Much New Zealand law has to comply with the Treaty and all Government Departments must include acknowledgment to the Treaty.
New Zealand Day was promoted a few years ago to emphasise that we are now a multinational community and February the 6th is a celebration for us all.
I celebrated by starting on another UFO or as I have recently leaned (WISP )work in slow progress).
I was going fine as I discovered there was far less to do than I remembered. Completed the three last triangles which needed a bit of piecing as the fabric was a bit short for the whole quilt (probably too hard basket at the time!) and was merrily sewing along when my machine packed a sad and wouldn't go.
I have had no trouble with my machine and love it to bits but this problem has happened a few times so ff to the shop on Tuesday.
