Design Wall Monday--see more Design Walls on Judy's Small Quilts and Doll Quilts blog.
Playing with scraps again, I made a mini or doll quilt. Initially it was only 4 rows tall, but seemed far too small so I rummaged about in the 2.5" scrap drawer for more pieces. The HSTs finish at 2 inches. I haven't decided if borders will be added. I have just enough of the silver and white dot for borders on two sides, probably.
I've not worked on the bookshelf quilt for my niece in over a week, but did reread directions and cut some of the strips narrower, due to the recommendation of cutting most of them about 2 inches wide. I assume this is to get more books on the shelf :) Since I did a big clean up after my scrap play, the sewing room is ready to go.
I ventured down to the Harbor to watch the sunset last week. The sun sets behind our Channel Islands this time of year. In the left middle of the photo, you can see two figures--some teenaged girls were bearing the cold Pacific. On the right middle of the photo is the harbor entrance, a man-made rock jetty, like the one I was standing on jutting out from the beach. Some buoys also mark the entrance and I watched a number of fishing boats make their way home.
From the Harbor entrance side of the jetty, lots of pelicans favor the calmer waters. This pic is looking toward the northwest edge of town. There is a lot of flying back and forth between the jetty and some nesting grounds south of the harbor.
I love going down there any time of day, but sunset is my favorite.
