Grow your Blog



Hi, my name is Michell and this year I have decided to join the Grow Your Blog party Vicki from Two Bags Full is holding.  
I am a Registered Nurse working in a small hospital in Taupo, New Zealand.  The views are stunning were I actually live on a sheep and beef farm about an hours drive away from Taupo of Mount Ruapehu




 and on a fine day from Taupo the views are great too (just got to get some pictures).  I have only lived in this area just under three months now.  Previously I was in Gisborne where it has some pretty stunning views too




I have been blogging since 2010 and try to do a few post each month.  I enjoy sewing and stitchery and here are a few of my favourite things I have made
















I also do cross stitch but lately that has been on the back burner but have a few projects on the go.  Here are some projects I have completed










I will now start looking at all these other blogs joining in, as I know there are many to get through.

Thank you for looking at my blog and if you want to follow me I have a few follow buttons on the side to choose from such as Google Friend Connect or you could just click on the logo below to follow me on Bloglovin if you like




or even Instagram
