Having recently joined Annelies siggy group over in the Netherlands I have enjoyed receiving siggies in the mail.

Thank you Ludy, Marij and Marjo, my first three siggies from Holland

My first USA siggie, thank you Thomas

Last but not least my first Australian siggie from my new blog friend Helen, who also included a little something extra, a coaster for my sewing room. Thank you so much Helen. Mine will be in the mail shortly.

Its a nice change to go to the letterbox and receive siggies instead of bills. I now look forward to collecting the mail each day.

Happy Quilting!!

New Zealand Cruise

Well finally I have found sometime to blog, I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and New Year.

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise and had a fantastic time with our great friends Jeff and Jeanne'. I found I was sleeping for a few days after the cruise to catch up as it was a busy schedule, not to mention some late nights (yes plural) tripping the light fantastic.

I have taken 898 photos while I was away so I will only show a few of the best shots. New Zealand was a beautiful place and my photos probably don't do it justice. It was a nice change to see so much greenery, I wish we could get some of their rain fall. My favorite place was Christchurch, it was very English with the Blue stone Buildings and gorgeous gardens. I could easily move there tomorrow.


Milford Sound

Christchurch Botanical Gardens

And not mention theme nights where we had a blast

Western Night

New Years Eve

Island Night

We did go with our hubbies so I had better put in a photo or they may get upset.

Wishing you all a Happy 2010.
