Sorry I've been missing for a week or more from here, we've been off gallivanting on our travels again, and having fun while also helping our dd. It was a great catch-up and a very productive time with her.
Stitching had to take a bit of a backseat while I was away, but I did manage to 'almost' finish this little purse/bag during the evenings.
It just needs blocking, a little fringe on the bottom I think, and I'm on the lookout for a nice button to close it, and also put a lining in it before I can add it to my FO list.
I can't remember where I got the pattern from as it's been in my 'files' a long time.
Summers End Mandala
Since arriving back home on Thursday I have added the ecru thread to the outside edge (two rounds), and now
I have completed Part 13 of Mandala Madness cal - Summers End.
'Only' 5 more Parts to go.
Here is how the full piece looks so far.
A couple of cafe recommendations for you if you are ever travelling around New Zealand.
41 Moa St.
Such a lovely variety of freshly home-baked foods, and a top quality barista.
The Wooden Heart Cafe
28-30 Ellis Rd SH 30
We had a delicious meal here. The home cooked pies are heartily packed full, and so tasty. The meats used are all processed locally and therefore very fresh.
