We were both up early this morning to travel to Orewa. Yes! I didn't know where this was either - but it's a small beachside town about half an hours drive north of The City. My hostess hates being late so we were early!!! But this gave us time to go to the lookout and she kindly took a photo so I can show you the beach. What a pity the tide's out otherwise I might have been tempted to swim.
My previous hostess found me this wonderful travelling pod. It really protects me from too many knocks and bruises although it does rather crush my velvet skirt :-)
Anyway my hostess made good progress on her "project to carry to guild meetings" - the first alphabet is finished. She told me to tell you the details, so here we go - Pochette ABCD'air; one strand of DMC 115 over one thread of Antique White 28 count Cashel Linen and the chart is from here. (Hope I got that right)
My hostess sat next to her friend Beth today and Beth kindly took this photograph of me.
I need to talk to you all tomorrow about my travel plans but meanwhile I'm off for some beauty sleep. Goodnight all.
