We hit the jackpot at the op shop today. The yarn is just what I need for the rigid heddle loom which I got for my birthday. And the rag rug book should help me make a dent in my scraps pile... #opshopping #crafting #textiles #yarn

Birthday outing no. 2: Alan Gibbs’ Sculpture Farm. #40thbirthday #staycation #myaklsummer #KaiparaHarbour #sculpture #modernart #landscapes #nofilter
Happy birthday to me! My chronological age finally matches my mental age! #40thbirthday #flowers #shoefie
Now I know why my mother grimaced when I said this dress used bias binding! #dressmaking #learning #sewing #stretchgoals
Attempting darts for the first time... (and yes, I had to switch material as the clouds were going to be vertical on the skirt!) #dressmaking #sewing #learning

I caught not one but five crickets in the paddling pool yesterday and popped them into Hedgie’s cage. I hope he liked them. #hedgehog #rescuepet #hedgehogsnacks #insects #nature
Sunny spells at the beach. #weatherbyJo #myaklsummer #beachlife
Had a lovely day out today with my mother. We saw The Post (****) and then had lunch at a lovely cafe before taking a stroll on the beach. We even found a random flower and vegetable show to visit and picked up some tips on preparing onions for a show (you should polish them, apparently). #staycation #myaklsummer #40thbirthday #middleagealltheway

Exploring Silo Park and riding the trams. #dayout #Auckland #myaklsummer #staycation #heritage #industrialarchitecture
Found this lovely little whare on the beach at Orakei. The builder makes them to pass the time whilst his children are at the beach. #tinyhouse #beachlife #driftwood

A sunny Sunday. #yay #weatherbyJo #myaklsummer
Every year, amongst the many failures and disappointments in my garden, there are some superstar crops. This has been the year for potatoes, basil and chilli. #growyourownfood #gardening #mygarden #highsandlows #chilli

Working on my next dress. The skirt is so full that I had to tape two pieces of pattern paper together! #dressmaking #beginner #learning #retro #vintage #1950s
The birthday holiday has begun. A swim in the school pool and now I’m going to sit and read the paper whilst the dinner cooks itself. #40thbirthday #myaklsummer #sunshine #myhappyplace
