Meme Memoir

I got tagged by Peacefulknitter for a "6 word memoir" meme that is doing the rounds on blogosphere at the moment. You can read her one here, the idea seems to have come from this article and is was great timing as I was hoping to blog a FO but I haven't quite finished. Thanks S!

Here's mine:

Taku manawa, taku tau, taku whanau

whanau acrylic

It translates as "My heart, my love, my family" and is written in Te Reo Maori. My DH and I both have Maori anscestry and my children all have Maori names. My iwi (tribe) is Kai Tahu from the South Island/Te Wai Pounamu (hence my talk of 'going home'). The artwork "whanau" is by Lisa Ormsby

Here are the guidelines, should you choose to participate in this yourself:

  • Write your own six word memoir.
  • Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
  • Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to this original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
  • Tag five more blogs with links.
I hate choosing! but I would like to tag TwentyCentmixture, Tales of the Redheaded Devil Child, Joli House, Sharonnz and Dollarknits. If this isn't your cup of tea then feel free to ignore :)
