I've been away from my sewing machine this week, but hand-piecing was possible and this little bowtie block is the perfect one to represent our trip!
We did not see dolphins, but we did see gray whales and tons of birds - pelicans, cormorants, seagulls - and seals, sea lions, and otters.
I particularly love seeing the pelicans, and there were lots of them in several places that we visited. Mike enjoys trying to get photos of them gliding along.
I was able to finish up eight bowties in aqua for the month of September.
I've pieced 72 of these so far this year, and here they all are:
Isn't this going to be fun?!
One of my favorite souvenirs from a trip is fabric, and we had the chance to visit a great little quilt shop in Cannon Beach, Oregon, called Center Diamond. I don't often buy kits, but I loved this small landscape project, and they offered a kit for it, so I thought - why not?! I'll be making the quilt on the right on the cover of the pattern. I'm excited to get to work on it!
What have you been working on this week? I'll be checking in over at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday to see all the September projects!
