Quite a few years ago, Kevin’s mother gave me a kit for a Hawaiian quilt pillow that she had picked up in Hawaii. It had to be at least 10-15 years old at the time. It was my “boat project” that I worked on when we were hanging on the hook or sitting at the mooring. Because I was only working on it a few days a year, it was taking too long to finish. I decided I needed to ‘get it done’ so I could move on to other projects.
I like Hawaiian Quilting. It is definitely different than the crewel, cross-stitch, and needlepoint I have done in the past. Some day maybe I will design and make another one.
I finally finished it about a week ago. Now I need to figure out what to do with it. Maybe it will go on Autumn Dream, though I already have an assignment to make a leather bolster pillow for her, and I don’t want to have “too many” pillows crowding the main salon.
Last week I picked up a knitting magazine, and that inspired me to dig out some patterns and my crochet hooks. I bought some yarn the other day, and I am working on a cap-sleeve sweater. I’ll share when it is finished.
