More Cruise Crafts


IMG_1120 I’m still busy putting together my next craft cruise projects. This clock is just one craft that I’ve been working on. I’m not certain if it will make it to the final suitcase as I have really struggled with the clock mechanism. I suspect it’s a case of buy cheap get rubbish so I will need to review what to do. This is something that I embroidered but I did plan for my class members to up cycle vintage linens. As I have already bought thirty embroidery hoops I may need some inspiration as to how to use them! I will let you know how it goes. By the way has anyone got any good project ideas using thirty embroidery hoops?


Eighty eight not out!


imageLast week was my Mums 88th birthday. Sis and I took her to Blackpool for a few days and bought afternoon tea in the Ballroom of Blackpool Tower. I’ve blogged about this before but it is worth a mention again. The tea was great but I’m afraid that we had already attacked the sandwiches when I took the picture. You can see the beautiful dance floor that is World known in Ballroom circles. There were a lot of couples enjoying the organ music. In fact it made me want to learn to dance! 

Sis, Mum and I enjoyed admiring the dresses and shoes, specially worn to dance in. There were old couples,young people,Grandparents teaching Grandchildren to dance. There was waltzing, jiving,Samba, Military Two step and many more dances that I couldn’t name never mind dance.

We had a great day and, most importantly, Mum enjoyed her 88th birthday.
