Angel Korowai

On the Tuesday before I left on my trip the Ocean View Weaving ladies took our wee angel korowai to the Queen Mary Hospital along with another lady whose group make lovely cocoons to receive the wee babes that pass away. We were surprised and delighted that there were quite a number of people there to witness the handing over and blessing of the gifts. It was a simple ceremony but we felt it a real privilege that we were thanked in this manner.

I also made two korowai to be used with the wahakura where live babies can be photographed. 

A very special morning.
