Today is really the last day of my week's holiday - tomorrow is the start of a new week and its back to work on Monday!
While on holiday I completed this Advent Calendar - early preparations for Christmas presents! There only remains the buttons to sew on and the cord tags for each piece but they need a good hard press with the iron first.
Today I spent all day at a gathering of all the Embroiderer's Guilds in the Auckland region and as well as listening to interesting speakers, looking at wonderful stitching and avoiding temptation at the "merchants mall". There were several tables of work exhibited from each of the Guild's present and this snapshot is of the East Auckland Guild who were hosts for the day. Isn't that a lovely example of a Reticella mat in the foreground.
And now a couple of food shots from my holiday.
This was called Cafe Cake - and I was really tempted to ask for the recipe!
And so its Good Night from me as I'm off to do the ironing. Have a good evening everyone.
