made for my new grandson by a quilting friend. We just need to find some cap ends to put on the bottom of the PVC pipes so we can stretch it out. For those of you who have been asking, my GS now has a name and it's Noah. I have only been to two shops to look at fabric. I have to confess there are some parcels waiting for me at home from shopping online. I think it will be like Christmas as DH says there are nine parcels. Couldn't hide those!
I found some nice green wool felt to do some strawberry pincushion tops, pretty pinks for a quilt in progress and I picked the browns up at a good price for stems.Apart from some embroidery, I have been catching up on some reading and got three novels. I like to read but I love to sew more. On holidays, I try to catch up. I enjoyed The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan but didn't really think a lot of the Jodi Picoult book.
The book in the middle is one of the best books I have read in a very long time and I highly recommend it. Ugly by Constance Briscoe. It is an autobiography but written beautifully. It's message is one of triumph over adversity and is thought provoking, disturbing and will leave you never again wanting to complain about things that don't matter.
