New Zealand Break

The birthday celebrations are done, so now it's time for recovery!

The MOTH booked a unit by the inlet at Paihia in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, for this short working week between two long weekends in Brisbane, so we're playing golf in the mornings (albeit badly since we haven't played it since we were here last year), haunting the few coffee shops & restaurants that are open in the off season at lunch times & evenings, and spending the afternoon stitching. What a life!

Last year's project for the same trip was Lettres à mon Chat by Isabelle Vautier.

This year, I've taken along Dog Tower, an item from the 2010 Margaret Sherry Collection. The two pieces are not exactly a matching set, but they work well for the natures of my four legged beasties and the walls in my house.

Cute, huh?

I've also got some fiction in translation to read: The Library of Shadows by Mikkel Birkegaard. It's his first novel. I've had a sneak peek, and it seems to be quite a fun read.

Happiness & laughter to one and all. I'll fill you in on holiday details when I get back!
