Watched the DVD of "Salt" last night - brilliant movie, with a great twist at the end. My 13yr old was entranced - very action packed, great story line, the downside was that the move was over before you knew it. Angelina played a great part. Totally recommend for holiday viewing.

Well the weather here in Wellington today is horrendous, makes you wonder what happened to Summer. We have gale force winds some up to 150km/hr, and rain that is so heavy. The Rimutaka Hill Road has been closed, and emergency services are being called out for blown down trees, and accidents on the roads.

Looks like it will be a day spent inside. Planning on cleaning out the wardrobe and tidying up the sewing space ...

Have a great day everyone.

A very happy christmas to all...

Wishing you and your families a very safe and happy christmas... may you be spoilt with love and hugs (and a few crafty items)... , remember to eat well; know that leftovers taste even better for Boxing Day lunch; slip slop slap if you are lucky enough to be somewhere in the sun; don't drink and drive, and above all else enjoy being in the company of your loved ones.

Christmas wishes from Diesel... and a not so impressed Bella ! xxx

"Arrgh get these things off my head"...
Love to all

Ooh lucky me...

... tonight I was given a bag of selvages from my quilty friends who went to retreat over the weekend, and one of the quilty friends decided to also give me her secret stash - wahoo !!

This adds very nicely to my secret stash... nearly enough to start working on the quilt I'm wanting to make - design yet to be decided ;)
