Hello to all my visitors!!!

Hi everyone, welcome to my blog. Please excuse the lack of posting, I'm hoping to get some pictures up tonight before the Sew, mama, sew giveaway goes up.
The reason for the barrenness of my blog is simple, I live in Christchurch, NZ, Last september, we were rudely awoken at 4.35am by a magnitude 7.1 earthquake. This resulted in many people losing their jobs and homes. Thankfully no one was killed. We lost our home, and thanks to family & friends for taking us in, and to my Husbands work for paying for us to stay in a hotel for a week, we got through and found a new home for our family.

Feb 22, Tuesday 12.51pm, it happened again, worse this time. 6.3 magnitude, with power twice earths gravity. The CBD crumbled, carparking buildings pancaked. 188 people lost their lives.
I will post about my experiences with the quakes another time.  But it is something that has effected us all. Today is 3 months since the Feb quake, my giveaway item will have some symbolisim towards this, as it has become our life here.

Thanks for reading!
