Maui 2012

Maui Swap Meet, March 2012.  I love the yellow, pink, orange colors, and all the different textures of the proteas.

Here is me in my philodendron t-shirt, amidst the philodendrons at the Wailea Marriott. Oh! Am I supposed to talk about quilting on this blog?  I had a fabulous time at the Maui Quilt Guild meeting in Kahului, first Tues of the month.  I met several "snowbirds" from the Pacific Northwest who live on Maui 3 to 4 months a year.  I worked on 2 different quilt tops and also made the center for a charity quilt for the Maui Guild (lap quilts for the nursing home).

January chocolate taste test

Just found these images from January's S&B session where we taste tested all these chocolates plus a couple more Scharffen Berger bars that I had stashed in my kitchen. Very yummy S&B session but the end results were that we all had different preferences in chocolate!

Overall we did agree that a nummy time was had by all! I'm sure we accomplished other things as well but the chocolate consumption rather overrode everything else.

Moss Rose Class at Smithsonian

The Kims, Lori and I are taking a small wallhanging class with Jeanne Benson ( at the Smithsonian. I almost forgot to take pictures but here's a couple from the first session last Sunday.

A preview of Kim F's elegant shadowed hibiscus - can't wait to see it completed.
