My Hostess belongs to the Auckland Embroiderers Guild and their annual exhibition finished today. Just before closing we managed to find time to visit. The cute little old building is called Bishop Selwyns Residence but it's only his ghost that lives there now.
In school holidays the Guild run a class for children called Little Sew and Sews and they had a colourful table of all their work. Really interesting. Those children are clever - see that big piece just behind HDHBEM in this picture. Those children stitched that for a national exhibition and they won a prize. I almost took my hat off to them - but I thought it might mess up my hair!
On the way home my hostess drove us past the house where the New Zealand Prime Minister lives - even though she said "my friend John" I think she must have been joking as we didn't call in for a cup of tea.
We all loved these spiky orange tulips and the dark, almost black ones,
My hostess has a busy week at work this week so I will be home keeping HDHBEM company and possibly helping her concentrate on the knitting pattern which seems to be causing some frustration!
Bye for now.
