Finished Melanie's and started Russell's

Haven't written for a while but I have finished Melanie's cloak and she was pleased with it. It was finished by the end of march as I had hoped.

Now I am on to the next kakahu. This one is for a Kuia's 80th birthday and I hope, for use on her marae. The taaniko pattern was drawn up by her son Russell. It is very complicated and although not symmetrical it gives the impression of symmetry.  I started last Wednesday and a week later I have 3/4 completed it. Approximately 40 hours work with 4 colours. 

But now its Easter and we are due a holiday, so everything will go on the back burner while I enjoy time with my family. 
Happy Easter everyone.
