We had a very nice and comfortable room on the 7th floor of the Hale Koa facing the beach. It was PERFECT!!! This is the view from our room-- the beach is just beyond the courtyard-- our little corner of paradise ;-)
My new tan is fading fast (I'm sorry to say)... and I'm missing everything "beachy". It truly was a dream vacation which would not be a complete dream without a little needlework to go with ;-)
I kept busy by starting and finishing a couple of punch needle projects. They are small enough to travel with-- everything fits in a baggie with the exception of the gripper frame. I'll get those pictures posted on my website as soon as I can as well as the finished "Temptation" picture. I finished it just before we left and it is definitely my new favorite!!!
This is my newest punch needle pattern just in time for Fall-- I haven't uploaded a photo of the finished pattern but it is done and ready to go!!
I think Pippa needs to be done as a rug too-- what do you think?
This is my soon-to-be newest punch needle Unnamed, as of yet... Gina, where are you? ;-)
I have also reworked a previous booklet-- My Little Book of Treasures.
This booklet contains 8 little sketches to be used for punch needle or enlarged for Hooking or for a quilt applique'. The cover can also be used as a design, actually making the booklet 9 sketches-- a great value ;-)
I also need to start thinking about quilting!!!! I've not done any in SO long... I've missed it but really needed to reach my rug goal before I could quilt again.
Spring Market is in Kansas City in May 2012 so I have my work cut out for me for the next few months.
I have a beautiful palette in my brain that I really want to work with...
Blessings to all till next time ;-)
I need to go and deal with my ceiling leak now... Superman should be home soon ;-)))
