I wiped away the weeds & foam. / I fetched my sea-born treasures home... Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hi! It's Friday again. 42*/ windchill 37* winds NNW at 34 mph
Time for the beach.

I love this bench.
 I plan to spend many summer evenings here.

pleasantly empty

the blue is the reflection of the sky
a horseshoe crab coming ashore to lay her eggs.

she's about the size of a soccer ball


Coming home: nothing says Happy like forsythia in bloom. Maybe it's mundane---but so wonderful to me.

I used the outtake blocks of the antique quilt top to make a small crib quilt [or large doll quilt?]. The little bits of fabric were too special to just fold away, unused. 

Have a great weekend. Wish me good luck / good karma for the flea [s].



gone to the beach

evening - a squall out over the ocean.
See the ribbons of rain, unfurling grey.
