It's unbelievable miserable and grey and gloomy in Christchurch at the moment.
Driving around is just glum glum glum.
There's demolition and sewer repair and roadworks everywhere.
Wherever you go there are more and more empty sections
which actually are more sad than a broken building somehow.
All wet, grey and soggy in the rain. Depressing much I say.
If we thought it was dusty last summer, I'd say it's not a patch on this summer.
Apparently there will only be 20% of the buildings still standing in the centre of town.
This too will pass I'm sure. Eventually there will be a city again from the dust.
A couple of things we have a lot of are those fences they put around sites
and road cones. Thousands and thousands of them.
They are everywhere.
I thought I should make a triangle quilt in orange and grey because of all the road cones.
This luscious stack of Madrona Road seems appropriate.
I think something like this. Although I might put white tips on them.
Anyway I have a few other projects I should do first
but sometime I'll cut into this pile and make a Road Cone Quilt!
