The days are shorter, the temperatures have certainly dropped around here this last week
... and it's time to put another quilt on the bed!
The third week in June marks the winter solstice,
and here in NZ, as we get closer to the shortest day of the year
we rug up warm, make lots of yummy homemade soups, have pot luck dinners
and get those fires going.
One of us is also going to download all the 'outlander' series
... and keep busy making more quilts of course!
We also embrace a wee bit of tradition.
*Matariki is the Maori name for a cluster of stars (also known as the Pleiades)
which appear in the night sky late May or early June
For many, it signals the start of a new year ... and the beginning of winter
... and a time to sing & dance... and to be grateful for what we have
Linking up for 'show & tell' with Lorna over here
