I am completing this one shortly, it is the same series of 1-3, using lace, beads, and will use charms, buttons, and perhaps use fabric couching. Only when you are inspired at the moment is the adventure completed.

This heart is the second in the series of first ones completed, with beads, a tassell in brass, lace, and fancy fabrics. I just love doing these small projects. First day I posted Karen S and ??. Thankyou so much ladies, this was a very motivating factor for me to do more.

Quiltlet SUMMER THEME

This was my second quiltlet, summer theme, one corner says surfing, another sun, another water, another beach, this represents my experiences at the beach. I love going to the beach summer or winter. The embellishments are couched fabric, beads, buttons, ribbon, face done in polymer clay and painted.

Quiltlet sent to Kathy for Victorianrr swap

This was one of my first quiltlets, had to change doing large quilts because of my injured shoulder and arm with osteoarthritis, sold my Gammill to a friend, bought a commercial juki and went to small quilt and crazyquilting so I could manage the size better.

'BETTER DONE THEN PERFECT" You know how we can get sidetracked with our quilting, this little quiltlet is an ideal size now for me to finish with different fabric added, beads and embellishments.

We arrived this morning from SILVER STRAND STATE BEACH IN CORONADO ISLAND, CALIF., AND DOHENY STATE BEACH IN DANA POINT, CALIF. We went with our daughter and son in law and grandson. The weather required a light jacket for myself, and long pants in the evening. The wind blew more at Silver Strand then Doheny. We barbarqued and shared the dinner meal. My daughter drives a 30' RV, we take our 2005-24' Thor Wanderer Trailer. We were gone 5 days this time. The ocean water was fairly warm, enough to go in for a length of time. Doheny has a lot of rocks in their surf so you can't go out very far without water shoes on.

We came home to somewhat sunny Corona, unloaded our trailer and washed the trailer as well. My Wanderer is certainly a 24' wonderer for me. I have just completed this blog and was trying to figure out how to use it before I left to go camping.

I am also a crazyquilter and embellishments on fabric. We will see how this continues for visitors. Tonight I will go back to work on my chainofhearts group crazyquilt hearts. I usually dye cotton and silk in the summer time so I can be outside, and summer is coming upon us.
Well, this day is ending great, we just returned from camping at SILVER STRAND SB IN CORONADO CAAND DOHENY STATE BEACH IN DANA POINT CALIF. The weather was wonderful, full overcast, yet enough warmth to enjoy the ocean.
