First Thing on the List? The Beach
Many Faces of Waikiki
Waikiki Beach is actually
several beaches, each with its own personality. Duke Kahanamoku Beach,
named after the famed Olympic swimmer, sits in front of the Hilton
Hawaiian Village Beach and Resort. A protective seawall makes it a safe
swimming spot for families. Prince Kuhio Beach is usually crowded, but
it’s another family-friendly locale. Lava walls enclose two shallow
swimming ponds perfect for little swimmers. San Souci Beach is on the
Diamond Head end of Waikiki, fronting Kapiolani Park. A few hotels share
the sand, but most of it is undeveloped, and healthy reef is roughly 50
yards out, which makes it good snorkeling territory. This is a favorite
of the locals, particularly students from the University of Hawaii. Its
nickname is “dig me beach” because beachgoers come to see and be seen.
The swimsuits tend to be a bit more abbreviated than on most other parts
of Waikiki Beach.
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
