end of the week.

I took my son Conor for another drive to the end of our rd, (our rd is 10 k long and all loose metal) and we got there just after 8 pm to see the sun setting.  It goes down just after 8 pm these days as we are into daylight saving. I have a few pics but probably won't get them in the right order so I leave it up to you to figure it out.

(These are in reverse order, scroll up from the bottom perhaps)

gone...the sun sunk down below the horizon.

the view in early evening. looking out from Anawhata beach and over left  toward Piha beach.

all most gone.

going down...




sinking  on the horizon...

As soon as the sun hits the horizon mark it is so amazing to see how fast it actually disappears from view.  Blink your eyes and you nearly miss it.!  It is a beautiful view too.

Well I have done a little sewing but don't have any pics yet. I have been doing the quilting on chey's quilt.. He will get it before xmas . It's way past his birthday but I really want it done before xmas so he doesn't think it is a xmas prezzy.  Just got to do the borders then the binding.

And a pic Chippy relaxing on the deck in the sun. Lucky dog!
chippy relaxing.

''It's finally finished".

Well I finally finished my 'fusion' blanket on tuesday!  So glad to have it done.  It has been sitting in the bag on the floor for weeks just waiting for me to do the edging and once I started it didn't take as long as I thought it would.  I did a scallop edging all round in the chocolate brown cotton.  I used 2 charm packs one on each side so it is reversible. The charm pack was 'Dragonfly summer".  I like how it has turned out.
Now to finish some other things half done....
the squares layed out 

all joined up and finished.

A little sewing ...

I was in my sewing room tidying up the rubbish off the floor yesterday but kind of got side tracked  when I found some scraps that I had put aside  for a pincushion I wanted to make and next thing I was sewing it up and stuffing it and forgot to finish tidying the know how it goes. But that is all I made. These are really easy to make.

 Sunday is my eldest son, Gene's 19 birthday and we have bought him his own laptop....he should really like that!  I would like that if someone bought one for me....but dreams are free ah.
It's a bit cold and windy here today and I wanted to go and finish weeding my vegy patch but i think it can wait. The sun is out but a cold wind.

I put a small yo-yo instead of a button

On monday we celebrate guy faulkes here, 5th november.
We were meant to go to a fireworks display last night but they cancelled it till 17th November, the boys were whinging about that so let off some of there home made bombs.....then we got a complaint from the neighbor about scaring the horses.....we didn't know there were horses on there place..Nice of them to let us know!  ..I hope they get them moved somewhere else for monday night as everyone will letting off there fireworks !!  Chippy went up to the back fence and barked at them too but they didn't seem worried at all, so they might be ok.
