I did not experience the earthquake first hand, but Christchurch is where I grew up and I still have strong links to the city through family, friends and my personal history. Although the earthquake was three years ago the effects of it are still and well and truly going on. Christchurch is a city re-building in many ways.
In our family there is a saying you can take the girl (or boy) out of Canterbury but you can't take Canterbury out of the girl (or boy). That is why although Wellington is now home Mr Stitchbird and I still support the Crusaders and feel a strong link to our home town.
So it was only appropriate that we chose red and black this week...
