The weekend of 11/12 January 2014

I'm not sure where the month has gone and  apologies
 for the slowness in getting the latest lot of photos up!

 This is Monte Nassar from Toronto, Canada. She was travelling on a 
tour bus to Paihia, which stopped at The Town Basin for a  break.

 Visitors from Auckland.

 Elly, in the grey cardigan, is one of the tapestry hostesses. 
She bought her sister-in-law Jackie Boeyen, from Nelson and daughter 
Tayler to see the tapestry and both were keen to do some work on it.
Tayler and her mum came up for the Colgate Games Athletics Meet.
Elly showing Tayler how to ensure her weaving is the 
correct tension. Too tight and the warps get pulled together.
Thanks for your participation!
