Christchurch Trip

I was talking to a friend the other day (they want to remain nameless!) who asked me when I was going to post some photo's from Christchurch. So Here are some, just a few so you don't get too bored :-)

One of my favourite things in Christchurch was the Pallet Pavilion which is of of many Gap Filler Projects, to creativity use vacant sections.

It's an amazing project and I had a great time looking at all the different stalls.

From across the road so you can see how big it is.

Here's one of my purchases for the Pallet Pavilion. Old Dr Who comics. Yes I love Dr Who, have since I was a child and my older brothers chased me around the house pretending to be Daleks.

Another place I have always loved is Libraries so I popped my head into a branch in the city centre. I was impressed by how many Quilt Magazines they subscribe to. (Just to have a little quilt related content!)

Onto a walk around the CBD now that most of it is opened. There were lots of old facades being saved like this so new buildings can bebuilt behind them.

421
Only the very centre around the Cathedral is now cordoned off with the Army checking workers in and out.

424
Christchurch Cathedral, just so sad.

And the Catholic Cathedral, see the photo in front of what it used to look like.

  1. I didn't realise they were saving some of the front facades. That's heartening to see (and an interesting way of going about it).

  2. Christchurch Cathedral is sad to let it go but glad something is being done. Looks like you had a good trip. I am working on the last block of Easy Street and will be putting it together next week. If you need some information on it please let me know!!
