Back from travel

My sewing fingers are now ready to begin again.
You saw the top below in September while I was trying finish off my study. The study is finished. In the mean time we've been to New Zealand 3 times. Yep. Two visits were all about rugby and last weekend it was a family birthday to celebrate DMIL's 70th in the sleepy seaside town of Raglan.

The basic top pattern I used for this was Kwik Sew 1997 and I've insert an invisible zip because I wanted the zip feature. It's not a feature on the pattern.
So I took this top with me to NZ on the weekend. While we had 32C weather in Sydney, I was still wearing thermal layers in NZ. I know you can't take photos while in Customs, but I think taking pics at this area with tikkis is allowed.

I'm not into Rugby but here are some pics I took at the matches.
These were some Argentina supporters - the "party pumas".
The real Argentina fans were loud, fun and kept singing throughout the match.

We got to see the All Black perform the Haka twice.
These supporters looked like something from 'Where's Wally"...

Here's a beach at Raglan. They have good coffee.
And I did get to buy fabric when we were in New Zealand.
