A more positive post!...with SNOW

Sorry for the last few posts we have made, they have been very grumbly!

My knitting problems have not yet been solved!  I was going to ask someone to help me fix it at the UFO night that we have at my church for people to bring along their crafty things to do, however UFO night has been cancelled because of all the SNOW we have been having in Wellington!
Snow in Wellington has been my excitement for the day.  I am a relief teacher and I got called into relieve today, however by 11am I was sent home because the senior management were concerned that the teachers who lived in Wellington would find it hard and dangerous getting back over the hill to Wellington later in the day.  So home I came, I have a feeling the school would have finished early and I think  few other schools in the Wellington region were either closed today or closed early. Now I am just waiting to hear if I am teaching at that same school tomorrow or not.

Here are a few photos of the snow :)

 Going down the Wainuiomata hill back from school this morning (I was stopped at the rest area..this photo looks a bit like i'm driving)
 Outside my house earlier on this afternoon after I got back from a snowy outing to get some new warm PJs
 A few hours later...much thicker on the roof and grass

And 20 mins after I took the two above photos this is what it looked like, completely white!!!
What an awesome day :) as I was posting this we had a few massive thunder claps too.

On a sewing front tonight I will spend some time doing the Noah block that I posted about a while ago.  I will finish the applique tonight I think!



  1. Is the snow gone or is it still snowing? We'll use to have a lot of snow in winter, but I hope it will take some time before it comes :-)
    Are you going to sew in the weekend? I hope to do a little tonight.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I hope you enjoyed the snow, I saw your comments on Sandy's blog, I have a quilt shop in Twizel, and will be organising a retreat early next year. Flick me an email if you want further details (
