Perfectly coastal


We came out to the house yesterday morning---it is promising to be a very stormy weekend which is just fine with us, as our plans are to read and do some crafts and sit by the fire and watch a movie.  Hopefully the dogs will get a little walk in there at some point. We went to lunch yesterday at the brewpub on the beach and went to look at the ocean after---this is high tide and it was quite churny.

Car Knitting

I did some knitting on Circus Movement in the car. 
The two pinks are not a great match, I know, but they play nicely together in the striped section.

I think this is one of those things when the darkest purply color gets introduced it will pull it all together Or maybe it won't. We'll see.  I think it will all end up working fine.

25 Million Stitches

I had wrote about this project once---an effort to have people stitch panels that will eventually total up to 25 million stitches to raise awareness of the immigration crisis. I started on my panel.

"A refugee is someone who survives and who can create the future". After I stitch the quote in black, I'll fill it in with lots of running stitches in all kinds of colors. Many people who are stitching are doing that, as it accumulates a lot of stitches fast and adds a lot of color and energy to the piece.

Happy Weekend!
