Some more Needlework Cruise photos !

This lovely embroidered bag, name tag and hanky were given to us as we registered on Day 1 of the Needlework Cruise ....

Our first class with Robyn Alexander ... and here is Sylvia (and Jane looking the other way) with Jenny and Margaret in the background ...

This was where our classes were held ... look at the gorgeous view out the floor to ceiling windows ... 

We docked in Noumea and ended up staying 2 days because of mechanical issues .... this photo was taken from the town and shows the enormous ship in the distance at the dock ....

After classes in the afternoon we of course sat and enjoyed a quiet stitch ... here is Sylvia, Sue and Jan spending some quality stitching time .... with another gorgeous view out the window! 

On our last night, we enjoyed a presentation, some show and tell, and meeting all the tutors ....

And our dining table each night ... with some old and some new friends in stitching ....  Sylvia, me, Robyn, Jenny, Carolyn, Margaret, Jenny, Jenny, Mavis and Susanne .... three Jennys at one table is confusing!!   Lovely to spend time with you all!!   We certainly had some laughs!! 

Sylvia, me, Robyn and Jenny on our last night ...

And as I left the ship on Tuesday morning I turned around and took this photo ....  this is the reason why it doesn't fit under the Sydney Harbour Bridge !!
