Hobart and cruising home

We had the best weather in Hobart which was our last Port of Call on our stitching cruise. Those in the know suggested we head to Daci and Daci Bakers for morning tea and it was really good! Even with all the food on the ship, this was a great place for morning tea and lunch. We headed there first and then met again for lunch. It was lovely to catch up with Helen Stubbings there as well. 

 Helen gave Fiona and I a lift to the Quilted Crow shop and it was amazing. The shop, run by Deirdre and Leonie, is in a gorgeous old church and there was so much to tempt us. Lots of beautiful displays of fabric, woven wool felt, patterns and even giftware

 Here we are with Deirdre and Leonie.

 We then headed back to town for lunch at Daci and Daci and then walked to Salamanca and enjoyed browsing the lovely shops.
 After that we walked back to the ship and enjoyed the lovely views.

 The last days on board were a chance to relax and stitch. We did have a show and tell night where each tutor talked about their projects and the students showed what they had been making during the cruise. It was nice for us to see what others were working on. These are Judy's gorgeous, mostly hand pieced quilts. They are so beautiful.

 Here is Fiona showing her projects.
 These are some of Wendy's students' beautiful scarves.
 And to finish off, here is just another beautiful dessert!
