in the hoop

a few years ago lucky enough to win a layer cake of sandy gervais' "rambling rose" fabrics. made up this little wallhanging with some of that and it is now in the hoop and should be finished by week's end.  goodbye another UFO!  i love the delicate colors in this fabric line....

this was the doll quilt i sent along to mary ellen in lori aka humble quilts' annual swap.  it was well received, which is always nice.  with a significant repro stash, it's easy to find ideas for small projects like this...

and a couple of more shots of the ocean venue visited recently....

the beach really is quite narrow and long and the one "in your face" view is the infamous bay bridge.  there are plenty of shady places to sit and grill and just chill out though....and today i do mean's only 48 degrees here now.  another lovely monday and a whole week ahead.   later on will pick up the senior center's quilt of valor and bring that home to finish the quilting.  other than a few household things, plenty of sewing time available....keep calm and quilt on!


  1. That Sandy Gervais is just gorgeous! It strikes me as the essence of cottage chic. Just love it!

  2. You're back to daily blogging! I hope that means your computer is behaving itself now. You have many great projects in the works -- love the plaid bargain basement blocks. It's the soft turquoise in these stars that really caught my eye. Chilly winds here, too, coming off the lake. No beach walks for a while.

  3. Sandy Gervais does "whimsical" so well. I love her stuff!
    You made a beautiful little quilt for the swap. I can believe it was well received.
    For those of us with no ocean beach around, this looks like a wonderful beach spot. : )
