Do you remember the story of our overnight stay in Oamaru?
Short version, we were in the butcher’s shop, waiting to collect the HUGE ham for the wedding, I mentioned we could not get any accommodation for the night, one lovely tall good looking ( did I mention YOUNG as well ) said we could stay with him. Another very kind gentleman suggested the same. Then Jill, standing just behind me, said “ Come and stay with Alister and me”. We did. The ending of this tale is that I made a large toy bag for their grandson Jack, ( our way of saying a huge thank you ) posted it down to the South Island ( this time with Track and Trace ) and it might have flown to Australia by now. In true Aussie colours, dark green and gold applique words.The letters are really yellow, but just do not show as well in these photos. Here it is.
Made to last, be dragged round the concrete, dumped in a sand pit, and taken out on trips and holidays. Enjoy your time in Australia, my new so generous and wonderful friends.
The month of March colour was Yellow, and Golden Ted sneaked home by a whisker, one day ahead of closing. He has a blue skipping rope and handles, and again is in batik fabrics. The background is not pale blue, but a homespun fabric in pale calico colour. This is going to go to Christchurch at the end of the year, when all the coloured Teds are made.
Quotation of the day, author unknown
“ Yellow, the colour of sunshine,
joy, happiness, intellect and energy.
Let it be with us throughout the world”
Greetings from Jean.
