Let me take you on a sea cruise



I've been singing about sea cruises for a while now, but only in the shower. I have had to stay mum until the plans were finalized. Now I can announce my big news. Shout it from the rooftop, even. I'm going to be a guest speaker on a 2012 cruise to the Mexican Riviera. Quilt Camp at Sea runs first class quilting cruises, and they like having an author along for the ride. Lucky me, they picked me for the March 2012 cruise. They're calling it the Girls Just Want to Have Fun cruise.

We'll be sailing March 10 (2012, remember) out of San Diego and visiting Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas. While on the ship, quilting teachers like Lori Hein, Patti Carey, Mary Covey, Anita Mahoney, Lisa Moore, and Jacke Wolff will be teaching. You don't even need to bring your sewing machine, Berninas are provided. Special guest Judy Houghton, designer of this fabulous fabric, will also be along.


This will be a first for me. I've never been on a cruise. I've been looking at the Holland America website at the ship and am a little stunned. It is far more elegant than I'd expected and way more interesting. It looks like I'll be able to swim, hot tub, work out. I knew I'd be able to eat my way through the waters, but I can also disco dance and watch live shows. Cooking lessons are offered. I can enjoy the art, including an amazing Waterford crystal globe.



Who knew? I bet some of you did. Tell me your favorite cruising experiences so I can be prepared.

If you want to sign up go to the Quilt Camp at Sea website or email me. http://www.quiltcampatsea.com/2012%20Mexican%20Riviera%20cruise.htm

Okay, so that extra steamer trunk you don't recognize, that they'll be carrying up the gangplank for you? That'll be me stowing away for the ride. Shhh...

SO cool!

Becky stole my comment. I was going to say how cool, too.

How exciting, Terri! I've taken quite a few cruises and have been able to give enrichment talks on some of them, but I've never been on a focused cruise like yours. Keep us posted!

That's excellent, Terri! I haven't quilted for years, but I love cruises! Awesome!

Everyone's invited! The ship holds 1900 people, so whether you quilt or not, come on along.

Hi joystudio,

Plans have changed! I'm not going on the cruise after all. :(

Thanks for stopping by!
