The end of summer

It's March and I can already feel the weather changing.  Summer is coming to an end.  But before it does, I've got my work social weekend to attend.  

Mt Taranaki

Three years ago in March 2020, just before the COVID lockdowns started, we had our work social weekend in New Plymouth.  It was a great weekend away, and the weather was just perfect. 

Now we're finally able to hold another social weekend and this time we're going to Paraparaumu Beach for the weekend.  Some people will play golf, some will take a boat trip over to Kapiti Island and climb to the top, and some will go on a food tour of local markets and cafes.  Then we'll all meet up on Saturday night for dinner.  

On Sunday there will be more golf and walks before everyone heads home after lunch.   

So I won't get much quilting done this weekend because I'm the one organising the whole weekend. 

After this weekend my calendar is free for a few weeks and I'm really looking forward to cutting into some new fabrics and getting creative. 

Hopefully you've had time for quilting, so feel free to link up a recent blog post below.

I know it’s not quilting, but your weekend away sounds great, an idea I might just have to steal for work in future :)
