Birthday Buys and the Bay!

Today I wanted to go to our folk art store and treat myself. I saw lots of nice things, but I always talk myself out of buying things, lol. I found this panel and thought it would be fun to practice machine quilting on and make a quick quilt for the kids, at least that is the plan;) I may just use the center panel and the rest as pillows, we shall see.


I also saw this Japanese fabric bundle and thought it would be perfect for some of the pieces in the wool book, even though it isn't wool, it would work great for the applique pieces and I have always wanted to try some.


Then we went to the ocean, a place called Black Rock. There is a path that you can walk on that takes you to the main beach and you can go down smaller paths and walk along the rocks.


We walked along the beach for a bit and spied this fellow, he had found a fresh lunch today.


The problem was, he did not like us near and would move off and the ocean would sweep in and carry it away.

Now where did it go?



Found it!


Heading back from a wonderful walk, we and our shadows.

Looks like a lovely day. I like those shadow shots. I've taken a few of them. I think it would be fun to create a photo book with nothing but shadow shots.
