Rotorua Nursing School Korowai

Last week I delivered the korowai hihima for the nursing school in Rotorua. I was on a tour of friends and family with my mother for her 90 th birthday. It was the first time she had been on a marae so another new experience for her. After the powhiri and blessing the past students and lecturers of the school tried on the cloak and lots of photos were taken. It was well received, which was a relief. 

Even my niece, Rachel, got to try on the cloak as a past student. We are all so proudof her doing so well in her nursing so I'm glad she got the chance to wear it for a little while. 

Now that's all over I'm having a rest from a lot of weaving until next year.
