Tuscany Town and an Alpine Getaway

Well some good progress on Tuscany Town, just filling in around the trees and also blue on the triangle borders. I'm slowly getting there Yipee!!



I have been sorting through my stash again and I am being a bit ruthless about what I am keeping and what I will sell off, mostly because I will never do half of it in 100 years! I'm sure most of you can relate to that!

A couple of weekends ago we went away for a weekend to Hanmer Springs. Hamner is a beautiful sub alpine little town in North Canterbury with the best hot pools! temperatures ranging from a cool 21 degrees to 41 degrees! Far too hot for me, it's like sitting in a really hot bath with dozens of strangers! Anyway I don't like the really hot pools and tend to stick to the more "cooler" temperature of 28.
We also went for a drive into the mountains to the Molesworth, which is New Zealand's largest  high country station covering an area of over 180,000 hectares.

I won't bore you with too many photos

We also did some mountain biking in Hanmer which has the best tracks and also the most difficult! (I had to walk my bike down some of it) Great weekend though and we are already planning our next trip!

Anyway, BF goes to China on Thursday for 3 1/2 weeks! What am I going to do? haha I know I will miss him terribly but by the time he gets back will have started my new permanent job, which is quite exciting, so I'm sure that will keep me busy and on my toes for a while. It is spring here, though you wouldn't know it because it's snowing right now! Yuk I hate snow!!

Bring on summer!!!

Happy stitching!
