Sand, Sunsets, Selvedges, a Flower and a Shower!

 Ahhhh...Outer Banks of North Carolina in October.....Awesome!
While climbing the largest sand dune on the east coast at Jockey's Ridge State Park we watched all the varied looks of a sunset with the girl who is home for a visit from the UK.
 What could be better?
 I'm not the only one that was taking photographs.
 Looking over the Sound.
 Worked on a double Grandmother's Hexy Flower....we are making kits for these at work!

Speaking of work...that was the real reason we were at the beach, so Don could remodel a bathroom and do a few other things.
 He didn't get a lot of time to relax. Among the many things he worked on during our week at the beach this was the main change....from this tub/shower insert to this...

...lovely marble tiled shower!
 While there I finished my Round Robin this staged nicely enough Lynz?:) I had to wait til we returned home so I could put the couch pillows on the bed!
Yesterday I did my first selvedge blocks for Hollie at our Sew Fun Bee.  I don't think I'll be making any more because I just don't remember to save my selvedges!

Hope you've had time to enjoy a great sunset!


  1. That's what I'm talking about!!! *g* I hate when bed quilts aren't photographed on beds - what's the point? I have to say, that's a mighty fine bed, too! It's a stoater of a quilt, lucky girl.

    How long do you have your girl home for?

  2. Feeling jealous of that sunset! After literally weeks of fantastic weather - pretty much form July 4, the weather broke this weekend and boy has it broken! No sun, just gloom and rain rain rain.

  3. Sounds like a great trip and what a treat to come home to a redone bathroom. Yay!

    Missing you. . .
