Sewing in Hawaii

You know you have the right job when you do it while you are on vacation. I did a lot of sewing in Hawaii. First, I made the Uncooperative Skirt cooperate.  I added pictures of my mom in it to the post.  She looks really cute! Second, I mended a huge pile of stuff that my parents set aside for me.  They know me well! Then I went to a friends house and did a quick ‘rescue the over-cleaned chairs/add some pizazz job’.  I got to work with beautiful South American textiles.

An artistic exchange

I’m working on a very exciting, but slow, project. I’m making a quilt for my sister to give to her best friend who is having a baby. And she is going to make me a piece of art.

And Felicity already likes it, so I’m feeling pretty good about it. As long as she can avoid getting into the trouble she got into with the last Hawaiian quilt I made, everything should be fabulous! I’ll keep you updated as I sew (and take better pictures).  And if you want to keep updated on my talented sister, you can follow her on facebook.  Or just check her website.
