I am about to leave on my 5th trip to Australia. It has become an autumn ritual for me heading ‘down under’ to teach a range of courses just as the temperature drops here in the UK! Great timing!
My bags are packed with clothes, embroidery samples, threads, course notes and hopefully everything else I will need for the 6 week trip. I start in Perth and after a couple of days to recover from the flight I will teach ‘Colourful Landscapes’
I then move down to Margaret River for the second course, which is called ‘Up Close and Personal’, the detailed study of flowers.
So after 2 weeks in WA I fly to Sydney and from there will spend a few days in the Blue Mountains. A well earned rest to recharge my batteries I think!
My final destination in Australia is Port Macquarie, on the coast north of Sydney, I will teach 2 more courses at Stitched n Framed, ‘Seascapes’ and ‘Up Close and Personal’ for the second time.
The final leg of the journey, and a new experience for me is New Zealand. I will be on North Island for 2 weeks. Starting in the Bay of Islands then on to Hastings for my final course ‘Flowers and Foliage’ and finally a few days in Wellington. Phew!
Quite an adventure to look forward to, seeing old friends and hopefully making some new ones too! I plan to post more photos and updates each week.
