Lockdown Activities by IW Club of Riccarton

25 Oct 2021 1:29 PM | Arshi Madan (Administrator)

Members of IW Club of Riccarton kept themselves busy during the lockdown with a number of activities.

  Wishing the Inner Wheel Club of Riccarton will get together soon. Averill at the Lions Wishing Well, Lake Tekapo on 4th September. (IWNZ Day)
Hannie ordered a vege box that really challenged her and she made daikon pickles. It turns out, are really delicious.
  Jan our wonderful knitter from the Y Gym with her latest selection of colour coded granny squares. Jocelyn has since joined the squares into a big beautiful blanket
  Janet and the boys taken last week when the three of them made Lolly cake for their Dad’s Father’s Day present. They were as proud as punch!!! They made the cards to go with the cake and had a lovely time putting everything together.

Jocelyn knitted hats for big grand daughters and a small one for a little friend. She also finished rugs waiting to go to Plunket.

  Cecile started this Christmas wall hanging in January thinking it would take a year to do. Lockdown was a sort of blessing as it had got well behind schedule. The loom has made lots of rugs over the years but this one is using embroidery cottons instead of wool. 98 knots to the row. 187 completed—half way there but no more Lockdowns please!
  On Sunday Margaret and Keith went to look at the daffodils in the gardens. They parked by Helmores Lane and walked only to find the gates locked. However, walking along the path between the river and carpark they spotted newly planted Magnolias just coming into flower in this beautiful deep wine colour .

Margaret made good use of the time spent watching the ParaOlympics by knitting cardigans and beanies for Catherine’s midwife friend Mary.  

  Barbara photographed Planters made from red zone letter boxes, at the Richmond Community garden by Avebury House.
  Last Lockdown everyone was looking for yeast to make bread. Have you made some yummy fresh loaves this time round?
  Myra noted these daffodils on her daily walk admiring the progress of spring.

Thank you for sharing this and inspiring others!
