Just returned from the Stitchin'Heaven, Moda 2012 Quilting Cruise to Honduras, Belize and Cozumel Mexico in the Western Caribbean. As they would say in Belize,
It was Unbelizable!
I had such an amazing time with all the quilting ladies, Deb, Clay and Rachael,
and my new friend and roommate, Sandra. She was so much fun!
and very hepful (that's helpful in Texan).
The first two days at sea we had class and the ladies stitched their little hearts out on the Blissful Day quilt. (We still have a couple left on our web site)
I taught one class,
Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister taught another
and Debbie Maddie taught another class.
The quilters stayed in the same place and we rotated class rooms.
The ladies could sew until midnight and some of them did!
The quilt blocks on my quilt could be arranged different ways to make the quilt unique to each quilter.
They were very creative.
We had fun prizes for some lucky winners.
In the evenings we dined in style with fabulous food and enjoyed great entertainment!
On day three we docked in Honduras.
We had a little beach time after it rained.
It was cloudy, but the air was warm and it felt so good to dig our toes into the sand!
The next day we docked in Belize. We went to the Belize Zoo, yes that is a Boa snake that we could hold... if we wanted to... and no, I did not want to...
We saw monkeys, crocodiles, iguana, and many more exotic animals.
As you can see, not much sun, but much warmer than the weather I left in Idaho, that's for sure.
Back on the boat for our last day of sewing and a farewell party.
There were prizes for everyone and some ladies even won quilts.
Robin won my quilt!
Thanks ladies! I have a whole new bunch of quilting friends.
And a special thanks to Deb at Stitchin' Heaven for the opportunity of a lifetime!
Get your quilting friends together and take a quilting cruise, you will love it!
Check out the cruise slide show.
The yummy chocolate dessert is mine... wish I had some right now!
