Retirement gift

 Bonnie Hunter's "On Ringo Lake" mystery was gifted to my nursing school friend who just retired.  I couldn't think of a nicer person to receive this quilt  than my good friend Pat.  You can't easily make old friends that have known you half your life :0).  Congratulations Pat for you nearly 40 years of service!

Sweet Land of Liberty

A new sew along on "Humble Quilts" no pattern just winging it...made my USA blocks too small so just added a strip of fabric to the top and bottom.  My challenge with this quilt will be to do most of it by machine.....even the lettering.   Happy Sewing, Kim

On Ringo Lake

 I put this up on my window and Blook how it matches my sewing studio color :0) ( I didn't pick this color it was in the house when we bought it :0).)
Made this one half size due to lack of melon color.  Happy Sewing and Thanks Bonnie Hunter for another delightful mystery.

Beach Time

Nice quiet day today at the beach, the clouds rolled in while the birds were huddled down against the brisk breeze.  I did see this dead octopus floating along with his eyes open.

I got in a nice walk in found a few special shells and called it a day.
