Bon Voyage Hitty Madge

Hitty Madge is ready for her flight to New Zealand and is looking forward to some brighter and warmer weather.  Her travel bag is packed and stowed in the humans suitcase and she has her passport safely in her shoulder bag.  

We will miss her while she is away, but with Miss Becassine and Hitty Granny Estelle in charge, I am sure we will all cope!

Months ago our person saw what she thought would be a perfect canoe for us Hitty girls to use during the summer months in a local charity shop.  Sadly it had a hefty price tag on it, along with an 'Ebay listing' printed out to highlight how 'valuable' it was...what they didn't realise is this wasn't the price it actually sold for, rather the price the seller hoped to get for it.  As did the charity shop.  We think they are starting to lose sight of what they are supposed to be about.  Well that canoe sat there and sat there and of course didn't sell.  Our person asked if they would reduce the price and they said no, so it sat there and sat there and still didn't track several months and she went in today and it had been reduced in price by 75% . Result!  We now have a canoe!  Of course a couple of the girls couldn't wait to try it out for size, even though the couldn't actually put it on the water at the moment.

Hitty Rimu and Hitty Madge declared it was just perfect!

They can't wait until the warmer weather!

Blue Squares Swap

Our person is busy sorting, shredding, clearing and tidying at the moment so we are just getting on with things...

We were delighted when the postman popped a package through the letter box today.

Our blue charm squares arrived and we are excited about making a quilt.

Hitty Madge and Hitty Ethel spent the afternoon sorting through them and organising them, trying to decide how they want to make their quilt.

The Spirit of New Zealand

Hitty Madge was inspired by the Sailor's photograph of 'The Spirit of New Zealand' that he took while sailing off the coast of Algies Bay in New Zealand the other day.

She worked hard at art class today....

Another photo for her  Art Gallery.
