Happy Easter

I hope everyone out there is having a good time this Easter. Here in New Zealand it is one of THE holiday weekends as we have Friday and Monday off work and some lucky people even get the Tuesday too. It is also the beginning of a two week holiday for schools. So if you are on holiday I hope your are enjoying it.
Last weekend was an exciting one for me as I had my Son Mark home from Australia. It was really good to see him again and catch up with all his news. He recently went to America for work (he’s a Software Engineer at Google) and of course bought us a few little things back. Everyone got something as this photo of Oscar shows Open-mouthed smile
Hubby wanted bags, pens, drink bottle etc. All I wanted was an little Android figurine.  But they had sold out of them at Google. Lucky when he went to the Computer Museum in Silicon Valley (where else would it be!) He found me one there. They are packaged in foil so it’s a lucky dip what you get like a Kinder Surprise. 
SO here he is my little Android! Isn’t he cute Smile There’s his friends some android apps in the background. Oh and see the app by the left antenna? The one with RK? is it a free quilting app from Robert Kaufman. It has calculators for borders, binding, how many squares you can cut form any size of fabric and many more things too. So if you have a smart phone or tablet download it (it’s free).

Here's Mark outside the Android building, Mountain View.

and with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background. 
He also managed to buy me a little bit of fabric too. It’s all USA themed so I think I will have to keep it aside to make something special with it.

Anyway that’s it from me, I hope you all are enjoying your weekend, and for Whangarei P & Q Club members remember next Saturday is club day, I’m looking forward to it so see you there.


  1. What a thoughtful son you have.

  2. Love the little Droid. Oscar is a very lucky cat to have your son bring him such a special dish. You are blessed to have a loving Son that understands his Mother so well. Happy Easter! Enjoy time with your Family and Friends.

  3. Happy Easter! Cute android (and the son's not too bad either ;) )
    That is VERY American themed fabric - you couldn't really get more American if you tried! Will be interesting to see what you make from it.

  4. Wow thats great! He even got something for the cat! Sounds like your son has a bright future. Also, you gave him the best first name!

  5. I love his I Am Here shirt! :-)
