Kia Ora- Greetings from New Zealand

No photos yet sorry.

To all of you who posted your good wishes to me for my move from Australia I want to say thank you. I never got the time to send you all a personal thank you but your good wishes were greatly appreciated.
I arrived in Invercargill, which is at the bottom of the South Island,this week and have been slowly finding my way away the place. I am in motel accommodation that the hospital has arranged and  hopefully I will have a home of my own to move too in a few weeks. I have been looking at houses and have fallen in love with one that is going for auction.I am waiting for my house sale in Australia to settle and will make an offer prior to auction if someone else doesn't beat me to it.
Have found a great quilt shop and chatted to the women in there about ways of meeting fellow quilters. There is a retreat in June so hopefully I will be organised to attend.
Will be back soon. It has been great to be able to read everyones blogs and be inspired by so many projects even though the sewing machine is in storage. The knitting needles are busy now making warm jumpers-things I haven't needed for a few years.


  1. Glad to hear from you & that you've arrived in NZ. Hope the house sale goes well & that you are able to purchase the home you are looking at. Hugs, Jeanette

  2. Welcome back Marls, hope all goes well with your house sale and good like with the house up for auction.
    hugs Deb

  3. Glad you arrived safe and sound and I hope you get the house.
    I cross my fingers for you.


  4. Happy to hear it all went ok. Hope your accomodation gets sorted out ok soon and you settle in well!

  5. Marls, it's great to hear from you! Now that you've made quilting contacts, you'll surely settle quickly into life in NZ. I hope you get the home you want, and that your job is wonderful. Don't forget to change your blog profile to "a Kiwi living in NZ." Blessings!

  6. Glad to hear you are safely there and settling in. Hope all continues to progress well!

  7. I hope you get the house you have fallen in love with.
    I couldn't imagine moving from lovely warm Australia to the depths of the south and it's coldness.
    I hope you acclimatise quickly... or have very fast knitting needles!

  8. Glad that you are in NZ and hope you get into your new home soon! Good luck!

  9. Welcome back!! Hope you've settled in down there and that you find your perfect new home soon!

  10. Hope your house sale happens and you can find your new place and start to get settled. I just looked through your blog and I see we both posted the same pic for new years, how funny!!!
