April OPAM

Another small tally this month.
Two fat quarter bags for April.
Thanks to Peg and Kris for keeping us inspired.
I'm off to my sewing room to play with these!
Hopefully I'll have my first OPAM for May tomorrow!

Austin's Bungy Jump!

 After showing you Noel's skydiving, I realised I never 
got to show you Austin's Bungy Jump from when he 
went to New Zealand last year.
 He looks so much more elegant jumping that I did 
back in 1989! I couldn't bring myself to dive 
and just sort of fell foward!
Austin really loved doing this. Nelson is looking forward to his turn when he heads to NZ with school next year.
You can watch him jump here.

Noel's Skydiving Adventure!

After being postponed for a couple of weeks, yesterday Noel got to do his tandem jump. There was 
a delay due to the fog but once it lifted, 
it was a perfect day to jump 
out of a perfectly good plane!
 Getting harnessed.
 Practicing for landing.
 Prejump interview.
 Time to go!
 That's Ritchie, his new best mate.
 Looking a bit worried here.
 Thumbs up!
 Coming in for the landing.
 We even got a wave.
 Touch down!
 The Support Team.
See, I do wear something other than dresses!

So there you have it. 
Noel finally got his 60th birthday present.
