Usually whilst on a long cruise with a lot of at sea days they will have painting classes, so Mum and I duly packed our brushes and watercolours in anticipation of this. But this time they had a craft tutor onboard so we signed up for the classes even though Mum isn't really a crafter apart from dabbling in a bit of painting.
The classes were quite a hoot and I had to let go of my perfectionism as we were working with very basic equipment like wonky rulers, blunt scissors and one gluestick between four. If only I had known I would have taken my trimmer, my nice sharp scissors and some decent adhesive.
Still we had a laugh each afternoon as the other ladies joining in were really nice - we made a birthday reminder display book but I have brought mine home to finish as I wasn't happy with the job that I was doing with the equipment supplied. I ended up helping the other ladies on my table to finish their books so that they could take a completed project home with them.
I will share mine once it is finished.
