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 grandparents

Loved the coast line - the weather was a little bleak but who cares?
Ian went over the swingy bridge but not for me
Too many choices for photos
Pancake Rocks - I have never been there - fabulous - Punakaiki
Went to visit Waiuta - Ian's great uncles were gold miners here
Made our way to Lake Rotoiti and arrived at a perfect moment

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

Below are some of the pages created, samples made and two people finished their books - I hope all the others do before too long. I don't always run workshops where we actually complete things. We covered quite a large number of different techniques in two days.
