When I started blogging there were a few of you who dropped in to visit unannounced!

One of them was Barb from Bejeweled Quilts. What made her blog so great besides her quirkey way of writing about her life, was that she lived in American Samoa!

Now, how many of us live in an exotic
land? She did. I was living a bit of her
life as Barb went through her weeks,
her months and her few years living on
this beautiful Island.

Over time, she posted some beautiful photos, of which I'm showing a few today.

Barb named her blog "Bejeweled Quilts" because at one time she as addicted to the game Bejeweled....hence the name
of her blog...Cute heh?

She lived through a tsunami a couple of years ago and posted photos of the destruction on one side of her lovely little paradise.

Barb, not one to be dismayed started asking for pillow cases for her island people and we that follow her blog sent goodies...she also taught local ladies how to sew and quilt, encouraged young people to become involved.

I followed Barb's adventures of visiting her sons and invading them with sewing machine and fabrics, totally disrupting their lives with them loving every Mom was there.

So, an era has come to an end. Barb and her darling guy are moving on to another adventure in life. I shall miss Samoa and Barb's stories, but I'm thinking that no matter where Barb goes adventure will surely follow.
