So excited to announce our cruise for the Fall 2019.  We will be boarding a beautiful ship - The Azamara Pursuit.  This beauty will handle 690 passengers - large enough to skirt us around the various islands and ports of call  and small enough to still be intimate!  My kind of environment!
 12 Days - Italy, Malta and Spain!  - October 24 - November 4, 2019!

I think I could sleep here

And my goodness the Ports of Call are amazing - from Rome to Barcelona!  I've never been to Spain!  I'm excited! I might need to add a day or two on the ends of this one - well, since I'll already be there - - - 

If you are not already a follower, hop over to Needles 'N Fins Stitching Adventures and join up.  The brochure will be downloaded there this coming week. You'll find all the info about the various Ports of Call, the pricing of staterooms and be sure to contact our travel agent Liz at for more information and to get on the list.

Don't hesitate on this one.  Remember the Danube was sold out so we could not add anymore great friends. We don't want to leave anyone behind on this one!

I'm getting ready to head to the West Coast to teach the wonderful Winter Cardinal for the Space Needlers ANG Chapter in Seattle.  Really looking forward to this one. Anxious to place some faces with names too.  Kay Fite has really been working on this adventure and class for her group.  I know they appreciate all her efforts and dedication.

I never tire of this piece.  One of my favorites.

Also next week will be time to share peeks of the Online Mystery Class sessions. I had a hiccup on one of the classes (we all knew it would happen - right?).  Seems I miss numbered a lesson and in my efforts to correct that issue I mistakenly posted the lesson that will be up this week!  Oh well nobody was killed because of it - I don't think.  And I believe that I have the ducks in a row now.  They just got their lesson early.

Be sure to scroll down to last week's blog for the 2019 Agenda of Online Mystery Classes.  There are so many fun things in store.  I believe I added one after the initial posting.  The Gossips

Does this not just scream my name all over it?  I can't wait to get it.  It will be available through Strictly Christmas .

And don't forget that the clock is ticking for registration at Blue Bonnet Studios Retreat for this fun JP Needlepoint class - Captain Blackbeak's Wench.  Is she not just full of it!

There is so much to share with this piece.  Check out all the classes and receive registration form over at We'd love to have you join us. The Wench is a four-day class - February 17-20, 2019 in Houston, TX.

Okay that's it for today!  Have a great week and remember to always Stitch with a Smile!
