Thanks everyone for your comments on my last post and best wishes for my holiday, but I'm so sorry I didn't have a chance to thank you individually. I can assure you that I read all of them. One more day here before we leave for Japan. While I have access to the Internet I thought I would post some photos to share with you from NZ. Please enjoy...!
Silver fern is a symbol of New Zealand. It's the symbol of the All Black NZ's national rugby team. When we visited our friend Carol and Paul they just cut a branch of silver fern for their kitchen and I thought it looks appropriate as a symbol of NZ.
MIL's lives on the North Shore of Auckland and this is the view of Auckalnd city from the harbour bridge. I snapped this photo from the car so it is not the best. This is the harbour that hosted the America's Cup yaght race.
I even have an antique quilt to share with you. This antique quilt belongs to Carol. It is made from 30's fabric. It was hand pieced and quilted. It's a lovely quilt, but in a fragile state. I have seen this block before, but for the life of me I can't remember the name of the block, please help?I took a close up photo of the blocks to ask if you know the name of the block and how to construct it. I want to make one the same for my DD.
Here I'm relaxing on the back deck of our friend's house. Their stray cat was checking my lap out, but I don't think she was happy there.
