Yesterday I was very saddened to hear of the passing of one of the ladies I taught to weave in Dunedin.  Maryanne was a very determined lady who didn't give up despite having arthritis in her hands and cancer in her body.  Our sympathy and love go out to her family.

last for 2011

Well it's December at last and we are all finishing up things.
In the past month I have finished a big korowai

and a small one with peacock feathers I got from 'Feathergirl'.  I am convinced this is the best way to get feathers and highly recommend them.

Also made another knitted doll and a few other small things I forgot to photograph and have forgotten about.
Now , of course, I have sore wrists and will rest up a bit although I really would like to finish another big one I have on the go.  It has a large taniko at the bottom and other than that is quite plain.  I would like to finish it before the big move to Dunedin in January.  If you know of anyone in Dunedin or come to that anywhere in the South Island who would like to learn to weave, I am open to getting a group together.  Also if there is a marae where ladies (or men) would like to learn and also make a large whanau korowai I am open to travelling and helping out.  My e-mail is robin@softsystems.co.nz.
