More Hobbiton 😍 the first video is Sam’s house 😊 the second video is out in front of The Green Dragon, and the next two are a full walk through of The Green Dragon, where we had meat pies and stout that is only brewed and served in Hobbiton 😍 Also, cat tax at the end is Pickles who is a permanent resident of Hobbiton. The most patient cat I’ve ever met lol #thegreendragoninn #itcomesinpints #isthisreallife #canistayforever @hobbitontours

I’ve been sitting on this for the better part of a week because I still can’t believe this happened, but I went to Hobbiton, guys. We had our picture taken in front of Bag End...😭😁❤️ It absolutely poured for most of our time there, but it was still amazing. Sorry in advance for all the shots of peoples’ butts. I’m short lol. #dreamsdocometrue #imnotcryingyourecrying #lotr #wetaworkshop #productiondesign 😍 @hobbitontours

We walked around a geothermal park in Rotorua too. Amazing colors with the mineral deposits and a mind-boggling quantity of energy literally boiling the earth and water up through the crust. Btw, that last video is in fact boiling mud, and the surface temps on most of those pools is 100 C (212 F) 😱 @kyleologist thought you might enjoy this 😉

Did some horsing around in Rotorua day before yesterday and explored the small zoo there. Such a beautiful place, and the geothermal pools are lovely 😊 Btw, the horse Will is riding was Arwen’s horse in Lord of the Rings. His name is Doughboy and he was only 3 when they started filming 🤭

We had a fantastic day in Auckland yesterday watching an intense game of rugby finals and playing mini golf at possibly the coolest bar I’ve ever been to @holeymoleygolf

#monmetsphotochallenge Day 20: Mirrors, and a really cool painting of a tuatara (an endemic NZ reptile). Day 21: Food. Folks, I had the best cup of coffee yesterday morning made with some of the tastiest milk. And that bagel and lox with eggs 😍 I didn’t know NZ food was going to be this amazing just being so fresh

#octoberphotochallenge #monmetsphotochallenge Day 14: Ghost. Sometimes ghosts are just memories that catch you off guard, stashed away like trinkets kept over the years

A gift and my first foray into tiny piecing, unintentionally. I didn’t realize when I started that the block in the book was pretty much to scale 😧 The markings on those cutting boards is 1”🤪 Thank goodness I eavesdropped on Gretchen’s classes when I worked weekends @orangequiltbee She’s amazing at this kind of stuff. It made all the difference #starchallthethings #civilwarreproductionfabric #itsybitsy #smallfriends @martingaletpp #4x5quiltblockanthology
