Weekend Away.

It hasn’t been the greatest start to 2013 in terms of blogging.  My computer, which had been running slow for a few weeks, spat its’ dummy out and decided not to play anymore. Fortunately I have a husband who is tech savvy and he has been able to get it going again and even better, I haven’t lost a thing!  So a massive thanks goes out to Sam.

It’s a long weekend here in Hamilton so we escaped to the beach on Friday for a couple of days.  While we were there we visited The Cargo Shed, the home of creative arts in Tauranga, where I bought this gorgeous merino yarn.

More on our weekend away tomorrow.
