I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Mother's day weekend! It was peaceful here at the farm. Sunday the sun broke through the clouds long enough for me to enjoy a great beach walk. That is until a storm blew in quite quickly! It rained before I could get home...
This morning, we walked down to the new cottage location.
He's done a lot of trimming! The birch, maple and spruce trees will love the added light!
I look for treasures of the sea... small driftwood pieces, sea glass, unusual rocks... I call this one the Medusa tree... it'll be awhile before the sand gives this one up.
Some insect bored it's way around this branch
and along the trunk.
Seaweed covered the beach... that doesn't happen every day...
This reminded me it was time to head back home and load Lolah!! What a great feather design.
At Christmas, I was gifted with a software program called Quilter's Creative Design and decided to try it. One fabric on the quilt has red hearts on a white background so I chose the hearts. The beauty of this software is that you can size the design to the quilt whether it's for a pantograph or an individual block. I entered the width of the quilt top and the size I wanted the design then printed the panto.
I call this one Hearts On A Rail... another top I purchased last summer at the local quilt fair.
The ocean smelled wonderful this morning. It gave up some lovely treasures; it's not often that we find blue sea glass on this side of the peninsula. Reds are even rarer.
My time on the beach rejuvenated me enough to load Lolah and finish quilting this beauty in one afternoon! I love that!
I'm linking to The Needle and Thread Network and Let's Bee Social.
The hearts look great on the rails. Thanks for sharing the beautiful ocean pictures.ReplyDelete

Thank you for stopping by Marjorie.Delete
Wonderful quilting. Lovely beach photos, blue and red glass you lucky thing! I am collecting glass from the beach at the end of my road to make a mobile with - finding lots of green, a few bits of brown but not much clear, definitely no blue or red!ReplyDelete
Well Sam, they are rare here too. Red is hardly ever seen in my neck of the beach! Blue is not easy to find either. Good luck to you in finding those colors. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.Delete
You're so lucky to live so close to the water, someday I'll get back to it. :) Pretty quilt. The hearts were just the thing!ReplyDelete
Thank you. We do feel lucky to have this land with beachfront. Winters may be long but this is home! Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments Rachel.Delete
Many thanks for your beach tour--that's a lovely spot where you live. Nice quilting as well--great job!ReplyDelete
Thank you Momiji. We love it here.Delete
Looks like you were enjoying the spring weather... Rain and all! Those are some wonderful pieces found on your tour of the beach. We live on a farm, too, but not anywhere near a beach. Those hearts were the perfect choice for quilting up the red and white quilt. You and Lolah make a great pair!ReplyDelete
Spring is finally here Lorna! The weather has been great this week allowing the land to dry. Our farm used to be active but no longer... no animals here except the wild ones. Thanks for visiting!Delete
Thanks for taking us along as you strolled along the beach. What lovely treasures you found. Hearts on a Rail is lovely and the quilting really adds to it.ReplyDelete
Hi Jo! You're welcome!! Love the beach walks... can't wait for grandson to come walking with me! Thank you for your kind comment and thanks for visiting!Delete
