For a lark, and on a friend's recommendation, I entered the Timaru Sewing Centre's Make'n'Model competition. The making part was easy, with the dress and jacket being ready by the end of the summer holidays. The modelling part, as all those involved realized on the day, was a little more nerve-wracking as we had to become ramp models and display our finished garments on a catwalk. It was a great evening of fashion though and well organized by the Sewing Centre - hats off to them for all the hard work leading up to the event!

Graham and Liz have (bravely) (graciously) offered their home as a landing point for a large family leaving a West Coast community. We didn't have a lot of time to prepare for this family of 14, so many hands were called in and the work was made somewhat fun. Tents went up in the paddock for the Gregorys, freeing up the entire house. Beds everywhere, toothbrushes galore - what an adventure awaits!
