Here in New Zealand we go into lockdown at 11.59pm
on Wednesday 25th March 2020.
The decision was taken by the Government yesterday and
the announcement and details were given by the
This was the sunrise yesterday just a few hours before the announcement.
As of tomorrow at 11.59pm life will change for us.
Schools and universities shut down, shops, restaurants also closed.
Building sites closed down, the list is a long one!
The essentials to remain open will be pharmacies, medical surgeries and
supermarkets everything else will be closed.
We are all to remain home, we can not mix with others, not even family, we can only have
close contact with people living in the house.
All 70 year olds and those with underlying health problems (me) are classed as
high risk so thank goodness for the telephone, skype and facetime and computers.
We have to arrange for groceries to be collected
- thank goodness we have our three adult 'children' who have all
offered any help we need.
It has been difficult to concentrate over the past three days
but I have a finished table runner top, or it could be used as
a very long wall-hanging, I just have to trim the
sides and then can sandwich it for quilting.
I used the Ombre digitally printed range from Jennifer Sampou and the pattern.
This is my first experience with this sort of fabric
and I much prefer my usual regular quilting fabrics.
However, I do love the colours!
Measurements - 72" x 16 and 1/2"
Well, almost time for the latest bulletin so off to the living room
and the tv.
All of you stay safe and well and we can keep in touch as usual
with our blogs and our quilting adventures!
