I've just booked a long weekend away in February for OH's birthday - the highlight of the weekend being whale watching in the South Island.
While OH is a very generous gift-giver himself, he doesn't like receiving them. But surely I've hit the nail on the present-head this time!??

Also planned is a trip to a winery (he lurvves wine) and some relaxing.
There's a fantastic stash shop in Picton called 'The Looking Glass' which I might have to raid while we wait for the ferry home. LOL. (Honest, there was no alternate agenda here!!... does anyone believe me?).
As for stitching... would you believe with all that new stash, I'm actually working on Damask Roses and feeling really motivated with this piece... so I'm sticking with it for now. Will post a progress pic soon.
We get high speed internet this weekend, so if I disappear for a while it's probably just high speed teething problems!
