A Day Out

This morning my neighbour Kelly and I headed off to Hastings. Napier and Havelock North on a plant buying mission.  And a mission it was!  We did have fun buying new plants for my new garden.  We only went to two places with plants - and gee it was cold, very cold so got what we wanted and shot out of there pretty quick!  We did get some goodies though.....


Three standard iceberg roses.... and various plants and grasses.  About all that I could fit in my wee car, but home they came.  I cant wait to get them planted now, it will be almost like and instant garden.  There was some great specials too which made the trip even better!

And this is where they will go....


The grass is dying where I sprayed it a couple of weeks ago, and Kelly and I had a go at digging.... have decided we need a man with a little digger in to dig the rest out as it is just too big for us to do.  So watch this space people!

I did manage to pop into JJ Crafts while we were in Napier too to get a couple of things I needed and came out with this fabric too.


As for stitching, there has not been that much of that going on, but I am almost finished the stocking for Lauren.... one more night I think and then a happy dance.


Gee it is so cold I have lit the fire!  Off to make a cuppa and sit with my feet up for a while and see how much I can get done.

Hope your weekend is going as well as mine!

Go the All Blacks.... one more sleep till the final!

Thanks for stopping in....
