I'm in the middle of making a lot of things but don't have much to show you at present, so here's a couple of shots of the snow-covered mountains that I can see from my upstairs. Part of the reason that I bought this house!
These are the foothills of the Southern Alps, New Zealand's huge mountain chain. Click on the link to see how these mountains dominate the South Island. I live about 1/3 of the way down the island, slightly north and inland from Banks Peninsula on the right-hand (eastern) side. Prior to starting this blog, I lived in Lyttelton, which is the harbour at the top left of this next photo of the Peninsula. It's a sunken volcano, as is Akaora harbour at the bottom of the photo.
