I've convinced myself that, just as in coloring, lines are merely suggestions. I'll probably do a few stitches here and there and see if it is fun or not.
The End of an Industry
The last producing sugar cane mill in Hawaii is going to close soon. The last mill about eight miles from our home.

The best thing about it closing? No more cane burning. They would burn a field and then harvest the stalks that were left for processing. The smoke also billowed out of the stacks at the mill during processing as you can see in the above photo.
No one knows what's going to happen to the 36,000 acres of cane fields. Odds are they will mainly be used for agricultural purposes. (Although, I'm not sure I want to eat anything that they plant on land that's been abused for this long.)
I hope all is going well for you.
