Teaching in New Zealand

What a treat it was to have been asked by Sherelyn to teach a class sponsored by her shop, Heirlooms, in Napier, New Zealand. Sherelyn picked a wonderful class venue, Mission Winery.  How much fun it was for me to present Fruit of the Vine at a winery!

In my next blog post, I'll show photos of Heirlooms.  Today's blog post contains miscellaneous class photos.

Here we are headed off in the morning.


Almost there...


And here are some classroom photos.




Here are some views of the shop boutique and also some of the "show and tell".






Here are some of the class participants.  I'm sorry I missed getting  photos of everyone.






Don't let the seriousness in the previous photo fool you.  Below are the the same two ladies
right after I took the previous photo.



Here is Sherelyn loading up her car at the end of the day.


Thank you to everyone for a wonderful day,  but especially thank you to Sherelyn for inviting me to teach for you!

First I was amazed to see all the greenery on the trees. This winter has been such a long, cold one and to see the beautiful trees and grass was uplifting. But, then to scroll down and see all the stitchers and their accomplishments was even better. Thank you Ellen for sharing.
