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! :)
