Big Island Fruit = Yummy

Driving south of Kona on our way to Volcano National Park on Big Island, we stumbled on a delightful stand with local fruits. I love the colours and textures!

Queen Lili'uokalani's Crazy Quilt

We enjoyed visiting the beautiful Iolani Palace in Honolulu. While imprisoned in the palace for 10 months in 1895, the queen made a crazy quilt documenting the events of this time.  The quilt is made of silk and cotton. I went a little crazy taking photos. As I look at the photos I realize what a teaching tool it is for me as I strive to learn new stitches.

So nice to be surrounded by green in December.  I keep forgetting that it is not summertime!

Hawaiian Art

Liz's home is filled with fun Hawaiian prints.  I love her taste in simple decorating with the things she picks up at local markets.
Loving the bright bold colours. I'm seeing quilt inspiration everywhere I look!
