Sakura festival

On Saturday we went to the Sakura festival at International Pacific College. Gorgeous day, dancers in national costume, beautiful kimonos everywhere, lots of yummy things to eat. And at the back of the campus, the bush was full of tui birds. There must have been at least 20 of them! One swooped down close to Helen and gave her an enormous fright. The cherry trees were in full flower, so pretty.

Our lazy holiday is coming along nicely too. I've made a couple more tsumami flowers, which are in store now. When we were in Wellington recently I bought a packet of unicorn transfers (Sublime Stitching) from Juniper in Newtown (lovely, lovely store). So I'd like to get a little work done with those this week, possibly maybe.
