Plans are afoot to visit New Zealand this year and I was wondering if you could recommend things I should not miss seeing or doing.
We intend to drive as we've been told it's the best way to see the country and along the way I'd like to visit museums, shows or maybe even participate in a workshop if possible. My interest lies in fiber art, embroidery and textiles but I'm open to view and be exposed to anything of beauty and creativity.
Should I avoid something? that would be useful information too.
Thanks in advance for any tips and suggestions you may have.
I hope you have a good week.

Patch Exchange

In December last year Erin of gatherwhatspills  had put out a call for a patch exchange on Instagram. 
I started work on my patch in January. The starting point were these beer bottle crowns which I flattened out. The husband had got himself some Simba stout and the lion on the crown is a cool dude with sunglasses so I decided that would be my starting point.
Added line after line of embroidery.
And ended up with this. The finished patch. Ready to be posted this week to my exchange partner in Washington DC.
  I've made a couple of round patches which will  be available in my Etsy store along with a few other things. Here's the link to my Etsy shop - millionstitches
We're already in February. Time really flies.
Have a good week.
