A day of shopping

Yes I'm still here !!I have been busily stitching away this week but still cant show you any pics as I haven't gotten my camera back yet.
Yesterday Sarah (D1) and I went into Auckland city for a day of shopping ,Sarah wanted to visit all the Skate/Surf shops and I went to the Embroidery store ,this stores is in a lovely old building with several other lovely stores that we enjoy visiting one is Isabelle Harris which is beautiful store specializing in soaps, handcreams etc ,we managed to find a nice gift for my SIL who's birthday is on Sunday.Then it was upstairs to find a few stitching gifts which was not difficult even though this store is fairly small she stocks some nice gift pieces like needle holders etc.After that we shopped for a new pair of shorts for Sarah and she also bought a new T-Shirt by then I was shopped out so it was off home for us.
Well not much more to add I'm not sure what I'll stitch on today I have an exchange piece I need to start but I dont think I'm in the mood for that today we'll see later on .Take care. 45/50
