I am making some progress on my Travellers Blanket. I have pinned the three layers of the quilt together and started to applique squares of fabric on top. I had great fun auditioning lots of fabrics from my stash and coming up with 63 squares that somehow relate to the beach and the area around here, and that also fit my colour scheme. (I can't believe I had that many different fabrics - well, yes I can!  But it was nice not to have to buy anything new.) Once all the squares are attached I will start adding some embroidery.

 I have also finished and added another little bird to my collection. 

Nothing very exciting has happened at the beach lately apart from a man falling off his horse and being carted off in an ambulance. I didn't think you'd want to see pictures of that! (I can report that both man and horse are OK.)  Anyway here is a lovely reflection photo taken a few weeks ago.


  1. love the way you're attaching those squares. nice reflection photo.

  2. I enjoy seeing your beach adventures and I love your birds...they have curious, alert personalities...thanks for stopping by my blog!
