Well, it has been a wet, cold and miserable Queens Birthday weekend. Alas I was sick for most of it, and most of last week. As a result I have nothing new to blog about in terms of purchases. I did pick up the knitting needles again, and have finished one fingerless glove! It was too cold to sit in the sunroom and work on Ema's top, or refashioning the "Made in China" top, or fix up the loosened curls on the A-may-zing coat.
As it happens, when I was finally feeling better I went out to Port Chalmers to get groceries and decided to call in to Box of Birds which is now located on corner of main street, near port entrance. It was bitterly cold and miserable - the shop was a real treasure trove of items, including some awesome coats and furs, but it was very cold inside, and therefore I did not feel inclined to linger. To my delight as I was leaving I saw Ema, with her mother. She was trying on an awesome pair of denim boots.
