I've been doing stuff lately

Hello beloved blog universe - how I have missed you all! I would say I am now back to blogging, but in a few days I'm off the the USA for THREE WEEKS! Also I left my old job and I'm starting a new one in July.

Thought I'd just post a snapshot of some fun things I've been up too since I've taken a blogging break.

I went on a FART (Fabric Acquisition Road Trip) to Levin and Palmerston North with my friend Emma.

I made a new dress, its a shift dress from Skirts and Dresses for First time sewers by Christine Haynes. The fabric is from my beloved (now closed) Arthur Toye Fabrics.Although I will make it a size or two smaller next time.

 Rich and I took a walk to Island Bay, visited the Marine Centre and found a heart shaped rock!

I had high tea with my friend Shell for her birthday, we visited a new kitschy place in Kilbirnie.

Rich and I had our THIRTEEN YEAR  anniversary and decided to met some red pandas in celebration.

I completed my first Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery cross stitch as a present for my friend Shell.
Finally Ria and I went to a trampoline park in Petone and followed it up with lunch in the sunshine.

There will be a bit more radio silence at this end as I'm going away on holidays, but expect more regular posts once I return from my trip!
