Beach top

remember this???? well here is the top of the quilt... it is not the planned pattern that I had scripted, but all the more beautiful!
I had fun pulling together all the primary colors as well as the hawaiian theme. I think the greatest thing about crafting is thinking about the person who it is for, as you sew, stitch, knit and create away. The thought of a new baby, the wonder if it is a boy or a girl, the loving parent this child will have.... oh, the things that I have wished over this blanket as I begin to finish it for my bestie and her new addition coming soon!
today my dining room table was a bit of a mess again ( not surprised!)
but the outcome was a finished quilt top and lots of thinking of a sweet little one coming....
a pretty great day if I say so myself!
these close ups are so Meg can click to see the fabrics that were chosen..... I think you'll like them!


  1. I think the best part will be you delivering it to us!!! Can't wait to see you in a few short months!

  2. I love the fabrics you chose. It's absolutely darling. And thinking about a new baby is a great way to spend your day. Well done on the quilt!

  3. I'm glad you're table looks like mine!

    Will you email me some tips on compost tea???

  4. mmmm..... compost tea... coming up!

  5. That is definately the best bit - the thinking as you craft - how clever does it make you feel when you just know it is going to suit perfectly? The best high in the world! :D
