Rod and Huia

A late Christmas present arrived yesterday for my Mr Rockstitch. I found it on Toggle an online gift shop in NZ that has very cool selection of local craft and art.

I thought it was a very clever idea from Aimee Gruar of Birdsong. She has sourced abandoned and near extinct vinyl records, then cuts silhouettes of birds out of them. Mr R's is an extinct Huia. It arrives in it's original record sleeve. Fantastic. Then all you have to do is blu tac it to the wall.

Perfect. And a little bit of NZ for us.
