New Zealand in July part 1

 In July we went to Nelson in New Zealand where I was teaching at the NZ Embroiderers Conference and we were also trading. It was a great week and we started it with a flight from Auckland to Wellington and then to Nelson on a beautiful day

 We stayed up on the hill at Tahunanui - good memories for Ian as he spent his Christmas holidays there at the camping grounds every year

 The view from the balcony at A and T's house - they were not there and generously let us stay

 We had a couple of great meals at the Boatshed Cafe (NZ flounder of course) which was recently re-opened after the storms. Great place

 One morning we woke to cloud cover in the valley - it was certainly crisp in the mornings and cold at night - but when the sun came out.....

 We traded on the Friday Saturday and Sunday and indeed right through but on Monday and Tuesday I taught my workshop - Seeing the Leaves through the Trees - to a lovely group of people - here they are working away and and always, my table is the super messy one.

 More people at work.

 Here I am showing the class how to put their books together - they worked really well and there were some wonderful pages being created. I was impressed with how much they did in the two days - I know that I am not a prolific person in a workshop - I tend to sit and think and ponder on things

Below are some of the pages created, samples made and two people finished their books - I hope all the others do before too long. I don't always run workshops where we actually complete things. We covered quite a large number of different techniques in two days.

Then I had to pack it all away for the next two day workshop but as you can see, there was lots of productivity here.

Those beautiful pages of leaves make me so envious of your students. They have produced such wonderful work - very inspiring too.
New Zealand must be such a beautiful country. I have seen some photos where it looks almost like the UK but it's scenery is very varied, which must make a visit all the more fascinating.
