New Zealand

My bags are packed and I'm almost ready. Leaving out of San Francisco for a lengthy flight to Auckland, New Zealand. We leave SFO at 8:00 pm and arrive in Auckland on Sunday morning at 5:00 am. It's 5 hours earlier there the next day. Hhmm. We'll go to our friends house and repack for a few days trip over to Great Barrier Island. The husbands will be out on a sailboat and my girlfriend, Jinn, and I will stay on the island. Then our plans are to play it by ear and travel around the North Island to see the beaches on the far north end and to travel to the center of the island to the Rotorua area. I am not taking my cell phone or my computer. I will take pictures but not sure how often I'll be able to load them while I'm away for three weeks.

Here are some images of garments I've been working on and will finish and list on Etsy when I return.

This garment I have previously blogged about and shown the progression of assembling. I had a dilemma about the buttons and I ended up using these rhinestone ones which were prefect as opposed to the other two original ones I showed you.

Gotta finish getting ready for the trip and am really, really, hoping out flight isn't canceled. It's raining and blowing out there so ......... keep your fingers crossed for me.

Hi Lori,
What a wonderful trip. Enjoy every moment.
I'm taking your class in Sept at Art Is..You. The Hello Doiley class. Really looking forward to it.
If you have a minute take a look at the "felting fiasco" post I wrote yesterday. I'm sure you will be reading me the riot act for this disaster.
Love these blouses... every one of them.
