Trip Around the World with Ann Herrick

The May workshop was held on the 12th May.
It was great to get the cut out instructions in advance
so we could spend the day sewing.

The sewing wasn't quite complete at the end of the day
so Ann demonstrated how to put the blocks together.
Thanks to Ann Herrick for a great day. 

Thankyou to Denise for keeping us fed and watered.
