|Come on in!|
Sylvia Pippen brought over some of the hand applique and Hawaiian applique quilters for a nice lunch and show and tell. They do beautiful work , and the food was delicious. . Sylvia has a new top with many of her designs, and wants to learn to use my longarm, to quilt it. OK When we both are actually on the island at the same time.
We will be getting together with a group of art quilters in Kona in early December. Maybe expand our SAQA membership?
|Circle of Life postcards|
I did finish my postcards for our circle of life themed exchange.Here are a few of them. Israeli dancing seems to embody the spirit well, and I added quilting that shows movement and a bit of glittery paint to enhance the feeling of celebration. 25 cards sent out means I get that many different ones back, such fun

Well, ok, last year's was pretty bright too. But I was already thinking about Hawaii

I am still working on the heavily embellished piece shown here in progress. . All of the bits of fabric, thread, yarns, cords, ribbons, laces etc were added by longarm, composing right on the frame. I'll be adding beads, and flowers and buttons etc by hand now. Again, I think the colors of all of our bright tropical foliage are influencing me.
Off to California tomorrow for a few weeks with my favorite people. We can't think of any other reason to leave this paradise, but children and grandchildren still trump everything else. Happy Thanksgiving to all, and for those of you in Israel, please stay safe
