Winter Sunday

 We walked to the south on the beach yesterday to see where they were starting the beach re-nourishment.  This was as close as we could get.  They have moved a big bulldozer into the park next to our house and we have seen surveyors out taking measurements.  They will have to be done before sea turtle nesting season starts, so I think it will move pretty quickly.
 Then today we walked north and there was a surfing competition of some sort near a different beach park.  I think someone got married yesterday.  There were lots of flower leis strewn about as if they had tossed them into the ocean at the end of the ceremony.
 I got lots of orange hexies prepped during the super bowl last Sunday.  They are all sorted into groups now so that I can stitch them together.
Today I have been adding some more blocks to the snails trail/storm at sea quilt.  I ran out of the pieces that I cut last weekend, so I think I will put a movie on Netflix and have a little cutting party. I'll try out some of the sashing and add in a few lime and lavenders too I think.  This Sea Swept Quilt is my inspiration, though I think I might use slightly different proportions.   I ordered some more blue-green fabric as I didn't have nearly enough for a king sized quilt.  I added in a few oranges too, to make sure the order was enough to qualify for free shipping.  It will be nice to have a little more variety in the scrap bins again. 
I'm linking up with Slow Stitching Sunday and with Oh Scrap! today.  Be sure to visit for hand stitching and scrappy projects galore.

Great hexies! Love those colors, they kind of remind me of the previous photo of the leis on the beach!
And your Storm at Sea quilt is beautiful! I like the inspiration quilt, and I think you've captured those colors well. Looks very beach-y to me! I think the addition of the lime and lavender will be very pretty.

How fun to find flowers along your beach walk! Your hexie colors are yummy. It'll be fun to watch these come together. I love the combination of colors in your quilt in progress. Pretty yummy there, too!! :)
