SEWIN CLASS

THIS IS TODAY'S WORK..... My little friend went home and made this big bag....Samoans love big....they told me so...they say Samoans love big, Polagi's love small bags. Just like they like big flowers in their hair....I am just saying what they tell me...

Wasn't she a productive one????

Great class, great friends.....
OH>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>....if you are not on facebook, we just found out that we do not get to go to Huston....we are really bummed. So...we can wait it out here or chose another place?? They said a spot may come open in October but that means we have to leave later. We were told we would get what we wanted, but it looks like not. So.....stay tunned for more of the saga of Where Vance and Barb are going to go???

It's not just Samoans....Polynesians in general love big! It's us silly palangi's that make things difficult by going small :) :) :)

So sorry that you are not heading to Houston. It will be interesting to hear where you end up.

Sorry to hear about Huston. Maybe things will change.
Your students are fast learners. Love the towel and potholder they make and of course the bags. Maybe you are needed on the island a little longer.

Barb, I am so sorry that you do not get to go to Houston. It may be some kind of omen that you are still needed there. The ladies are learning so much. You will have to replenish that stash soon!!!

Bummer about Houston! Bigger and better things must be awaiting your future. At least you can spend more time with those lovely ladies.

Linda said...

Oh well, Houston is hot and muggy right now.

Your students(friends) are doing so well and getting so much done. It sure looks like you're having fun. You'll have time to teach them alot more. We'll be standing by to see where you're going!

I'm sorry you're not getting your choice of destination right away - hopefully that's cos there's something betterr round the corner.

Shari said...

What great gals to sew with! Very productive - just like you!

Would staying on in Samoa be too hard? Can't imagine how hard it is for you to be up in the air with something like this - will be thinking of you and praying for the best outcome!

Crispy said...

WOW your students are really getting good AND productive LOL.

So sorry about Houston, I hope you find a wonderful place to move to.

Deanna said...

You have work yet to do there, and, if I'm really lucky, maybe they will send you to Utah and we can hang out.

Stormy Days said...

Where did they want you to go? Could you still get Houston in Oct? Bummer. The bags are great, love your turtles.

Kim D. said...

Barb, it looks like you gave them the sewing bug. How fun to share the love of sewing, they look so excited. I'm so sorry after all your excitement that you're not able to go to Houston right away. Thinking good thoughts and will keep you in my prayers that you get there soon. Cyber Hugs,

Susan In Texas said...

I'm sorry about Houston, though the weather is really miserable throughout Texas these days. Triple digits in Fort Worth. blech. Why exactly are you moving around? I guess I've never figured out why you're in Samoa in the first place. Sorry. 8(

Happy stitching,
Susan

Ladies look like they did have fun! You are so good to be teaching them and enjoying it too!

Hugs,

Sorry to hear about not getting your first choice but I'm sure you will bloom wherever you are planted.

I know your heart is in Huston, but how about Washington, da state?

Susan Entwistle said...

So sorry about Houston, I was making plans to go to the Quilt Festival with you. Maybe you can come to the D.C. area, and we can do GO! projects together.
