What a night...what a game...

It was both exciting and nerve-wracking last night as our team, the mighty Highlanders,  battled it out for the Rugby Super XV title, against another New Zealand team, the Hurricanes , (who had beaten us twice this year).  Not many people out of the area gave us a chance but our team led all through the game, and came away with the title..not bad for a team that was 2nd last in 2013 and are now the champions in very exciting..and as the saying goes 'Better to have a champion team than a team of champions".. a group of players who have worked hard for each other throughout the season.....found this photo online
So to give myself something to do while watching the game (and to keep the nerves at bay) I got out the wool for a ripple rug that I am making for Mum and got through a few rows..I started it on Friday for FNWF and after a month of hardly any crafting it was great to get back into doing something. 

The package of wool for the rug arrived during the week..I am using the pattern and selection of colours for the cottage ripple on the Attic 24 site.  Thought they looked like good colours for Mum, 
So after nearly a month of self imposed absence from blogging it is good to be back.  It has just been such a busy month with report writing, daughter's house flooding etc etc that I had to restrict to catch up on what's been happening in my absence..


  1. GO the Highlanders!! I am sure there were many homes that celebrated well. Lovely colours and a super pattern.

  2. Lovely to see you back Lyn ...
    You worked on a nice blanket while watching the Rugby....
