Home from Symposium

We had a great time at the National Symposium held in Queenstown NZ this past week. I haven’t done any sewing since I came home, as there’s always a payoff for being away from home and the office.

Four of us flew down to Queenstown 2 days before Symposium, hired a rental car, and drove to Arrowtown & Wanaka,and stayed a couple of days. Took some lovely photos.

The colours down there are amazingIMG_2059  IMG_2060 This was the only bit of snow we saw, and it only lasted a day or two then melted away.IMG_2063 The water is so blue, but freezing cold and the grass so green. These photos are not enhanced. That is how the colours are.

IMG_2038 The day here was overcast but the scenery just as beautiful.

Have just had a lovely weekend of children & grandchildren for lunch and to stay over. It always makes my heart sing to have them here. I don’t see enough of them, so I treasure any times with them.

Thanks for dropping by
