Back again

Hi all,
My Mr. Fox and I had a lovely break away to the north of Auckland and it was soo splendiferous.
What a lovely country i live in. We breathed in the ocean air, soaked up the sun and admired the views.
First stop was a place called Sandspit, what an amazing camping ground they have there...right on the beach...perfect for dipping foxy paws as much as possible.

Sandspit, Rodney District, NZ

Mr. Fox and i had a great time. The actual tent sites were big and they had quaint little cabins that i really wouldnt mind staying in sometime soon. There was a gorgeous cafe too.

Our portable den!!!

The next day we went to Russell in the Bay of Islands...AMAZING. What paradise!! so did not want to come home. Our break away was only for two nights but it was so refreshing and inspiring.

Of course this fox cannot leave crafting at home when she goes away..oh no siree!! I crocheted some little booties, 'gumdrop booties' from Crochet Today Nov/Dec 2009 issue. I just have to pick out some buttons and sew them on. I am really pleased with them...not quite perfect but sweet anyway.
Almost finished booties

I do love the green and brown combo! They whipped up so fast that i started a 'raspberry beret' for myself in the brown.
Before we set of on our adventure i cranked up the sewing machine and put an edging on a 'thrifted by Mama Fox' tapestry. So chuffed with it, looks super cute beside my bed. Thanks so much Mama Fox xx

Bundle of Goodies!!

Well this lucky little fox got a parcel from Mama Fox...oooohhh the goodness. Thought i would share with you how much sweetness and thrifty delight she managed to bundle up and send my way. Oh am soo lucky. What fun, crafting with these goodies will be, just look at those colours..yummy!

Happy weekend everyone xx
