At the Beach

 I made a sudden trip to Cannon Beach all by myself. Arrived yesterday and what a beautiful weekend it will be!!! Happy girl here!!!

After all my walking on the beach, I have the blisters to prove it, darn thongs!!  Today I will be barefoot with sunshine, sand, ocean, and my Kindle. Time to relax!!!

  I confess, I have more than one new quilt in my head. As far as the works in progress, I have 44 of 60 blocks completed(2 quilts). Fall is in the air, I can tell, this is the time when projects run amuck in my head.

I have my Bernina 730 for sale on eBay if anyone is interested. Sale ends Monday. Hope you enjoy my photo's, I think they look amazing myself!!!!

I have been busy making two quilts at the same time. One for me,one for my daughter. My daughter-in-law is next. I have 40 blocks finished with 20 more to go. Maybe I'll make my DIL the same quilt in her favorite colors. These are 2 colored organic solids. Just love the organic fabric, so soft. Should be able to sew lots this holiday weekend. Yeah! I'm thinking of doing some hand quilting with Perlé cotton. Never did that before. Btw, I got over the trauma of my second date...I am quite happy by myself and love my little nook where I have my sewing area set up. My sister is close to finishing her first quilt. She has worked on it for a year! She is attempting stippling . I told her that was pretty difficult for a first quilt but that didn't seem t matter. She will be coming over to learn to do the binding! Proud of her, at age 60! I have found out that the ex has forged my name on a rather substantial check! The things he has done continue to amaze me. Can you say prison time ? He really deserves a little R&R in the tank. I'm going to see grand baby in 2 weeks. He is 11 months old. We will be going to Myrtle Beach for a week. Will be nice to go in a warm ocean, can't wait.
