Vancouver and Holiday Extravaganza Reveal!

Wednesday Stephen and I flew to Vancouver, BC to join the Stitchin Heaven Aloha Cruise.  Thank goodness we went a day early, as the airline had mechanical trauma, and we felt like they had us flying all over the entire US before getting us to Vancouver .  However, we made it!

Yesterday, we rented a Harley to ride to Whistler, BC.  We took a lovely ride through most of Vancouver, English Bay, Stanley Park, Horseshoe Bay, Lions Bay and up to Shannon Falls.  Where we had a fabulous time on the trails.  Shannon Falls is just beautiful!

Then we continued driving north through Squamish where the weather started to look sketchy, but we continued on, and hoped the rain clouds would blow over.  We made it to Tantalus Overlook before the heavy rain started and we had to turn back.  Even though we skirting rain the whole ride back to Vancouver, the view from Rt 99 was still delightful.

We've decided that we will definitely have to come back to the Greater Vancouver area.  Next year's Alaskan cruise has a stop in Victoria, which will be nice to visit too.

Today, we are boarding the ship.  The Stitchin Heaven crew and teachers will be setting up the classroom.  Then, we have a welcoming meeting with all the quilter this afternoon. Woohoo!  Can't wait.

Tomorrow we are off to Seattle for the day.  Then we are at sea for 4 days, crossing the Pacific Ocean, to get to Hawaii for 6 days of fun.  While we are at sea, we have our quilt classes.  I'm so excited, this is going to be so much fun.

Well enough about my fun, you probably want to see the Holiday Extravaganza Reveal!

The details to finish your Holiday Extravaganza can be found in this week's download.  Which will only be available until 9/27/2019.

After that you would have to purchase Clue #17, as well as the other clues, from my Etsy shop.  If you love the reveal, but haven't been downloading the Clues (or are missing any).  You can now purchase Clues #1-8B and Clues #9-17.

Well, I have to get going, there is a lot to do today.  Tune in next week to catch updates on how we are progressing on the Cruise and to hear some details about what I'm thinking about doing as a challenge in November and December.

In January, I plan on running another mystery, similar to Sunset on the Sound, for those winter months, to keep us all sewing.  We have to keep our quilting mojo going.

I'm off to the cruise!  I will be seeing some of you shortly, while the others I hope will concern joining me for another cruise or retreat!

Keep Stitching,
