Sunday timetable

The  final date for sending bags is here, and they go tomorrow. Now the last lot of photos can be edited, posted, and I can look at the job list for July and August. Family soon arrive on their way south to ski at Mt Hutt and Wanaka, just a one night stop-over before  the ferry crossing.So all fabric,patterns, boxes of cord,ribbons and other associated “stuff” must be tidied away."PHEW, thank goodness” says Hugh, he is so tidy, and I have had mess everywhere for some time now.Then the family arrive, on their way home, for one night again, then the next family come on 14th August, then Mayumi and Akiko come, from Osaka,via Tokyo, via Seoul, to Auckland, fly to Wellington, where we will meet them on 15th August.Ken and Joyce will no doubt share some tears with us, after many years back home in Japan it will be such a reunion.Anyone at Wellington Airport that day will see 6 people all gathered together,  tears of happiness evident, and much talk  and laughter !!!Photos will follow.
The lovely bags from Carol, have sheep, and stripes, the other  has lemon strips  and birds on a blue and green patterned background.

These look lovely, Jean! You've done a great job arranging for these.

Hi Shirley, I changed to Windows Live Writer , easier to edit, more fonts, but I still have to make sure the pics either all have frames, or all have none, so they match. It is hard to realise that the very last lot of bags fly out tomorrow, and in just 4 weeks we go to Wgn to meet our Japanese Host Daughter and her friend, who we also know. Time to put my hands to other things.Hope you have coped with the weather,!!! Cheers Jean,
