The Inspiration

We took an Antarctic cruise which was one of the most wonderful cruises we have taken. One of the stops was in the Falkland Islands where we saw thousands of King Penguins like this one. This inspired me to create an intarsia penguin and his chick.

The result

When we returned, this penguin found its way out of the woodpile. Go to www.delswood.com to see which woods I used.

Can't believe it was a year ago that we set out for Europe aboard the Emerald Princess.

We were so happy that we took the ship's tour to Paris. We drove down the Champs Elysees and toured the city, finishing off with lunch on a riverboat as we cruised the Seinne.

The weather was exceptional, as you can see, beautiful blue skies, just perfect for touring and great memories.
