Today was a little sad, but very heart warming too. I saw a post on Face Book late last night from a beautiful organisation called Angel Gowns NZ - check out her face book page, amazing lady! She was looking for a woven basket with a lid for a precious angel baby. I got in contact with Kirstin and offered to create an Ipu Taonga - a "treasured things" basket for the family.
I used flax flowers and beautiful polished Paua pieces. Up nice and early this morning to finish it off with lovely soft mint green muslin inside. Popped it on the courier this morning for the family with a wee tear in my eye. It is always sad to be creating these ketes for families but also a huge honour to be able to make something special and unique.... each one with a little bit of my heart tucked inside.
