Then last Saturday hubby and I went for a quick drive up the coast to the historic Tolaga Bay wharf which is the longest wharf at 660 meters, in New Zealand.

Wow I have not been on here in over two months. It doesn't mean I haven't been busy. I have been working full time in the last couple of months, but this fortnight I have selected not to pick up any extra shifts because tiredness is catching up on me.
So what have I been doing on my treasured days off? Working on my Master of Nursing. Currently I am finalizing questionnaires and submitting my proposal to my tertiary provider ethics committee in two weeks time.
What else have I been doing. Stitching hexagon flowers together for my HexiMail4 swap on Facebook. I have done over 100 and have just over 40 to go, so on the home stretch. I have also been doing some secret swap stitching too.
Finally I have had a pestering cat hound me whenever I am home. He has some renal problems and overweight, so is on a special diet and for some reason thinks I will continuously feed him.
Here he is trying to give me a sexy pose

Back in 2013 I started completing blocks for the Dixie Diary BOM over at Civil War Quilts blog. I made four, then it became a UFO. However last week I decided to finish these and now all I have left to do is add cornerstones and sashings. Then only today I have realized one of the blocks has been pieced wrong, but an easy fix.
Looking forward to finishing this one. Now to find material to finish it.

When over in Hobart for Lets Get Stitched we went on a bus trip on the Friday where we visited some lovely patchwork shops, but also stopped off for lunch at the Salmon Ponds. It was a lovely setting on a beautiful day to have lunch.
While in Hobart we had Saturday to do what ever we wanted and yes we walked the streets and done some shopping, but we also had a look down at the wharf . I love these boats, but alas get seasick so no ride in it.
Also Hobart has some amazing buildings and I love the architecture of them
Hubby and I are planning on going back as there is still so much to see in Tasmania, with Port Arthur being a place we still have to see, but didn't as time ran out.

We had a great view when the cruise ship the Diamond Princess arrived from our room at Salamanca Inn
And the Salamanca Markets was great. Unfortunately had to watch what I could get as I didn't want the long customs wait when I got back to New Zealand.
On the Friday we went for a bus trip and stopped of at Norfolk and visited a lovely patchwork shop located at a old hospital, which we found out was an old mental institution. The buildings were old but lovely and the patchwork shop was located in the old matrons quarters of the old nursing quarters.
Burgers ....... go to Jack Greenes.....yum!
