Alaska Cruise, Day 6

Day 6 of our cruise was an "at sea" day, and we had two class sessions that day. Fortunately, they were both in the specialty dining room, which had the best light of all the spaces we were given to use.

Everyone was busy stitching, and many stitchers finished one or two of the smalls in the project book. One of the stitchers had almost finished stitching all of the pieces of the project!

Sue showed the participants how to finish the scissors fob with the ladder stitch (or outside join as I learned it from Joni) and I show the biscornu finishing and an alternate finish for the floss ring fob.

More door prizes were drawn, including a "grand door prize" which was a complete set of DMC floss. Congratulations to Linda Fenska for winning all of that lovely floss!

Sue also distributed one more design all kitted up. It was an Alaska bell pull

That evening was the second formal night, and dinner was a real treat! The matre 'ds were all introduced, and the waiters participated in the baked Alaska Parade. This picture shows Johnny, the assistant waiter, and Dalibor, our favorite waiter.

The parading of the baked Alaska is always great fun! They parade up and down the grand staircase, and all around the dining room while all the diners twirl their napkins in the air.
It was yummy, too!
