Hello fellow embroiderers, Jim and I have returned from the cruise which cruised to Singapore, We left from Sydney then sailed to Brisbane then Airlie Beach, which we found a bit battered after the cyclone hit there a few weeks before!

I was teaching on the days we were at sea, then we had a stop over at Cairns, Port Douglas, then cruised over to Darwin before sailing up to Singapore.

The ladies participating in the embroidery classes had a lot of fun, plus the teachers just love teaching enthusiastic students, some were lucky to finish some of their projects, whilst others will take home their ufo’s!

We can all start saving for the next cruise, which is already organised to cruise to Seattle via New Caledonia, Loyalty Island, Vanuatu, Fiji and Hawaii.  Leaving from Sydney on the 22nd April – 14th May 2018.

Find out more by going to Simon and Maureen Laughlin’s website,au   also on face book!  The pictures shown are the projects I’ll be teaching on this cruise!

After the beautiful weather on the cruise we came home to the onset of winter, so the tracksuits and wooly jumpers have come out the wardrobe.  I have been gardening,  making up  kit orders and seeing the family which is always  great!

Have a look on the web site under Family Photo’s

I hope you are all embroidering madly and finishing off the UFO’S it’s really wonderful to see lots of retired ladies having this wonderful interest in their life and keeping their hands and minds active!

We hope to engage the young ones to take up embroideries, I know how busy they are holding down jobs and running their children to and fro to school and hobbies but it’s really important to keep these skills alive!

Here I am teaching Telka (97 yrs) Wow she is known by most of the teachers because she has been in our class at some time over the years. She is an inspiration to all of us, she may walk with the aid of a walker, but she is as sharp as a tack and we all love and respect her! We all have her as an inspiration to all of us!

Hope you’re all well and happy!


Best Wishes
