2019 - the year of the vignettes

2019 - a new year - fresh ideas - there is always a hiatus towards the end of a year and while I had lots of things on my list of what to do, I thought about this and decided it would be a ME year rather than an everyone else year. There are always so many things one wants to do and as we get a wee bit older, we all have so much to achieve in so little time. Well - it sometimes seems like that.

So - along with hopefully lots of travelling and stuff this year - and we have been so luck to have been able to do a reasonable amount of it in the past - I have decided to create a little Vignette each week - each an A5 size and each will be different - different theme - different style - some things i enjoy doing - some things I am still learning and some things I have not yet learnt. Hand and machine stitch - fabrics and papers and anything which takes my fancy.

This is week 1 - Syd and Ethel - my paternal grandparents- sadly I did not know them - they died when I was very young.

New Zealand in July Part 3

 To finish off our time in NZ we visited parts of the ares I haven't been to - north of Nelson - we stayed at Motueka for a couple of nights

 Loved the coast line - the weather was a little bleak but who cares?

 busy little chappies in the bush

 On our way to Westport we called in at Lyle

Ian went over the swingy bridge but not for me

 Drove south of Westport - I do love the west coast beaches north or south

 Too many choices for photos

 Pancake Rocks - I have never been there - fabulous - Punakaiki

 DOC have done the most fabulous job here

 The intrepid traveller

 Made our way to Reefton - the town of lights - Reefton was the first place in the Southern Hemisphere to have electricity - we stayed at this motel and because they were full, we got the entire top floor

 Went to visit Waiuta - Ian's great uncles were gold miners here

 Left Reefton and made our way over the Rahu Saddle - look at the snow! No wonder it was cold

 Made our way to Lake Rotoiti and arrived at a perfect moment

Last day in wonderful Wellie before flying back to Perth via Auckland. Caught up with Ken and Raylene for lunch. Great time was had - what's next on the agenda?

New Zealand in July Part 2

The view from my workshop window - the church looks like it is on the hill but when I went outside to take more photos, it was pretty well level

 While we were trading, I did a bit of stitching to try some of our lovely threads and prefelts all woven

 My second two day workshop was Old Doors and Openings and we experimented with  all sorts of different techniques whihc could be used in the end result. Here I am demonstrating something or another
 The class worked really hard and produced some different work - I have shown a selection below but somehow I have lost a few of the really superb ones. Sadly...

 brilliant shrinking texture

 this verlvet sample was too gorgeous almost to cut up

 the lady who brought nothing from the requierments list worked from the kit alone and it ended up rather super

 Loved this one watching it come together

 This was fabulous - my photo not so good

Brilliant class and brilliant people. Thank you to everyone - I thoroughly enjoyed it all/
