Out and about in New Zealand

Today we are in Paeroa
There are many antique shops here and Eve managed to get through four and found many boxes of postcards to look through. She was a very happy tourist!!!
I was in and out of the shops, I find it hard standing waiting so I did a  it of looking around, sadly there is no quilt shop here!!
But I went and had a look at the river
For some reason the tablet has decided this photo needs to be sideways!!!!
This area was mined heavily back in the 1800's for gold. There are lots of rusty bits around from the old works.
I have done a little stitching
Two arms of a star!!
And some stitchery,  ost of which I did on the plane coming over. It has been 27 deg C and humid today so it was not a sit and sew in the car day today.
Off to Hobbiton tomorrow.
Happy sewing.
