Yes, I was away in Hawaii for 10 days! I loved every minute! Here is a picture of the view from our Airbnb on the east coast of Oahu.
Can you imagine listening to the waves all night and waking up to this view? I loved the warm weather (it wasn’t HOT). It was pretty great … and is now a wonderful memory.
We didn’t do much shopping, but did stop in a few fabric / quilt stores. My husband bought more than me! I bought 4 yards, he bought 5! I bought the 2 on the extreme left and the 1 on the extreme right. He bought all the ones in the middle.
Nothing is finished, so nothing taken away … but shopping happened as per picture above.

With being away, I haven’t worked on much! Yesterday and today, I worked on a few blocks from the Bonnie Hunter mystery, Good Fortune … Adding the grey sides to the 4 patches. Not all 4 patch blocks have sides on them … still have tons and tons to do!
Sew, I’m doing this a little different than Kate (Check out Life in Pieces Blog). I’m only counting the days that I’m home, not when I’m away on holidays … and it’s only counting time spent actually sewing or cutting. Kate suggested taking hand work with me when I’m away … but I really don’t do much by hand … and I haven’t figured out how to fit a sewing machine in my carry-on (with all my clothes etc) or in the front seat of the car!
So far this year, in January, I’ve been home 9 days and I’ve sewn on 8 of those days. Only missed one day. 88%
The stats are looking pretty grim here!
That’s OK … perhaps next week I’ll have a finish. Well, maybe, … maybe not!
