A little bit of time here and there all adds up, and I’ve been working away on my second native bird stitchery while on our caravan holiday. This one is a tui, a nectar feeder who loves to sip on the yellow kowhai blossoms in Spring. Although not finished yet, the stitchery is coming along nicely.

We arrived home safely from our two weeks away - and I’ll share a few more holiday snaps with you. We came home along a different route for a change, and driving down a steep hill, we caught our first glimpse of Lake Taupo. Although it looks lovely and peaceful now, Lake Taupo was actually formed by a huge volcanic eruption – read all about it here.
I love mountains, and managed to snap a picture of Mount Ngauruhoe as we drove along the Desert Road. The beautiful cone shape tells of it’s volcanic beginnings.
Our last night away in the caravan was spent on a farm – and I got to see some pretty little (motherless) pet lambs. So cute – but very demanding, and they came in bleating loudly to see if their next meal was ready. One of the little lambs decided to check out one of the farm dog’s kennels, and looked so sweet with it’s little head poking out.
