I always forget how absolutely peaceful looking at the ocean is, until I'm actually in front of it. After a quick trip to the beach, I am coming back refreshed and ready to start new projects. My friend and I got to know some of the locals during our visit. . . this is Murth! She showed us around Seaside, and we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide.

July Sewing

It has been a while since I have sewn anything for myself, so I decided to make a few must-have summer items:

A sunglasses case (SO easy I made a couple for friends) using some County Fair canvas fabric by Denyse Schmidt.

When visiting quilt market in the spring, Tanya Whelan had these drawstring bags made from her new fabric line Ava Rose on display. I couldn't get them out of my head, so I decided to whip one of myself! Simple, and perfect for an overnight venture or a trip to the beach!
