Beach Time

Nice quiet day today at the beach, the clouds rolled in while the birds were huddled down against the brisk breeze.  I did see this dead octopus floating along with his eyes open.

I got in a nice walk in found a few special shells and called it a day.

Happy Sewing, Kim

Happy Sewing, Kim

Sunday, July 2, 2017

Pat Sloan's  ' Grandma's Kitchen" sew along started this week and will be a once a week release until Nov.
Since I did her Solstice sew along in red and white I think it is time to add some color!

These tracks are 42 inches in wideth, can you see how she has  pushed herself along with her flippers?

We look for these tracks at sunrise, everyday of the week a group of turtle walkers checks for nest all along the North Carolina coastline.

This momma turtle walked all around this dune finding just the spot she wanted, she walk and worked so long that her tracks from the water to the dunes were washed away, only her exit tracks back to the water were visible.

Hopefully in 45 days or so we will gather to watch the baby turtles hatch and run to the sea.

Happy 4th of July!, Kim

Rainy day Sea Turtle Watch

Rainy beach morning looking for sea turtle tracks indicating turtle nests. Females lay the eggs then leaves them buried in the sand  to hatch on their own 45 to 55 days later.


Add caption
This is mostly Pat Sloan's Soltstice pattern, but I have also added orphan blocks from my failed attempt to making "Just takes 2" a 2010 by Brenda Papadakis and Gay Bomers sew along.  I think it is a nice combination of blocks.  Oh also the feathered star block is made from Marti Michell templates and not included in either sew along.

Happy Sewing, Kim

En Provence

Bonnie Hunter is tying up the loose ends of her annual mystery quilt " En Provence" with a linky party.  Go check out all the beauties that have been made!

Mine is still a work in progress, I added a center pink block to match the star points, I'll add a small blue border before it is finished.  I also added an extra row to make it large enough for a queen sized bed.

Thank you Bonnie for another Great Mystery :0),
Happy Sewing ,
