But before we left the condo we had a few pieces of bread left that we threw to the birds. And a few nene (Hawaiian Geese) came to the area. These two reminded me of book ends. They stood very still on one foot for a very long time.
We drove from the northern shores of Princeville toward Lihue and the airport. And we stopped at Lydgate Park. Gorgeous beach and a great place for families to enjoy almost any kind of outdoor activities. There were wonderful playgrounds, lots of beach, and camping and picnic areas.
The reef made this an ideal swimming beach. You can see the waves out further but they never reach the shore on this beach. We had lunch at a little local place called Danni's and then we headed for the airport. Our first flight was from Lihue to Honolulu. We flew on a little prop plane.
Just in case you think I had two weeks without crafting that's not exactly true. I took 2 skeins of yarn with me and crocheted 8 7inch by 9 inch rectangles. Our neighborhood is going together to make an afghan for Warm Up America. To make the afghan we need 49 rectangles so I did 8 of them for the afghan. before we left I cut up an old book pages into rectangles. Then I folded the paper and nested the pieces together to make these baskets.
And here's a card I made this week for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day.
Jacaranda. This is part of the Doodle Pantry May release. I used the pre-colored image. The sentiment is from TLC Creations. The embossing folder is Flower Garden. I added 3 strips of purple card stock and a strip of white satin ribbon. I used an OWH sketch.
