Needlework Cruise

Back to some stitching news after the excitement of becoming grandparents ....   The Needlework Cruise on board the "Voyager of the Seas" was organised by Needlework Tours and Cruises and was a fantastic experience and it was great to catch up with lots of old friends and make lots of new ones too!!    I have taken lots of photos and will share some with you for the next few days ... this was our view as we left Sydney Harbour and were dining in the dining room .... not a bad view!!

Just one of many spectacular desserts we enjoyed !

The view from Cloud Nine lounge over Auckland Harbour as we were leaving ...

A visit to Kiwi 360 ...

Beautiful flowers in the park ...

More exquisite flowers ....

We had a lovely visit to Nancys Needlework which was gorgeous ....   a little shopping done here!!

The lovely Gail Pan, myself and the gorgeous Judy Newman in front of the colourful fabrics at Nancys! 

So many walls of glorious colours !

Dinner one night on board with Sylvia and Rose ...

Daisy, Wendy, Lisa, and Chrissie .... dining buddies !!

Somewhere in NZ ....

Classes were great and this is one of my class of ladies enjoying their class in the Magic Flute Restaurant .... note the chandeliers and how big the room is !!

Some ladies by the window had fantastic sea views all day long !

Annette enjoyed exploring my Canvas Work classes !

We had a fabulous visit to Ribbon Rose which was another great needlework shop!

Beautiful flowers and displays all round ...

And some of us had our photo taken with the owners before leaving ...   note there were shopping bags hidden behind us !!    Lots more photos to come !!
