A day of quilting Butterfly Kisses and Celebrating a family of geese

A gorgeous day at Edmond's beach.....so fun to watch the small children playing in the sand, listening to the ferry's horn as it departed and to think of Grandpa Dave as a train passed behind me. A year ago this was the first quilt pictured above, Surf and Sand, I created after having moved to Seattle area. It dawned as me as I was piecing Butterfly Kisses that it is a near year to the date of having pieced Surf and Sand and I am using same fabrics and color scheme....Thinking that each year in April I will piece a new quilt for the series. Plenty for next year's quilt tucked away in a drawer. Ever take a right turn on your travels when your destination is straight ahead? Two days ago on the way to a lunch date with Sean in Georgetown, I had the feeling I should go to Alki Beach in West Seattle. I had an hour....TO my delight as I chose a spot to sit and listen to the barking seals and lapping waves, in front of me was a family of Geese and to watch the triplets sleep, wake up, and then take a field trip was a delight. Happy Thursday! Off to enjoy a day of sunshine with my hubby. Em

Love those colors. They are cool and refreshing just like the water.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very
easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here
and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
Fantastic work!
