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.
