OBX finish

Eleven glorious days on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Pea Island Beach
Oregon Inlet Beach
 Kill Devil Hills Beach
Then back to Pea shell findings!

Loads of lighthouses...
 Went on a ghost tour...see the orbs?:)
Did a lot of sunset gazing...
...and wondering....
....and gasping....
....and moon rising.
Taught my neice to do English Paper Piecing!!
Ate loads of good food...especially ice cream! Our goobers!:)
There was a third finish for this quarter.
Only had time and desire for one finish even though three other projects were in my sewing bag!
Just had to do the binding...see the ocean just a block away? 
Quilt's new home on the OBX...seaglass backing included!
Wish we could stay with it!
OBX... we miss you so!!
