NZ - More Bits and Pieces

Beautiful tiled walls along a narrow street in the heart of Christchurch

I did manage to get to one Quilt Exhibition, but was only allowed to photograph the advertising board. Excellent exhibition of small art quilts.

Exhibition of the NZ and Invercargil Embroiders Guild. Beautiful old sampler pieces. Came across the exhibition by chance as it was teaming with rain and we walked into the museum for shelter.
It's amazing what you find when you least expect it.

Found these 3 little pigs in a laneway in Arrowtown, I wanted to take one home but they weren't for sale. They were made of various pieces of corrugated iron and tin.

  1. Jenni,

    You found some really interesting bits and pieces. Loved the tiles and the photos of Milford Sound, Mount Cook and my favourite penguins were stunning

  3. Those tiles could inspire a quilt.

    If you really want a corrugated iron animal, the Fitzroy Nursery has them for sale. I don't know that I've seen a pig, but they do have sheep. Maybe they do requests?
