Kia Kaha, Stay Strong Canterbury

So Mother Nature has thrown another hissy fit and yet again Christchurch and in fact all of Canterbury has been hit hard with yet another strong earthquake.  My heart and those of many, many others goes out to all the displaced people, those that are injured, grieving family members, in fact everyone who has been affected by the earthquake including all my family members and dear, dear friends, some of which I haven’t been able to make contact with yet due to telephone overloading and lines down.


As the time draws near for my hospital stay (which happens to be in Christchurch – but we just wont go down that tale yet), sleep is very scarce.  Yep, I’m tired enough but as soon as I get into bed the old brain starts ticking over – ho hum.  So, what is a girl to do??? Yep sew.  This little Hunter Star quilt is 002one using one of the tools that Kerry Glen  demonstrated the other week back.  Another finish for OPAM, sorry Peg, you were right, I did make something else for this month, LOL.

  11. What a lovely way to keep your mind distracted. Yes ChCh has been in my mind a lot too this week as well as Angel. So glad you Deb and Darlene are ok.

    Good luck with the hospital whenever you are scheduled- I'm imagining that things will be a bit up in the air at the mo with appointments.
