Are you hanging up your Australian flag today?
It is interesting to see that New Zealand is going to vote on a new flag, they often get confused at sporting events and at times the wrong flag has been put up on the flagpole. I was a little surprised that the 4 flags they can choose from have no green on them at all. New Zealand is always so green. I was even more surprised that Richie McCaw's face isn't on one of the flags!
Now we all know that Father's Day is not far away, actually I didn't realise until yesterday I thought it was next weekend. Men get a lot of things cheaper than us, think socks underwear even boys chocolates are cheaper than the pink ones. I won't name the chocolate brand. Anyway we were wandering around Master's last week, Ian had a gift card that had money left on it. I had a wander around the tools and found this metre length ruler for just over ten dollars. It has all sorts of handy measurements on the back. There was a bigger length but I thought this would be so useful in the sewing room and it has been. Can you imagine what pricethis would have been in a patchwork shop.
I finished the puzzle at 8.00 am Monday morning, Yippee. This was so addictive I would stop to look for a piece and a hour and a half later I was still there. A few late nights.
Thanks for all the warm wishes welcoming Jude into the family, very much appreciated.
Now I had better get back to the sewing machine and finish the quilt.
