Where have I been?
All over the place but not with online access so no posts but I have been really busy.
Just finished 3 days with the Auckland Quilters and before that I was in Napier. Napier is a town that was destroyed in an earthquake in 1931 and was rebuilt in the (then) current style which happened to be Art Deco. It is a wonderful step back into an incredible era of design which I love. There are many more photos here.
We were also very thrilled that Clare Plug's exhibition 'Look South' based on her travels to Antarctica as one of New Zealand’s 2006/7 Arts Fellows still running and we had it all to ourselves to wander through.
I had a couple of wonderful classes at Patch and Quilt which is a quilt store located on a winery and although I don't imbibe - Peter certainly enjoyed the hospitality. One of my highlights was getting friendly with Jim the pet sheep and the latest addition to the menagerie - Georgie who was only 10 days old. For a city chic - this was very cool.
