At the beach – part 1

I’ve just come back from 3 delightful days down at the beach with GJ. On Tuesday nine of us sat out on the deck of GJ’s beach house, cooled by seaside breezes. There were some beautiful projects being stitched…….

GJ was making a necklace

20160115-202059.jpgCarolyn has been having a clear out and found this bag

20160115-202134.jpgfilled with lots of these blocks, and the pattern, and the templates!

20160115-202220.jpgAmanda stitched hexies on a border

20160115-202257.jpgand had a pile of Quilty365 circles prepped

20160115-202428.jpgHeather was making a necklace too

20160115-202456.jpgEmma was working on something special for the shop, so this is all you’ll get

20160115-202729.jpgbut she did have her Clam Shell quilt too

20160115-202817.jpgCathie had this gorgeous basket

20160115-203047.jpgand very cute shoes to boot……or shoe!

20160115-203122.jpgand this is the back of that quilt

Janine’s basket caused basket-envy too

20160115-203841.jpgand yes, there was food too……

  1. Thank you for sharing, especially the clamshells. I’m quite partial to clamshells. This post is full of colour and inspiration perfect on this cold winter’s day.

    Basket envy??? Let’s just talk about PROJECT envy! Wow! SO many great projects all packed into one post. I don’t know if I could survive as much inspiration as you’re constantly surrounded by, you lucky duck! LOVE those clamshell selections — I SO want to make one. And how fun to be able to go to the beach house — sounds perfect!!!

    When you all get together for beach time it looks like everyone has so much fun. The projects are so great to look at. Amanda’s prepped circles look like biscuits in a tin and Cathie’s shoes are just way too cute. Glad you all had a good ttimeime
