Last weekend I went with hubby and son down to Queenstown for a few nights.  Apart from the flights either being cancelled on the way down or delayed on the way home, everything went well.

Queenstown at this time of year is wonderful with all the autumn colours, especially in Arrowtown. We were also lucky that it wasn't that cold either and made it before the big snow which is sure to happen soon.

If you ever make it to us over here in little old New Zealand you have to make sure you visit Queenstown and its surrounding towns.  And yes I found two little patchwork shops I visited, much to hubby's despair.


  1. Thankyou for the beautiful photos. We were lucky enough to visit the South Island last year and I hope I can go again one day. Arrowtown was one of my favourite places. NZ is such a gorgeous country.

  2. Gorgeous photos, New Zealand is on my bucket list of places to visit so I will get there soon I hope x thanks for sharing your wonderful photos.


I love to read your fab comments.
