Weather is beautiful today — hot and sticky yesterday — who knows tomorrow.  But the ocean is always beckoning.  Even if you are not a swimmer or a surfer, life in the ocean is fascinating.  Enjoy this beautiful honu (green turtle)  that we get to watch.  Such fascinating creatures.

Georg sent me pictures of his new canvases — I fell in love with 2 of them.  Two designs are done in the retro style — Hawaiian Girl with Ukulele.  I have even started pulling threads.

And then there is the Hawaiian Girl with Fruit — that’s breadfruit.  6025HawnGirlFruit

Been working at cleaning out my yard — high winds and lots of rain has caused havoc.  Trimmed the hedge and the Bird of Paradise flowers are now standing tall.  I realized that it is a lot easier for me to do a needlepoint garden, especially since Alison Hodgkiss did these wonderful stitch guides for Raymond’s flowers.  Bird of Paradise, Magnolia, Cherry Blossom and others can grace your home.  They don’t need weeding, watering or trimming!

Laura’s Garden.  This great canvas was taught by Laura Taylor at TNNA today.  Great teacher who shares her thoughts and concepts on developing a stitch guide.  Ribbon embroidery, stump work, darning stitches and needle weaving — all to create a garden that is forever in bloom.  A true beliver that stitching needs to be enjoyable.  This canvas is brought to us by Sundance Designs.

Christmas Hawaiian Style!

Christmas Hawaiian Style!

We are moving into July with stars in our eyes. The store has been set, rearranged and rearranged again. But we are home and loving every minute. Raymond Crawford has done a star proclaiming Mele Kalikimaka. What a great way to get our Christmas things done. I’m making mine all sparkly — check me out next week and I will show you how far I have gotten.

Sending out an ALOHA to all , by way of & More’s wonderful Aloha sign.  Counted the pattern to fit the center column and had to make adjustments to the two end columns.  So I added a little border with Alternating Scotch Stitch.  It will be perfect to hang in my window to show that we are open.  Come see the new space.
