'Around the world blog hop'.
I have followed Shane and her beautiful blog for a while now and I always love visiting her. She shares wonderful photography, mosaics, inspiration, lovely projects she is working on and seeing her wonderful photos from France, when she visits her family there.

As part of this blog hop I have questions to answer
What are you working on right now?
I am knitting booties for a friend that has had a baby - there is something nice and relaxing about knitting and I find it a good way to spend the time on the ferry crossing, when I go across to the City.
Another work in progress is an Old Fashioned Antique birdhouse cross stitch - it is fine work and I really do need to wear my glasses when I am working on it.
I also enjoy making Mohair bears - have taken a little break from them and will hopefully get back into it again soon.
My daughter has designed a new web-site for me which looks much cleaner and more how I would like it to look.
Just need to get a web designer now to make it a working site.
Why do I create what I do?
As a child I loved to sew clothes and knit for my dolls and today I like to have something on the go and keep myself busy with creating something or working on a project.
Now I will share a few photos from around Waiheke Island, where I live. There is something wonderful about seeing the tall ships which often sail around our waters.
Summertime on the Island is a great place to be, where you can swim at the many gorgeous beaches with lovely white sand and clear blue sea. Onetangi beach below is the beach we mostly go to and it is a relaxing way to spend the afternoon with a picnic lunch and a swim
For the energetic there are lots of wonderful walking tracks that overlook the most fabulous views. In Oneroa bay, many people come and enjoy the holidays on their boats moored out on the water
I now want to introduce you to Sarah, whose wonderful blog http://downbytheseadorset.blogspot.co.nz/
I love to visit.
She shares her stunning photography from Dorset, where she lives.
Love the ripples on the water and the wonderful boats, on a trip to Weymouth, she shared recently.
Next is Ana from the beautiful blog A petite Cottage - she really does have a Home sweet home. She loves to sew and decorate and is always finding some great things when out thrifting.
My third friend is Claudia, who lives in Germany.
Here is her blog http://nunusgarnundstofflabor.blogspot.co.nz/ and go and say hello to her also.
Claudia shares her gorgeous garden and is a wonderful knitter, and makes the sweetest bears.
Thank you Shane for inviting me to the blog tour and to Sarah, Ana, and Claudia for playing along and continuing the blog tour next Monday.
Also I appreciate all for stopping by and hope it will be a wonderful new week for all.
