It was the Chookshed's 3rd birthday so lots of us got to "attend" the party (virtually of course!!)
I have given in to the temptation of Lucy Boston. When I called in to a LQS I saw some blocks on display with a notice that they have a Lucy Boston group meeting there, they had already had their first get together so I was going to join them for the 2nd one last week..bad luck though as it snowed on and off all day so it was postponed as no one was really keen to go out at night... so the next one is at the end of this month..so a little bit of preparation has been done by way of retail therapy..the book, template and papers..
and a selection of fabrics to get me started..
our weekend jolted to a finish last night..quite literally. They don't call New Zealand the Shaky Isles for nothing..We'd just gone to bed when there was a roaring sound and the house started shaking..the biggest earthquake we have felt in quite a while down here..a 4.7 centred just 30 km away.. we can sometimes feel the odd tremor from other parts of the South Island when they have had earthquakes...and they have recently assigned levels of earthquake risk to various parts of NZ..low, medium and high. We were relieved to see that we live in one of the few parts of the country where it is considered at a low risk of having an earthquake... so it just goes to show...
