About me

Hi. You can reach me via email: lizzzz.d@gmail.com

I am a former fashion designer who gave up the NYC craziness for a quiet life at the beach. The beach and ocean fill my days...the first thing I do every day is look out my windows at the ocean. To, you know, just see? what the day may bring. I love long beach walks and beachcombing, looking for treasure for my folk art. I make quilts, repair quilts, and collect antique quilts. If I am not at the beach you'll find me at the flea markets or farmers market.

I sell on both etsy and eBay. Links are on the sidebar of my blog here.

I take a lot of photos, to share with you here.

I read a lot. I knit a little....and sometimes I cook. I hope you enjoy my blog, from the beach.



  1. I love your 365 quilty blocks. Beautiful colors. I just started I only have 2 made so will have to get stitching.

  2. I spent a summer post college, working at the Edgartown Inn on Martha's Vineyard some time ago....there and Cap Cod are just beautiful!!

  3. Found my way here from Sue McQuade's Blessings of Thread blog and will look forward to future visits.

  4. Hi, I just found your blog and am wondering what beach you are at. Love your little quilty creations. I used to quilt, mostly wall hangings. These days I read and crochet.💖
