Breakfast in the sun

Our nephew Brent's partner Emma and her girlfriend from Sweden have breakfast on the front balcony.  Noel is enjoying the morning sun also..Emma and Johanna are both from Sweden and Emma is taking some time out to show Johanna the sights.  They have gone cycling around the city and wineries for the day. Emma is on the left. The girls  have been up the mountain skiing the last few days. Lets hope the weather stays nice for them before they head back up North.

Spring flowers

Just another photo of the spring flowers that come up each year on our beach.  The are just beautiful..I don't know how they survive as they are only growing in the shingle..There is even a big clump of silverbeet growing down there..

Girl's Christmas party quilt

Yay one more finished to have on the wall for Christmas..This is made with all the pinks and greens I bought from Taupo the other month. It is a pattern that was in a Homespun a few years ago. I stitched in the ditch on most of it .  Our daughter and her family are coming back home for five months so I have been busy getting all the Christmas quilts ready to hang up. Two more to finish...The children are going to go to school here to have some Kiwi culture..That will be fun and I guess quite a bit different from the schools in Germany. Their English will be good by the time they go home again. Well better go and get out another quilt to finish off.
