Sorry for the delay in getting these photos posted!
I had the work computer gobble some of the pics I'd
taken and was SO upset and frustrated I hadn't been
able to post the rest ...until now. Thankfully, one of
our visitors came back and had taken photos on their
phone so I was able to arrange getting a copy of them
to replace the ones I'd lost.So, without further ado..
This is Brittany Trask with her Nana, Barbara Taylor.
Brittany is a student at Auckland University studying
Marine Science and was up visiting her Nana for
a break. Barbara has previously brought in other
grand-daughters to see the tapestry and do some weaving.

see the Tapestry Project and done a little weaving
