A short Trip

Tony and I took a trip up to Auckland last week to visit with friends.
We timed it all wrong and happened to be there while an incredibly wet weather event was taking place.
Parts of the city were flooded!
Luckily we stayed dry.
Because of the weather there wasn't much in the way of touristy stuff, but we did get out and about. There was some his and hers shopping.
I picked up a few magazines, some cross stitch charts and a kit, and a cute wee hanger for in my room.
I'm sure we've all had those times when the bobbin has stopped play!
Because of the awful weather, more time was spent indoors than was planned, but fortunately I had taken along a crochet project. I had popped a bunch of scrappy yarn pieces into a bag and set about making more squares.
I almost finished a crib/pram size blanket, with just a couple of border rounds left to add.
I forgot to take along a needle for weaving in ends and as I'm not very good at doing that using my hook I have a billion ends to deal with!
After Belle has finished her testing and inspections!
We got home at tea time on Saturday, so a quiet day was had yesterday, I did some laundry, shopped for groceries and then cross stitched.
I plan to stitch today too.

It was certainly not a good time to visit Auckland - their weather woes are over yet, it seems. Just as well you took some hand craft, and it's always nice to catch up with friends.

Your soups/sauces look delicious. Busy girl. Love to see your crocheting; you are quite a bit faster than I am. Happy stitching/hooking!

It looks like you still took advantage of a different shopping scene, even if the weather didn't play. Next time you are up there you will hopefully be able to play the tourist.
