I decided to make a Kiwi Carole snippet roll, something NZ to mark the events of the past few weeks
I started at the bottom with a 'stone' brick shaped button
kia kaha - forever strong
a Tiki on top of an 8 cent bus ticket from the Christchurch Transport Board, think I'm showing my age here... ( I have a cupboard full of this stuff...)
Paua shell pieces
I found a 1957 receipt from a shop along Columbo street, my grandfather had bought himself a new vacuum cleaner!
a Tui bottle cap from Kiwi Carole
and International flag ribbon
and a strip of Pohutukawa fabric and some woolly wool to complete the look
Many many thanks for all of your kind wishes, it'll be a long long time before things return to any kind of normal in Christchurch. The city continues to rock and roll and my mother went out and bought some fabulously named Seismic Putty, I kid you not, now she's stuck down all her ornies ' to stop the blimin' things sliding off all the time' down but not out...
