I've had a wonderful weekend in Wellington with my two sisters for Raelene's birthday today! She loved the belly roll of batiks. And appreciated the fact that I cut some of my favourite fabrics up to give to her.
We did a lot of walking over the weekend .. around the shops of course. Watched 2 movies "It's Complicated" and "Julie and Julia" about Julia Child... both chick flicks but a neat way to spend the time with your sisters. Both of my sisters were knitting gorgeous baby hats.. for friends.... and I sewed the binding onto my tablecover.
Last night we went to Carmen, ballet at St James theatre. That was our birthday present from our little sister Deb. First time for me but absolutely amazing. the strength and flexibility these dancers have was awesome! The storyline was easy to follow and I hadn't read the programme! I wouldn't say I'd go to every ballet but I certainly enjoyed it.
Tonight I'm going out to Trentham for a sewing group and to make some aprons for my sisters and me, and also to make luggage labels with a difference as they're both heading overseas in September (seperately) with their partners. I saw the pattern on the net and well, you'll never get confused with someone else's label. I'll post some photos when I get them done.
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend with good company.
