I just finished 3 days of teaching on Ashburton for Rachel Maw. I taught the Peacock and Small Flower embellishment class. It was fun to see all the different variations of threads that were used on the pieces along with dimensional stitches.
I left the South Island yesterday and spent a few hours in Auckland with Robyn before flying to Los Angeles. We had lunch and a walk in Cornwall Park which is a fabulous park in Aukland full of sheep, cows, amazing old trees and spring budding flowers.
It was a lovely trip. Many thanks to Robyn and Rachel for organizing the classes and to all my creative students form Australia and New Zealand who made it all worthwhile. I have an overnight flight from LA to Chicago then onto Akron in the morning. I will have time to wash my clothes, get a haircut and pack my bags for our trip to Orvieto, Italy. Looking forward to meeting all my students and so excited Kelly my daughter will been a part of this adventure.
