The temperatures were still hot when we packed the caravan and headed over to Masterton for a four day weekend. It’s so nice when we can sit outside in the evenings enjoying the cooler evening air.
Gemma always enjoys her caravan trips as well, there is plenty to explore outside. She loves being outside investigating fluttering leaves, and sharpening her claws on the tree close by. She was rather perturbed when a large magpie landed on the ground not too far away, and carefully peered around the tree to make sure it didn’t get too close.
I was after some Perle No5 thread and found a wonderful local shop, The Embroidery Shop. Packed to the brim with threads, knitting wool and notions, it certainly was a delight. Yes, I found just what I was after several skeins of burgundy thread, and picked a few extra colours that I’m sure to be wanting sooner or later.
I’ve done a little stitching and finished up two reindeer blocks. Looks like I have another Christmas project on the go, wouldn’t you say.
There were a few games n the hall on Saturday night, and Robin and I came first in the General Knowledge quiz. We received chocolates (yummy) plus this cute little Kitchen Bunny as a prize. The attached label stated “I am a Kitchen Bunny, I’m here to help you out. Just untie my ribbons and I become two dish-clothes and a towel”.
We had a lovely four days away catching up once again with our caravan friends. The camp was delightful and the weather was hot and windy.
