Beautiful beach weekend
The beach in NC was beautiful this weekend. Gusman just loves playing Frisbee on the beach and then taking a dip. I honestly think he would rather play Frisbee than eat. We had two almost perfect days on the beach. The only bad thing was that this time of year they allow vehicles on the beach. Our beaches are so fragile why endanger them more than necessary.
Thanks to so many of you for you encouraging words. I have to admit I had a couple of down days last week thinking of how much fun I had with my new quilting friends from Gwen's retreat. Now I have new cyber-quilting friends!
I loved working with solids and I am almost ready (not quite) to throw out all my other fabrics. Gwen says there are so many advantages to working with solids. One is that there is no right and wrong side to the fabric. Some of you asked about the colors. we all chose our colors before we came and almost everyone wished they had brought some color they didn't have. At the last minute I brought some black and I was so glad. Someone brought a bunch of fabric, some hand dyed, for everyone to use. Everybody was so generous and if you didn't have a color someone was quick to say here use some of mine. There was a small quilt shop in Elk Rapids where we could get some colors if we needed to.
