I'm back-ish!

Hawaii was wonderful! So wonderful in fact that I totally forgot to take photos. It's strange how, when your children are older, photos become less important.

I loved the flowers...

Plumeria
...and took a Hawaiian quilting class

Right now I'm buried under laundry and the garden is a jungle so I may be quiet for the rest of the week.
Check out the sidebar for all the books I read while on vacation. To see what I thought of them, visit my Goodreads bookshelf.

Pin It!

My husband and I went to Hawaii last year to celebrate our anniversary. WOW. You are right, the flowers are just beautiful. I saw so many different flowers. I did get pictures, or I should say my husband did. More than 1500 pictures of flowers etc. None of us. Roxie

What beautiful pictures, you can almost smell the flowers.

I found your blog through Belinda's Brown Dirt Cottage. I love her blog and it looks like I've just found another that is right up my alley.

I just LOVE your red/white and blue quilt. You said you were going to wait until fall to quilt it. Are you hand quilting it or machine quilting? I'm machine quilting one right now, and although it's faster, it's not easier, moving all that fabric around the sewing machine. Either way good luck. Can't wait to see it finished. I hope you will give us all a look see when your done.

I would like to invite you to visit my new blog at http://blogmemories.blogspot.com It's called "Making Memories One Stitch at a Time". Hope you'll find time to drop by. Love to see you.

Until next time...~~Fran :c)
