Eliott’s by the sea

GJ invited us to her beach house for Eliott Stitchers last week. I actually went down the evening before and the next morning, being the only one awake, I set off for a walk and a peruse of the neighbourhood, ending up with trying to find the sea. I could hear the waves and knew I should be close with the bent tea tree and sand giving added clues!

Back at the beach house, GJ had been shopping at Treehouse

    After viewing all of your fab applique photos these many years, sigh….., I’m thinkin’, I will have to get me some of those little applique/double pins and jump right in. Next winter I/we will spend several months in our little Texan place (no Sweet 16!) and hand work will be the perfect answer. Keep those awesome photos coming!!! Love the gnarled tree/sand and sea photo……dreamy!!!

    YAY!!!!! Great Work Sweet Meredithe!!! I LOVE your pretty little blocks — and how fun to have been able to stitch them by the sea — it all looks so beautiful. I think that second block that you’re working on is my favorite of the six main blocks, so I’m looking forward to seeing yours all done! GREAT WORK — Brownie Points this week!!! ;-D
