Hello from Kapa’a, Kaua’i, Hawaii – The Garden Isle of Hawaii. This is the final trip this year that will close out the Hawaii Cross stitch Pattern Series. In the the last Kaua’i trip, I focused on the east and south east part of the island which encompassed the towns of Lihue, Poipu and Kapa’a. We hiked the remote cliffs east of the Poipu golf course and hiked to Wailua Falls.
During this trip, I focused on the Na Pali coast, Waimea Canyon, and trails within the Koke’e State Park. I think I found some gems to convert into cross stitch patterns and I am excited to be able to bring those to you early next month. I am sad that my collection for this series must come to an end but you I have plenty of patterns for you. Take a look at a few upcoming patterns below:
If you are looking for exciting hikes, Koke’e State Park is full of them. We hired a professional guide, Jeremiah Felsen from Kaua’i Hiking Tours to customize the best hike for us. We had a blast on an 6-hour hike that included the Pihea Trail to Alakai Swamp trail. We were treated to a very unique landscape followed by a breathtaking view of Hanalei Bay. While the view is sometimes obscured by clouds, we were clearly in the Hawaiian Gods’ favor.
What’s next? The Australia series will be back later on this year with new and exciting patterns from Sydney, Alice Springs, Uluru, and Bondi Beach. In the meantime, you can stitch patterns from our trip to Australia in early 2019. Here are a few of these patterns:
Finally, I wanted to highlight a few of my original designs inspired by Hawaii. In the past year, after Hawaii opened up to the tourist travel, we were able to hit three island and they provided great inspiration. Please enjoy my three new patterns this year. Until next week.
