ScrapHappy Saturday - Dark and Blue

My first dip into the blue this month was a group of string blocks.  I'm getting close to being done with this collection.  
I tried hard to remember that today was Saturday.  It gets harder to tell the day apart.  
Monday was a good day.  
 As we enjoyed our morning beach walk, I saw sand flying into the air from the dunes.  We sat a respectful distance away and waited patiently until this Mama sea turtle emerged from her nest after laying her eggs. 
By the time she had lumbered her way back to the tide line, a group of the beach walkers we see on a regular basis were gathered to cheer her on.

Those blue string blocks look so elegant. I can’t wait to see these come together! And how lucky you are to see a turtle laying her eggs and going back “home”. I hope the eggs remain undisturbed so they can hatch! The world needs more turtles.(and fabric scraps)!

Oh how wonderful to be able to see this miracle happening in real time!
I wonder how long you have to wait to see the babies emerge?
