Down in the Garden

Summer Holidays, Wow it is January 2012 already, I hope everyone out there in cyberspace had a wonderful holiday.
My family and I are on holiday, yeah, we arrived into Arrowtown at our holiday home on 28th December and the weather has been fantastic, really like when we were kids and you got up every morning and put on your togs and jandals and the sun shone all day from 7am until you finally flopped into bed.

We headed to Christchurch, (we weren't quite sure about going due to the continued earthquakes)  but we have been here for 4 days and had so much fun.  The kids went on bikes,playground and jumping bean at the lodge we stayed at.  Great for Kids, Meadow Park a top 10 park in Christchurch.  We spent a fair portion of the day in the Antartic Centre at the Christchurch Airport.  We went through a storm, saw the blue penguins, had a fun time at the 4D theatre watching Ice Voyage. 

Lots of shopping for kids stocked up on clothes at the dress smart outlet,  BUT best of all I had time exploring the patchwork shops.

I started the DOWN IN THE GARDEN Leanne Beasley and wow its fun can't seem to put it down as the colours are bright and cheerful.  Will load some photos to blog.   Purchased a couple of bag patterns as I feel the need to play with some bag designs.

Happy Stitching everyone until sometime soon (hopefully not too long away)  We are away to Hamner Springs, South Island, New Zealand,  Hot Springs, bush walks and hopefully happy children.
