We went back to the Art Centre on Saturday, it was sunny and the day begged for a coffee and some fudge! Some of the craft work for sale, above, is felt. I loved that hat!
You can buy mirrors (can you spot me??)
Here is an example of the different art - the old buildings and a new sculpture....
And a bit of colour with the chairs.
I know, I'm being a bit naughty but hey, this photo just had to be shot!
This week in Christchurch we are waiting for the jury decision in yet another murder case. I say murder but the "perp" says it was manslaughter becasue the young lady "provoked him". This guy was a tutor at the university attended by the victim. Rightly or wrongly she became his girlfriend in what appears to be a rather fraught relationship. he was and is much older than the young girl, just 23 in death. He stabbed her with a knife he just happened to have in his bag. He mutilated her body. The police counted 216 stab wounds. I hope he gets the book thrown at him. This guy has not shown the remotest glimmer of remorse. In fact he has said that he has had time to get over it and appeared to suggest everyone else should too. This man (and I use that term loosely) is one person who should be locked up and never see the light of day.
In the interim, while I sit here with my knitting and waiting for the decision, a bit of Curtis Mayfield I think to calm my jangled nerves. PLUS this should have been posted on Saturday, and this is my Saturday Song! If you pop over to Louciao at Decollete you will know the importance of the Saturday Song.
