Aloha, dear readers. The tsunami arrived around 3 a.m., but it did not hit with overwhelming force that we know of so far. Some boats and harbors sustained damage, and a restaurant on the island of Oahu was destroyed. Hawaii is just now beginning to go out and assess the shoreline areas. The tsunami warning has not been lifted yet, but I expect it will be in the next few hours. I sincerely appreciate all of your concerns for my well-being. Our local authorities were well organized with getting information out and it seems like most people embraced the aloha spirit and cooperated with the men and women in charge. We still have roads closed and I don't believe the airport is allowing flights just yet. My thoughts and prayers now turn toward Japan. Mahalo.
My name is Shannon, but my siblings call me Mushy... I am a 44 year old wife and mom. I started sewing in junior high or high school on my mom's Viking. I had an amazing Home Economics teacher who taught me solid techniques. By my junior year, I had sewn a Vogue Bellville Sassoon dress, rated "advanced" for prom. Sewing runs in the family. I was bound to catch the "bug". I hope to inspire you to pursue your sewing interests as I have been inspired by others in the sewing community to pursue mine. Thanks for visiting!
