Earthquake city

A large part of the CBD is now accessible on foot, and earlier this week we took a stroll through what is left of the central part of town. Here is a photo dump (I am not even going to try to describe where these were taken - so few landmarks remain).

Happy Birthday Christchurch Art Gallery

Ten years ago today, the new Christchurch Art Gallery opened it's doors.  Even though it has been closed to the public for over two years now, the folk there have done a stellar job of continuing to show art around the city.

Our little one was only a baby when we last visited, and when they open again, he will be a school boy.  We can't wait.

It's taken me six months, but I've finished off another couple of quilts for friends' babies.

I'm really getting the hang of it now.

Autumn dog walking

Autumn in Christchurch kicks arse. We are generally having a good one - lots of warm days, and lots of dry leaves.  Great dog walking weather..
