Last week while my blog was posting about Flora's quilts I was actually spending a lot of time staring at this. It was my family's annual trip to Hatteras, NC. This was the view from the house deck and we had perfect weather all week. I got to spend a lot of time on the beach walking and reading.
But someone of Scots-Irish heritage can't spend too many hours in the sun so I set up a little sewing space outside our bedroom and worked on my 4th of July quilt.
I got the rest of these sections done for the center blocks of the quilt. I think I'm ready to start working on the border blocks, unless I decide to make a queen size.
We all love our annual get-together and I hope we can keep doing it for many years to come.
We got back Sunday and I spent yesterday washing cars and doing laundry. We have lots of company coming today so I'm slow getting back into gear but I should be mostly back to normal by Wednesday.

That is a lot of blue water!! I'm glad you had good weather this year.

I really understand that heritage thing. I burn in less than an hour under hot sun thanks to heritage (Scots/Irish/English) and a medication that I have to take which just increases that sensitivity.

Your pictures make me want to head to the ocean! Gorgeous blue water! Me being Irish/German, oh do I sunburn quick! When I do go to the ocean, it is up early to walk the beach and hide during the day. Then back out to the water in the evening. It's good that you got more done on your 4th of July quilt. I am anxious to see what it will end up looking like.

What an incredible view! I wouldn't want to go home after spending a week with that. Even better to share it with family.
