A Room with a View

My time here is coming to an end, I will be leaving tomorrow evening.  I have had a wonderful relaxing time.  Yesterday we went to a Luau & the show was quite good.  I did try some Poi - which is a liquid type of pudding made of the Taro root - it tastes somewhat bland and a bit sour.  Not terrible, not good either.  I had some seaweed salad, which was really tasty, but my tongue turned bright green....

So, here is a pic of what our view is from our room.

The wonderful green space is Fort de Russy, a Military Reservation.  The Hale Koa (our hotel) is very unique in that it has all the open space around it, since it was one of the first hotels out on this end of the island.  Everyone else is kind of crammed on top of each other.  Here is another pic.

Here is a quick snapshot of my second finish - it will be an ornament for my oldest daughter Erika. It is a Birds of a Feather Pattern called Christmas Angel Ornament ( now oop) stitched on HDF 35ct Jackalope linen with various HDF fibers.  I like the way it turned out.  There are 3 more angles which she will receive in the years to come.

Oh, I just wanted to note that all my pics so far have been taken on my iPhone.  My DH is hogging the camera for work - I guess that takes priority over my stitching pics.  See everyone soon back on the mainland.

  1. I love love love that angel. It's such a shame that BOAF quit designing cross-stitch pieces. And those things are so hard to come by. I love the batik fabric behind the piece too - looks a little like a sarong I bought in Maui.
