Today I read the following quote:
Kuana Torres Kahele: 'ALOHA HAWAII. MAKE LEI
One of our greatest gifts is our time.
In a world where everyone seems short on time and patience, stopping for 3 or 4 hours to make someone a lei happens less and less frequently. The notion of putting so much effort into something perishable escapes many people. Long after the scent has departed and the petals have faded, your lei of love stays in the heart of the wearer.
Making lei for someone says, I care enough about you to create--to give you a little of my spark. It says Aloha and I love you. It is our opportunity to temporarily harness nature's beauty and magically gift it to someone.
Go make lei.'
I've done sewing, knitting, embroidery etc in my time but the fingers are not as nimble as they once were; but I can still make leis! So I do - on a regular basis. The new technique described by this person prompted me to make one today!
