We went back to the caravan this weekend
(it was a long weekend in Christchurch)
plenty of time for rest and recreation
Even the daddy will sleep with a crochet blanket
(lucky he doesn't read this, will kill me if he knew I took this picture)
We ate our body weight in sausages. You just can't eat too many right?
We did some reading and I did some stitching
Doesn't it look cosy?? it was even though the weather was freezing!
I sewed this fabric into this frame.
Do you like my shelves?? This really sold my caravan to me!
I counted 15 tins in the caravan.
What can I say? they are so useful for everything from hair ties to gingernuts
games, toy animals, serviettes... you name it!!
A couple of mug candles (and some more tins - sewing ones this time)
I worked a bit on my slow knitting project, a cardy for Annie in maybe 2013
I am that slow. Lucky I have the wonderful Liz to knit things for Annie for me before
she grows out of them!!
This is the view from my bed/sofa.
So majestic in the rain watching the waves crash on the shore.
I picked some beach flowers for my vase.
Memo to self: don't pick those grass seed heads unless you want the family to have
sneezes and the baby to wake many times in the night, oops.
Rediscovered my 'secret' stash of ginger.
So yummy to snack on while you stitch.
Put the kettle on, it's time for [another] cup of tea!!
I whipped up this hat for Annie from a slipper that I partially frogged because I couldn't find her hat,
it has a pointy, toe like top (lol) but plenty of room for the pigtails!!
I also finished a quilt, but I'll post pictures of that tomorrow.
Actually I have 100s more pictures (as you do)
Kaikoura is so so beautiful,
I'll try not to post all of them :)
