first of all....

a hundred thousand thanks for all who visited me on my "12 days" post....over 500 people took a peek and that is totally amazing!  thanks for stopping by....

vacation is in full swing and right away after picking up the rental behemoth (an SUV), we made a beeline for the coast and picturesque boothbay harbor.  it's a special location for my mom that sends her back to her young married days....


and a revealing disappointment....my ship DID come in but alas, in the wrong location and when I wasn't there yet (not THIS one, but the yacht on the left, partially seen).  a bit further from the coast in town, saw these....


a huge bed of colorful snapdragons....yellows, pinks, reds...hmmm good palette for a quilt maybe?  stunningly beautiful in the summer sun....and finally this morning, got a chance to spend time with needle and thread--always good....


this was tucked away on its noodle in my suitcase just waiting for some attention....hoping to get it all done so can attach to the other rows when i get home...stay tuned!  ***  it's cloudy and rainy today but beach weather is coming...can't wait  keep calm and play on!

  1. Enjoy your vacation and getting to see your Mother. No matter what the weather, I love being at the ocean. Your idea to wrap your handwork around a pool noodle was a very good one which I will be copying - thank you!
