Because I'd not had much opportunity to take photos yesterday... I took some on the trip home.  It was at sunset in the Waikato, and the fog was already coming down.

Waikato gets LOTS of FOG!  Shit I don't miss that.  Or the heavy frosts.  It's a cold, damp, miserable place to live in winter.

Anyway, I digress... here's a few photos I did manage to take:

 ABOVE:  the sky REALLY was that colour!

 ABOVE:  Fog drifting across the hills.

 ABOVE:  And fog down really low on the fields.

ABOVE: Pretty, but I don't miss the Waikato at all.

So, they are not that good, but I like them and am pleasantly surprised I got any worth showing.

Today?  Both kids are back at school, the blokes are at work, and it's just us girls and Dante.

I'm going to make a start on joining those 5" blocks. 
I didn't get to Grandmother's Garden in Gordonton yesterday afternoon,  we were much later leaving Hamilton than I thought we would be.

So... I'll get some more brown & teal fabric another day.  It's not like I don't have something else to be getting on with!


VIC:  what do you mean by 'these holidays'?  They are over now! 

 ABOVE:  What was that I said about going to get more brown & teal fabric another day?

LOL... Bex wanted to go to David's Emporium, so I tagged along.  While out we popped into Spotlight.  They were having a sale, 40% off patchwork fabric.  I got those 5 pieces of fabric, each just over a 3rd of a metre for $15!  SCORE.  Now I can cut them out and add them to the brown & teal quilt.

ABOVE:  Teddy and Dante.  Dante is still a bit rough and ready, but Teddy is learning to tolerate him.  All Dante wants to do is hug him after all!  *smiles* 

Late afternoon and I've finally got all the fabric cut into 5" squares.
What a job.  Now... waiting for Stew to come home so we can order dinner.  It's 'takeaway' night in this house.  Yaaa, no one has to cook.

I have got serious eye strain from cutting fabric I think.  Or else I'm just really tired!  *smiles*

End of Day:  loving all the new programes on the telly right now.  And Mrs Brown's Boys is back, we all love that show.
