I have pictures to add and lots to tell from my retreat last week but that will have to wait until tonight. Until then...

Here's a link to a great giveaway from 44th Street Fabrics...drop in and take a look.

  Our giveaway for March is for 1/2 yard of each of the small chevrons shown here:


for a TOTAL of 3 and 1/2 yards of fabric. And, if you want to make something, I'm throwing in a bag  pattern by Jennifer Jangles!

Sandbridge Day 6:

The weather hasn't been fabulous but we've had some sun. Here are pictures of the beach and one more quilt top I started yesterday and finished today.

This is the quilt top I started yesterday for baby Zachary.

Here's what the water has looked like the past couple of mornings.
Just before sunrise this morning. The lights are a barge ut in the water dredging the shipping lanes.  

Retreat at Sandbridge Beach, VA or a Week in Heaven!

For the past week I have been living at the beach in a 9 bedroom house ...eating, drinking, sewing, creating and just spending some quality "girl" time with 13 fabulous ladies. What could be better, right? We've watched movies and eaten tons of food (although I have been very good because I am eating Paleo and have pretty much stuck to my hubby and my new way of eating...yes!).

So what have I accomplished you ask?

Here's a photo of the first one:

Here's me on hands and knees putting this quilt together row by row.


Here's another one of me working on this quilt. It's a present for my niece and her husband who have only been married about a year!

Here's the finished top hanging over the railing. It's for a queen sized bed but it seems really big!

Going Japanese Style...

I joined the coolest Modern Japanese BOM on Flickr...I'm spreading my kimono wings...Modern Japanese BOM. Here are the first two I made. More to follow soon. 

I'm using Joel Dewberry fabrics in yellows and grays. I love how they are turning out.
