I so love how this turned out. I stitched it with the recommended threads (a mixture of WDW and GAST) on 28 count Apple Blossom Lugana from Countrystitch. I am not sure how I will finish it yet.
I passed my driving test on Tuesday. Yay! I'm fully licensed now. The lady testing officer said she wished they were all like me - I got 100% in Parts 1 and 2, and there were just two small things in Part 3.
Last Sunday we went to the
Karori Wildlife Sanctuary. I highly recommend it to my local (or holidaying in NZ) readers - it's not a zoo and I didn't expect to see anything more than on any other bush walk (of which there are many in NZ). Boy was I mistaken - we saw tuatara, skinks, geckos, loads of beautiful native birds and wetas.
Wetas strike fear into many people, not because they can harm you but because they're not very pretty (I remember my older sister going into some bushes to retrieve a ball when we were kids and coming out screaming blue murder because there was one on her back LOL).
I never knew there were cave wetas. So OH, BIL and I donned some hard hats and ventured into the darkness - I was actually glad that we didn't manage to locate any - I think I would have freaked!!! You can see a photo here if you are brave.... I made OH do a hoodie check when we came out, I wouldn't have wanted to have realised later I had one of those hiding in my sweatshirt!
OH and I are going to become members and go far more regularly, and of course support a fantastic cause.
Hang in there folks, tomorrow is Friday. YAY!
