I found this gem when I was sorting through some photos. Here we are all ready to go to Raylene and Ken's wedding in 1976. Did we all dress that badly back then? The boys still complain about the woollen suits I made them - my caftan even has a hood and Ian's tweed jacket has been put to great fancy dress use over the years along with his bell bottoms.
We had a nice weekend in Sydney and came home to rain - lots of it - lovely stuff.
Watched the All Blacks win against Ireland in Wellington in the most atrocious conditions. I do recall in the past landing and taking off from Wellington airport - more like a helicopter going directly up - that was in the days when they gave you a glass (yes a glass) full of orange juice before you took off and the attempts not to spill meant drink fast.
The on-line embellisher workshop people have been producing some lovely work - just putting the finishing touches to the second lesson here.
