Fishing getaway weekend pictures

Probably some of you  know that after a long debate I signed up for twitter. I'm not gonna say it's a big mistake, but I knew this will happen.  I'm finding myself spending more and more in front of the computer instead of in my sewing room.  I haven't done much sewing since I last posted, except some commission pants hemming and button sewing, etc. You can follow me if you'd like, my twitter name is @katisquilting.
To take me even further away from my sewing room the weather seemed to be perfect to go up to the Cape for a fishing trip. No, I'm not the one to fish :) I packed up my The Quilt Life magazines and some books on Applique and off we went. We left very early on Friday morning and got there by 9 o'clock which  was pretty awesome comparing to some people who were just rolling out of bed :)
The weather was supposed to be rainy, but to our surprise it was pretty nice. It was overcast, but  no rain and later in the morning the sun came out. I took a long walk on the beach, being low tide taking photos of the rocks and sand textures that  the ocean created. Speaking of which I just realized I haven't even uploaded the photos on my computer. DUH!

A huge horseshoe crab  shell on the  beach:

The birds were looking for food after the waves recieded:

I love the texture of the sand ripples:

Saw some seal swimming:

This one was posing for me to take a picture:

Lots of horseshoe crab shells:

Seagull's got something:

I got to relax a lot, our hotel was one of the nicest I've ever been. Right on the beach with a view from our room. I finished reading my magazines which was awesome because  I hardly get to them anymore (see blaming twitter above).

I am also in the process of cleaning up/re-organizing my sewing room. I took "before" photos, but only will post them when the "after" shots are done.
The 4th quarter Finish Along is coming up soon, so I'll dig up some of the things I have laying on the side. I have some old swapped blocks with fall leaves, and also some blue and white blocks. I'll post a picture of everything in my next post.
I have so many ideas in my head, I'm afraid I'll start a gazillion projects as soon as I'm able to sit down to sew. Still have to convince myself to  make the second curved pieced block for September for the Craftsy BOM.

'Til we blog again! :)


  1. Looks like a nice weekend away! You rarely see crab shells on our local beach though! More likely the dreaded bluebottles or sea weed hehe.

    I just signed up for Twitter too. But I have NO idea what I'm doing haha!

  2. I totally understand what you mean about twitter. I have been thinking the same thing lately and I need to break myself of this habit.

  3. Looks like a beautiful place to relax! Can't wait to see your sewing room!

  4. I had that debate with myself too,but decided No on Twitter! I already spend too much time on the computer and not enough time in the sewing room. (ahem,like at the present moment)
    Your photos are strikingly vivid,almost like I was there looking instead of just seeing a photo! Wish my picture taking skills were that good :) Looks and sounds like it was a wonderful getaway!

  5. Loving the photos and that you took them at such a low angle/level - makes me feel like I actually there :)


I am truly glad you visited, and a special thanks to You for taking your time to leave a comment! It always makes me smile when people write to me. Thanks, from the bottom of my heart! :)
