My sister loved her birthday celebrations. What a weekend... I ate, I partied, I laughed. It was neat to spend time with my sisters and their families. The book was finished - I did chain stitch between each page and then threaded wool and ribbons between the loops..and the bag too! Wonders never cease. I finished them on time!
I got home on Tuesday, my birthday, after travelling from Wellington to Napier and back and I'm still knackered! Another early night tonight and hopefully I'll be back to normal tomorrow. It'll be catch up on housework, sewing and shopping. Wright Fabrics from Morrinsville is in town so a little bit of late birthday shopping .. well, any excuse... I have enough batiks to make several quilts but they are so yummy......
and on Sunday I am helping make charity quilts with the Committee.
I visited a friend last night and told her I was going to apply for the job in Lower Hutt and she cried. Pleaded with me not to leave Palmy. Made me feel quite anxious today...it is such a huge decision but hell, I have to get the job first and there are so many staff without jobs due to restructuring this week I may be just too optimistic! Looked at rentals down there too and a lot more expensive than here.... so one day at a time ah.
