Cruising… Needlework Tours Style!

Our happy band of stitchers set off from Sydney April 19th, cruising north up the east coast of Australia and from there to our final destination, Singapore. Six of those days, we devoted to the embroidery projects we had planned for this trip. There were three options: The Beaded Vase of Flowers, Monet’s Garden and The Protea Basket.

Embroidery Cruise Ship

A fortnight sea voyage, what a dream! A cruise  leaving Sydney Australia, meandering along the beautiful Eastern Coast of Australia and then heading on to Singapore. Six of those fourteen days are dedicated to stitching and embroidery.

And I will be aboard! I ‘ll be teaching as part of the Needlework Tours Cruise in 2017, 19th April  to 3rd May fully escorted.

Protea BasketI have prepared three projects; each one very different from each other. One was featured in Inspirations Issue 88, the other two are brand new designs.
