Lines, patterns, colours. Sometimes a quilter’s holiday snaps focus on things that don’t interest the average tourist.
Take this wall down by the docks in Auckland, for instance. It looked like it had been made out of old weathered packing crates.
Then there was this building nearby. Patterns of lines and colours. Very cool.
Or maybe some kind of alien life form? So pretty!
We took the ferry to Devonport quite unexpectedly, having to fill in a couple of hours before our harbour cruise one morning in Auckland. Imagine my delight in finding a whole row of poles along the street covered in crochet! Naturally I had to embarrass my family by taking scads of photos.
Aren’t those frogs just the cutest?? I just love that there are people out there who see a whole bunch of plain poles and think wouldn’t it be great to cover those suckers in crochet? So whimsically pointless, but why the hell not?
Further north I was taken by the light through foliage, particularly the marvellous umbrella-like spokes of the ferns.
