On Saturday, Miss B and I traveled to Hamilton to see the Roman Machines Exhibition at the Waikato Museum. Miss B is fascinated by Roman and Greek history and myths. It was a very interactive exhibtion, we were able to see and try on old Roman armour and try operating some of the old style pulleys and grinders. We attempted building an arch too. Another exhibition running was a display of vintage linen and needlework. Some of the embroidery was simply stunning as was the collection of ladies house bags - these were often used as project bags for knitting or embroidery when visiting..
Lunch was eaten while sitting on a park bench watching the Waikato River flow by. Of course a trip to a new to me, fabric shop was had too. Yes a little stash enhancement was done.
What did you do this weekend?
