North Shore Quilt & Fiber Show March 2011

I've been lost in Blogland, admiring everyone else's work & inspirations, but I've made my way out finally to post again.
I have some news to share, the Quilters of Kauai are having their annual show, March 25th & 26th at the Church of the Pacific in Princeville on Kauai. The month of March will also have many events & classes in conjunction with the Quilt Show. Some of the events include Fabric Bingo & a lecture by doll maker Elinor Peace Bailey. Many talented quilters from Kauai will also be teaching classes.

Follow these links for schedule & sign up form.

Wow! I am stoked you are back! I know alot of people are on FB now, but with them making peoples info to third parties, I think there will be a mass exodus from FB, probably me too, not sure.
I am in the process of making my first whole real art doll. She is turning out wonderfully. I should post a photo of her in progress. I make at least 4 heads for every doll I make. I made this really kool pincushion doll and I had 4 heads to chose from. They take about a day to do the whole thing, cut out, sew, stuff, draw, scuplt and color the face. I need the practice anyway and I am going to get a really nice basket and fill it with doll heads, eventually I will just need to pick out a head and then figure which doll I want to make.
I am planning on coming home this summer. Maybe I can teach the pincushion doll, it is so neat but is a two day class. Insane to try and do all in one day. I just have to ask the gal who taught me and I dont think that will be a problem, I dont see her making it to Kauai anytime soon.
Jeni told me Angela and Grayson are doing well but mama lisa is having a hard time with separation. Hope that all works out for the kids :-) Being away from kids and grandkids stink, but it is life. I still have not met my grandson in person yet. Victoria keeps talking about the trip me and her need to take to SLC to see her cousin Max. I could meet her in San Diego and go from there. It will happen, maybe next year.
I should just call you. I miss all you guys so much. Mark doesnt get how hard this move has been on ME. I gave up so much, he hated Kauai and got to come home. I will not complain, I love it up here but so far from family and friends.
It is finally snowing, we have had such a whimpy winter. all the snow dumps below up or to the east or west. we need the snow big time for the lakes in the summer. Plus, i hate the dirty look, the snow covers it all up and it looks so pretty and clean. It has been cold, but little or no snow until today :-)
well.........I will take some photos and post to my blog. check it out tomarrow. tell Joe I said hello. oh! I have lost 120# and now weara lg shirt and 16 jeans althou they are getting baggy, got a stash of 14s and I will probably get dil's 12s from austin, she is loosing weight too.
take care xo susan
