Cats and Quilts from Romany Quilting

Our beautiful Birman Gemma, like most cats, snoozes away during the day tucked up somewhere nice and comfy.  If not in front of our big windows in a sunny spot, she could be found on the sofa, and she rather likes our bed.  It’s all about comfort, isn't it.  Here she is, on top of my winter cat quilt, with her head on a pussy cat cushion.  She doesn’t know it, but the cushion has a photo of our previous Birman Muffy on the front, and was a 65th birthday gift from my penfriend Dianne from USA ...

Off on a Trip from Romany Quilting

Finally we are off on a caravan trip - the weekend was spent with our caravan club buddies, not too far away at Betts Farm.  Our previous caravan club rally had been cancelled due to Covid lockdown, as had our planned 3 week trip north.  So there was plenty of news to catch up with our caravan buddies.  The night ended with a lovely sunset, always so nice to see the gorgeous colours in the sky.

The weekend rally seemed to be all about eating and a little drinking.  Glenys was celebrating her birthday on Saturday so she rushed ...

When In New England... from From the Strawberry Patch...

We made a trip up to New England to visit with family and spend Mother's Day with my mother. As of this morning we're home again and the washing machine is working overtime. Our visit north was blessed by the weather gods; lovel, sunny (albeit chilly) days and crisp, cool nights. It was glorious! My sister and her husband met up with a lobster fisherman on Saturday afternoon and brought back TEN(

Embroidery Quilt, Zucchini, and Laundry from caledonia quilter

This gal loves doing embroidery and is making quilts for her grandkids.  This one is number four,  think.
Edge to Edge in the center portion, with a separate border.
I still have zucchini in the freezer (which, as you can imagine, DH is THRILLED about, lol).  This was good.  Normally you see zucchini used in a sweet loaf but a savory version was great with soup and made for a nice bite at lunch.

With the weather getting nicer I can get some of the laundry outside to dry.  Save the environment, you know?  You can also use it to ...

Show and Tell at the Laundromat from Romany Quilting

How often would this happen to strangers, I wonder?  While still on holiday, there I was, waiting for yet another load of washing to finish its cycle at the laundromat.  It was a typical very hot Hawkes Bay day so I decided to sit outside while I did a little knitting.  Along came young woman who had the same idea, it was so hot inside with all the machines, that we were pleased of a gentle breeze wafting around.  Her name was Louise, and she had brought her knitting along too, to while away the waiting time.

Holiday Knitting and Tripping Around from Romany Quilting

I’ve taken both knitting and stitching projects away on the trip.  Must admit I often do knitting in the car while we are traveling, and have finished two little sleeves on the toddler cardigan I’m making and have now started on the back.  I’m not in any hurry with this project, and I’m using up left over wool from my own jumper finished recently.

Where have we been? from Romany Quilting

So where have we been?  Rotorua, for a start – which has a love story to tell.  From where we were staying, I could just get a glimpse of Lake Rotorua and Mokoia Island.  The Maori legend tells of two lovers.   Tutanekai lived on Mokoia Island and Hinemoa was a princess of a tribe that lived on the shores of the lake. Though deeply in love, Hinemoa's parents had forbidden them to meet. In desperation Hinemoa swam to Mokoia Island guided by Tutanekai's flute, and so began Rotorua's most famous legend. Arriving at the island Hinemoa rested in ...

Home again from Romany Quilting

We are now safely back home after our trip away.  The caravan has been emptied and cleaned, and I’ve finally caught up with the laundry.  Although we visited the laundromat regularly while we were away, there always seems to be mountains of washing when we return home – of course the sheets and towels all added to the pile.  Just as well I quite enjoy being a washer woman!

Autumn has now arrived in my part of the world, so it was time for a seasonal change.  I’m really pleased with my little Autumn wall-hanging stitchery up on the ...

Tripping Around from Romany Quilting

Here we are – tripping around the country again.  We left home last Friday in the pouring rain, traveling along the Desert Road and through the army town of Waiouru to get a great view of my favourite mountain, Mt Ruapehu.  No time to stop here though, we were making for Taupo.

Mt Ruapehu

We like to have  the radio on while we are traveling, tuned to Magic which plays “all the songs you know and love”.  And look, they're playing my extra special favourite song, Ten Guitars.  I love it so much I’ve told the family I want ...
