Trunk show in Waitangi treaty grounds

WMBM on the far side of the trunk

A trunk show with a difference - that's the WMBM standing on the other side of this once giant life form in the Waitangi treaty grounds.  We visited the treaty house and saw the beautiful woven mats, cloaks, baskets and woollen warmers. We wandered the grounds through the "fern top" walk and over to the spot where the treaty was signed in 1840.  So many lines and patterns and forms for stitching - inspirational heaven. Opportunities for rubbings were everywhere - a sundial commemorating a visit by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip, plaques to mark the plantings of so many trees throughout the grounds - some have been rubbed , along with the sundial, for a future project.
