In the last twelve months, I've been overseas twice, gotten engaged, sewed my wedding dress, got married, bought a house, and turned 30. I also learned to crochet! What I'm saying is that I've been busy.
Of course, I also pledged to BeaJay that I would sew an item of clothing WITH A PRINT in Scary September. Because I need more challenges in my life, apparently! Seriously, my whole wardrobe is block colours. I need to branch out. BeaJay has given me a bit of much-needed inspiration.
So that will be the topic of my next blog post. I promise. In the mean time, here are some tidbits from my last few weeks. In that time we moved house, [I turned 30], and we travelled to Akaroa via Christchurch.
|All our new neighbours stopped by to say hello within a few days of us moving in. One of them brought cupcakes! This is such a friendly neighbourhood.|
|This is the sunset view from our deck. South Auckland is prettier than people think!|
|The guestroom/sewing room is slowly taking shape.|
|Akaroa is gorgeous. This was the view from our motel patio.|
|It has some of the oldest surviving buildings in New Zealand (the warning tape is on one that was earthquake damaged in February 2011).|
|The harbour there is pretty darned scenic too.|
|Lyttleton Harbour was breathtaking, though.|
Have you snapped any photos that took your breath away when you reviewed them? In a good or a bad way?
