summer skirts

I sewed some simple cotton skirts for the girls ! Have not sewed clothes since Neah was little .
I should do this more often - they only took about 10 minutes each and cost less than $8 each, thats about $30 less than Pumpkin Patch - whose quality and styles for girls has gone to the pack anyways.

Flinders Lane, Melbourne

from my i-phone.

Some day I'm going back there with my real camera and time !
We just happened upon it by chance.

New Zealand. September 2010

So in pretty much the exact opposite order of our trip,

Mt Cook National Park
overlooking Queenstown
Brad, measuring up against Sir Edmund Hilary

indulging in some gourmet Hokey Pokey ice-cream. New Zealands favourite.

Panning for gold at Arrowtown.
We had two excellent days skiing at Coronet Peak. Queenstown. This is Neah with an instructor who taught them 1 hour each day. They caught on pretty quick !

7th birthday tea at Aunty Lois and Uncle Peter Kirchers. Cromwell

Looking over Christchurch. Brads grandad used to work on a flower farm on this hill. This was on a Thursday. The earthquake hit on Saturday. We were then at Cromwell, 5 hours south and it woke me and Aunty Lois up , but not Brad or Uncle Peter !
