THERE IS ALOT OF DANCING GOING ON IN AMERIKA SAMOA!

Oh yes, this Palagie (white) girl can dance......and lately I have been doing alot of it. Dancing does burn calories...right?

My husband came home last night from Hawaii bearing these gifts.......ohhhhhhh
sooooooooooooooooooooooo lovely. My goal before leaving the islands is to have a pretty good stash of batiks.




Next on the list is THIMBLEBERRIES SEW DAY. It is this Wednesday.

I forgot about it last month. Well......this gal has trouble remembering what day it is but....

I am going to finish up this wall hanging. OOOOOPPPSSSS AM I BAD....Thimbleberries sew day is next Wednesday (ha!!!)...sorry about that.. Gee...what day is it? I need help....someone help me please.....

Betsy, I have it hanging from the doors of my Armoir (is that spelled right), it hangs really neatly at the bottom. I am also guessing if it doesn't, to just make a sleeve and slide a ruler in the bottom. It has no batting and Betsy was wondering how it would hang.

It is nice having THE MAN home but his snoring doesn't do anything for my beauty sleep. Heaven knows I need lots of it. Makes for a long day in class.

I just had to add this...go to Sew Fantastic and see how she is organizing her stash with Comic book boards.....

I saw a story on 60 Minutes last night about American Samoa. I thought of you. What a beautiful place to live.

Beautiful batiks. I too collect batiks.

Rhonda said...

Barb, you are too funny. I love your blog and the way you describe daily living and your passion for fabric and sewing. Those batiks are beautiful.
Take care.

Great fabrics Barb...

OH NO!!! I almost dropped my cuppa coffee!
Thimbleberries sew day is NEXT Wednesday!!!
Be still my heart!

And that wall hanging! How much easier would those leaf shapes be cut with your GO? Do they have dies that large?

...Karen

p.s. maybe THE MAN needs a CPAP.

Looks like you are close to finishing the Thimbleberries wall hanging. I love how the leaves are falling all over it.

Gorgeous Batiks, definitely worth a happy dance :)

Great batiks, Barb. You have a good (snoring) hubby!!!!

JustCindy said...

I got all excited when I read the title. I just knew you were being to DFW area. boo hiss Oh those batiks are sooooo pretty. I'm so glad to hear your test came out good. I will be giving that a try this afternoon on a tiny wall hanging.

Beautiful batiks! Your comment about Thimbleberries day reminded me that last year I started a Christmas table runner made of Thimbleberries fabrics. I wonder where I put it.

Fiesta said...

nice collection Barb. Now don't use them until you go to the states. I so love that fall wall hanging and you are right, it hangs nicely. Good job Barb.

Janet said...

What a gorgeous pile of batiks! It kinda makes up for the snoring. The hanging is perfect for the time of year.

Gene Black said...

What fabulous fabrics. Does he just know what colours to buy, or do you have to guide him?

Your hanging is great, and I totally understand the "what day is it" syndrome. I also suffer from "what month is it?" and "what year is it?". I think it all started when I gave up work?

hetty said...

Yummy batiks, Barb! The wall hanging is cute. Our leaves are starting to change colour, so I am wanting to do a fall quilt. Maybe I should just finish the ones I have started in other autumns!

Melinda Cornish said...

oooh hubby had the batik thing down doesnt he?

Susan Entwistle said...

You have trained the hubs well. Mine would have come home with 8 cuts that totally clashed with each other, with huge trout patterns.

Cyndi said...

Love those batiks, Barb. Your hubby is truly a gem! My hubby is going to Africa for business in November...I told him he'd better bring me some African fabric back, or else! LOL!!!

XOXO,

Cyndi
