Beach Time

Sunshine....sand....relax....enjoy....waves pounding....warmth. 
That's what I think about when I think about the beach.  I grew up in California about 3 hours from the beach.  Yes, we made a lot of trips to Santa Cruz and Morro Bay over the years, oh the memories!!  So when Quiltmaker asked me to design a Skinnie for summer, I thought beach.  Here's the latest Skinnie in Quiltmaker magazine. 
This is the May/June 2013 issue.
Of course with any new publication I'm in, I have to give one away!
Contest time!
Leave me a comment (just one please)
and tell about your favorite tropical location
one you have been to or where you would love to go.
Be a follower
This contest will run until March 30.
The winner will be chosen randomly and will receive this issue of Quiltmaker
My favorite beach to go to was always Santa Cruz, California
Where I would love to go would be a any beach with clear water and white sand....hmmmm  I think I'm ready for some major sun.
OK, I'll stop dreaming and let's hear your dreams
Happy Sewing

National Quilting Day

Sorry my post is a little late this morning.  Got carried away in the weekend rush.
Did you know that today is National Quilting Day?  Isn't that awesome!!  I think this is one of the better holidays, don't you?  So now we all get to sit down and do some serious quilting in support of this holiday.  So many projects and sew little time.  Let's see what I can come up with to do.  
This will be one project.  There is a scout in my neighborhood that is working on his Eagle project.  We are helping sew these quilt square together to make small lap size quilts.  I have 3 sets to do.  All the fabrics are to help with sensory awareness.  After all the quilts are done, he is then going to donate them to the Autism foundation. 
Tell me what you are goin to work on today.
Happy Sewing and enjoy your weekend!
