Setting up new area at work

I enjoy my role as marketing and communications coordinator for the AUT library. We've just moved from one end of the floor to the other - a small move you might think, but no, it took masses of paperwork and meetings, and organising different departments to set up computers or powerpoints, and finally, voila, I find myself in new home.

Birthday celebrations

Love this one of Mum's eager face. I'm blowing the candles out on the lemon syrup cake my sister made me for my birthday at the humble family afternoon tea.
Helen presented me with these wonderful floral panniers for my bike that she had made herself.
Dinner out with friends at Gusto on Ponsonby Road.

Spring deconstructions. . .

This was a 'workshop' we ladies from BE group envisaged for ourselves and organised. We met at a second hand clothing warehouse and spent an hour or two gathering items to cut and paste (so to speak) then arrived with sewing machines and lunch at Bev's beautiful home in Titirangi. This is us about to start sewing.
I made this 'America's Cup' outfit out of a man's shirt with that on it, and a frilly little ladies top. Love the length.
And the one below is from a long hippie dress that touched the floor. I've taken the middle out, and attached the bottom to the top part with some addition of gold shiny fabric and buttons.
Good fun.
