It seems Fridays, when I don't need a post title, are the days that I can actually come up with one.
This one would be called Mahalo.
Mahalo is a Hawaiian word meaning thanks, gratitude, admiration, praise, esteem, regards, respects.
I love it that one word can convey so many wonderful sentiments! I made this mini for my friend Hope who used to live in Hawaii and still says Mahalo on her answering machine greeting. (Actually, I believe it is her husband's voice on the machine.)
I'm taking this to Hope and Marty this evening as they have graciously invited my husband and I (and Ally) to join them for Game Night, and I thought this would be a nice host/hostess gift. ...my way of saying thank you Mahalo to Hope for putting up with the drama that is my life, continuing to invite me over even when I constantly say no, joining me in my crazy quilting obsession being such a good friend.
(I hope she is too busy preparing for the evening to read my blog today.)
I stitched the Mahalo while in the doctor's waiting room. I used some of my Cosmo threads leftover from the Embroidery Color Wheel.
I am glad our quilt guild is having a binding demonstration at our next meeting!
Do you like my hanger? Hope and I are all about recycling;-)
Did you notice the Bucket List tab below my header? I just added "learn free motion quilting" to that!
Did you know tomorrow is National Quilt Day? Our quilt guild is having their first Sew Day on the same day. I hope to select the background fabric for my peace quilt, get some of those blocks made and even piece some of the peace sign on Saturday. If so, I'll share the pictures with you Monday.
Don't neglect the other Sew and Tell Friday posts. Click on the sidebar button to see the list.
Enjoy National Quilt Day and have an amazing weekend!!!
