Busy working

Karen, Mum, Phil and dad outside the Whangamata residence.
It has been a busy couple of weeks once again. We went away for the long weekend and I did a bit of stitching on Sudoku so that was pleasing. Since then I have finished two of the 9 squares, most of the dividing lines and started on another set of nine squares.

Also been doing a bit more on my exhibition piece so that is pleasing to see. The class for the beaded decoration went well and I have seen a number of completed ones and they all look great. I have been looking at ideas for new ones and think I will have another go at working out the instructions when the holidays come along.

Been away to Wanganui to the sit and stitch day which was lots of fun and I was really good about not buying new silk threads. Off to the weekend workshop on Saturday for our guild – we are doing coloured corn pad embroidery. Then I am off to the beach with the institute ladies.

Went to see Thor at the movies in Stratford. Really enjoyed it and would definitely see it again. Hoping to go to a few more movies over the next month at the TET Kings Theatre.

Swap Bot has been fun and I have received a couple of lovely things, tea to try and christmas decorations. I sent the christmas wreath pictured above.
