Here it is before being finished up into a needleroll - not a great photo, I took it last night quickly before I finished it off.
and finished as a needleroll, it's a bit longer than I expected, and I didn't have the right coloured ribbbon, I might leave the black - or might replace it when I get near a shop to buy some more.
The kids are still off school today - expected back tomorrow. Temporary classes were being trucked there last night, I think, and the teachers are going into today to work on helping get them ready and plan out how to handle the kids etc. I think they have to finish demolishing the damaged classrooms today and make everything safe as well.
So, instead of getting down at wondering when I'm finally going to get everyone off to school and the house to myself ;0) ... a friend and I are meeting at the pools this morning - we might as well enjoy the sunshine! I'll ignore my bombsite of a house until tmorrow.
I got up at 6.30 and met my friend for a walk, I've breakfasted and showered and have a batch of muffins baking to take with us ... should be a nice day :)
