Had a wonderful time in Tim's classes. I actually finished all the projects as seen above.
I'm very happy with the end results and kudos to Tim for being such a great instructor.
He is very generous and is good at teaching. The curio cabinet was my favorite. We searched for stuff at each port to put in it. I guess it tells a story of our cruise. I also collected ephemera
for the travel journal.
The shabby Chic Patchwork collage was so much fun and I'll probably make another one.
We learned different ways to make flowers(using his products) for the tags.
My favorite port was St. John, New Brunswick. It was so quaint and had so much charm.
Bar Harbour was beautiful. Went to Acadia National Park and to a lobster bake.
Halifax was OK. It didn't have the charm I expected. It is busy city.
Went to the Witch museum in Salem . Enjoyed the tour. Portland and Boston were interesting,
Did not see enough of either city to really get a taste of it.
I'm glad to be home. 10 days at sea was a bit long for me. Overall, the trip was great. Met some interesting people from all over the world. There sure are alot of Tim admirers.
