Below are a few recent purchases, a few from our trip to Nelson last October (Red Neurdorf dishes and Turquiose Jug) and my trip up the coast the other weekend. (Rimu dish - $6 at Otaki Markets, Pink Gravy Jug - $10 from Statue Bargain Barn). I love a bargain, and I am a complete hoarder, but I have been missing my stuff for the past two years as our house has been under renovation. Well, 18 months of good intention and 6 months of weekend renovation. The new kitchen has been in the Garage in its packaging, the oven has been there for over a year! Oh the anticipation!

I got this huge stash of cute retro print fabric from spotlight on super mega sale ($3 per meter!!)- It's quilting fabric but I have no urge to quilt yet, only to make toys. But I really wanted something to wear, so I made this obi wrap belt. I kind of made it up as I went along and it turned out well. It has red detail stitching on it with a black backing and the tie wraps from the back to the front. I just measured my waist and made it that long with ties one and a half times as long each. not sure if that makes sense. I also made the necklace out of old buttons, I have made lots of button necklaces but none so simple. I have decided I quite like simple.
