random posting

I haven’t posted for what seems like an age. No big excuse really except that we have my folks over from the UK and I want to spend every single minute of the day with them. So, I’m just checking in with a bunch of photos that will hopefully keep you going until normality prevails once again.

We spent some time at Aratoi the fabulous Museum of History and Art in Masterton. I was blown away by The Visual Laboratory by Fran Dibble. Her use of textiles, simple stitching and mixed media work perfectly together in my eyes. Heres a sample of her inspiring work:



My birthday BBQ went swimmingly. Can’t say I like being 40 but I’m sure I’ll get used to it. The wonderful Mr Tread Softly brought me a pile of gorgeous Japanese Craft books that I will photograph in detail shortly.


Thank you cards have been made and posted and emails sent.


I am happy to report that my Mum’s need to pop into every fabric shop passed is as strong as mine. Along the way I’ve managed to pick up a small collection of 1930’s reproduction cotton prints that will be used to make…umm…hmmm…I’m sure I’ll think of something but I really needed them!!



Finally, our god daughter, as of two days ago, now has a little baby brother. We’ll be formally introduced to him next week and I’m certain that he will appreciate this little hand knitted hat.


Well, I’m going to go back to being a tourist with my folks for a few more days but will be back soon.

Until next time…
