I made the costumes for Vacation Bible School at my church. The theme was Kingdom Chronicles, emphasizing the armor of God. The setting was a castle; let me introduce you to the characters in the daily skits...
King Karl

Prince Phillip

Prince Phillip in the full armor of God

Sir Stephen, Knight
Queen Camilla, evil sister of the king
The Queen's Dragon


The whole cast
I came up with the ideas for the costumes. The queen's dress was made by her mother; the prince's shirt was a combined effort with a friend of mine. The rest I made on my own. My husband built the set of armor and the dragon's head.

It was a lot of work! I am satisfied with the look of each costume, and I have a sense of accomplishment as well.

A Farewell Quilt

Recently the associate pastor at my church accepted  a position in another Hawaii! The quilters sent his family off in style with a double-sided quilt. I called it the Coming and Going Quilt.
The going side is the Swoon pattern, using the fabric line "Safari Moon". It represents where the family is going to...islands of bright colors surrounded by a sea of blue.
The coming side is a signature quilt made with disappearing four patch blocks. It represents where the family is coming from, and it is signed by all the families in my church. The sentiments were so special, from how this family made an impact on different people, to light-hearted comments, such as "save me a spot on the beach"!
This family was sent off with much love and a special quilt!
for a Whoop Whoop finish!
