Crochet Geek Lace FunTimes on Carnival Cruise

How many of you are working on crochet lace?

My son asked me to make a lace tablecloth for him about 40 inches across.  I have been working on it for about 3-4 months.  The cruise was a good time to work each motif piece of lace.  I have about 12 more to make before its complete.  Maybe I should have taken another 8 day cruise to complete the tablecloth.  We left April 17 out of Port Canaveral on the Carnival Valor and came back on April 25, 2015.  This was a good vacation and very relaxing.
