Stitchers could change the colors of hair, eyes and clothing to work for their own family members. Parents could be stitched in the center, with children radiating out to the sides, from tallest to shortest or vice-versa or randomly, whatevah you like.
I'm still working out the details but let me know what you think.
I can't believe it has been a month since my last blog post! Where does the time go? Oh, I remember: I was rehabilitating the garden which was overgrown after nearly 1-1/2 years of neglect. It was so overgrown that the individual beds were virtually unrecognizable. Everything was weeds with a few flowers peeking out here and there. Anyway, I finished up last week. Here are some photos of the restored garden. Sorry, as usual I forgot to make before pictures so you really can't appreciate the difference in the before and after.
I am working on a new series of free charts. I have been thinking a lot about family lately so I decided to do something featuring the subject of 'ohana. Here's the idea, so far. I was thinking of publishing the chart for each family member separately (mother, father, grandmother, grandfather, daughter, son) - one each month for six months and in the last month also the final chart, as shown below. But there are lots of options for stitching. Rather than stitching the family as shown together with Hawaiian names for mother, father, etc., each stitcher could stitch her/his own family members and then add their given names. Or they could stitch and frame each family member separately.
I am continuing to work on the Hawaiian Islands. New photo soon to show my progress.
Just call me Fran
So glad to finally have a website. Life is good.
