Masterton & Wellington catch up

 

Whilst in Masterton we visited the local library.  Along the back wall was a mural of stitched/appliqued/quilted/embroidered panels which the Wairarapa Embroiderers Guild constructed.  The embroidered wall hanging consists of 110 panels, with each panel commemorating an event of significance in the history of the Wairarapa.

They are truly an amazing piece of handwork by some very talented locals.

And the following two pictures are from when Roy met up with Natalie and her children to collect the books we had picked up for them.

Michelle dressed herself for the occasion…ballet skirt, yellow gumboots,  completing the outfit  with a stuffed toy waistband accessory!  What every young fashionable person should be wearing this autumn.  Remember you saw it here first folks.
