My name is Charlotte, sometimes known as Ms Lottie, occasionally as The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady. This is my blog, where you'll find me writing a lot about my quilting and textile arts and a little about my family's life in a small seaside town in New Zealand. Haere mai!

The holes are dug, the hole diggers gone.  It seemed like an easy mornings work for them.  The holes are so deep I've had to cover them all up with boards to save the kids (or me) from breaking our legs.  Hole inspection tomorrow and then the concrete footings can be poured.  It's really and truly happening.


  1. Woohoo! Progress! Always think of that great Aussie movie "The Castle" when I hear about digging holes.....are you familiar with it?

    "Dad, I dug another's filling with water....." (Dale Kerrigan)

  2. Yay! - one small step taken, many more to look forward to.

  3. It is so nice to see some real progress that is actually visible rather than lots of real progress that only happens in walls or ceiling spaces (electrics and plumbing - looks like we've done nothing unless you inspect the switches).
