Happy New Year

I hope you all have a wonderful new year. I plan to take some chances and try some new things. One thing I plan to do is start Jimmy's t-shirt quilt. That will keep me busy! Now...I need some sleep! It's after midnight!

Hawaii pics

I finally got to a place that I can stop and tell what's what. We went to the Polynesian Cultural Center and had a most informative time. I understand more of the culture now and I really dig it! I found authentic Hawaiian fabric at the center and brought back goodies for the new babies we'll be having in February and July. But here are the pictures of the sewing I did on the way over and back. I know why Susan Linn does it. It is very addictive!

Hawaii !!!

Jimmy and I are in Honolulu for the USM football game. It seems like a dream. I did get some sewing done on the plane tho. I am doing some hexagon English paper piecing and, once I got the hang of it, it's going pretty well. I was able to iron the pieces on in the hotel room while Jimy went running so the rest should be easier to do. I will post pictures later as my iPad is an iPad and not an iPad 2 (no camera).

Honolulu is very commericialized. It's not what we expected. I hope we get to do a tour today. The Arizona is booked out so that's out but I hope the Dole Pineapple Plantation is a go.. Or an ecotour would be great!

I hope to get to some quilting or fabric places too. I have scoped some out. Keeping my fingers crossed!!
