a bit of advertising

Just a brief message for today.
We're very happy as local Artist Pete Morris, who also writes a blog about local art and craft did a little write-up on the CBA on his blog. This is the link. 

So thank you very much Pete, to have this sort of encouragement and local support means a lot to us!

Oh, and by the way, we noticed that the lovely people of Grindz Cafe have left their 'award' up where we put it.
Another big thanks! It actually looks really great on their door.

warm and wooly regards from a happy Missy Rogue Knitta and Mista Slip Stitch

Door Knob Award of Excellence No.2

The CBA proudly presents

the second Doorknob Award of Excellence

Finally, here it is. The second Doorknob Award of Excellence goes to the fabulous Grindz Cafe on Tauranga's 1st Ave.

Well what can we say? As much as we love Art & Craft, wool and yarn bombing, New Zealand and our precious environment and a lot of other things, we do love to eat. And we do love a good coffee. What would a keen craftster (or anyone, really) do without good food and a regular dose of caffeine? Exactly, not much.

So, this was easy. There's no other place in Tauranga we like to go to as much as we like going to Grindz Cafe. Going to Grindz means you're in for a treat. Honestly, have you tried their Almond Torte yet? If not you've seriously missed out. And if you are a Coffee kind of person, this is definitely the place to go. In our opinion they serve the BEST coffee in town. We also love the atmosphere. There's heaps of old stuff for decoration, sofas and comfy chairs to lounge in, a fire name it. The whole cosy and sustaining package.

So, here's to Steve and Lesley Graham who keep us nourished and happy.

Thank you so much! We think you are FABULOUS!

So, Mista Slip Stitch and myself seriously hope you'll enjoy your coffee and cake at Grindz as much we do.

warm and woolly regards,
Missy Rogue Knitta

PS as always we do love your feedback, comments and suggestions. And please don't hesitate to nominate people and places for the Award!

Spring has (nearly) sprung

We love daylight saving.
We love the lighter evenings.
We love the warmer temperatures.
We love the smell of blossoms in the air.
We love the new fresh green on trees and bushes.
We just love spring.
Even if there still seems to be an awful lot of rain.

So, here's a little glimpse of our spring inspired next project.
We are aiming to have it up for Tauranga's Garden and Art Fest in November.

As always
warm and woolly regards.

PS we're still looking for peeps who always wanted to knit, tag and be happy. Please be in touch and join the Craft Bomber Association.
