Things I'm loving!


Here's what I've been up to recently...
Making this for a special friend
Elephant Snuggle Toy

A wonderfully silky side and a snuggly fleece side all in pretty (manly) blues
See original tutorial here from Sew Mama Sew

An outing to Ngawha Springs in Kaikohe
 Ok so it's a bit off the beaten track and VERY old school, BUT it's almost the best in the world for the mineral content and it's cheap :) like $5 as apposed to Waiwera's however much that is nowadays! Needless to say, Master T loved it.
 And I got some gorgeous pics of him (as if I didn't have enough already!)

I won something!!
I never ever win competitions and even though it wasn't huge, I was sooo excited. Here's what's coming my way in the post very soon... Some really cute fabric. Will post pictures of what I make when I get some more free time (ha)

Picnik

  8. I googled Ngawha Springs looks fantastic - sadly not a 'day trip' for us . . . and YES Waiwera is SOOOOOOO expensive!

    BTW you're set to 'no reply at blogger' so I can't reply to your comment on my blog
