I received my first Valentine quilt this week from the lovely Anita and I love it. The hearts are so cute and I love the way she has made them look like flowers, Thank you so much Anita , it will hang in my room so when I see it I will think of you .

We have had some rain this weekend ( hooray) and king tides as well, so later today we will go for a walk on the beach to see what damage has been done. We have had a lot of high to king tides over the last few months and the beaches are suffering. A lot of homes that back on to the beaches have in some cases lost up to half of their backyards. You sometimes forget how powerful the sea can be and how it changes our coast. I hope everyone is having a great weekend with lots of sewing or as DH calls it playing.

  1. I really like the Valentine quilt you received, Bec! It is cute!

    We have a lot of beach erosion here, too. A few of the hurricanes and tropical storms over the years did a lot of damage to our shorelines. I think it would be pretty difficult to contain such a force of nature such as the ocean, though. Have you ever noticed that water always seems to go where it wants?!

    Hope you are getting to play/sew, too!

  2. It's very pretty. How lucky you are! It must be quite disturbing to lose half of your backyard. Ann :-)

  3. Nice Quilt for Valentines. I must get on that!
    It'll sneak up on me and I won't be ready.

    Whatis a King tide?

  4. I am glad you like it. It is made with love.

  5. love the quilt.

    Love and hugs Gina xxx
