My Day in the Sand

 


I would like to thank CAROL for being the creator of yet another fabulous Hop.  Although I am not a 'sand and sea' kind of gal - I have a huge fear of deep water (and swim like a stone).  BUT, I like a chance to create even when  something is outside my comfort zone.


I dug thru a couple of scrap totes as I remembered a handful of seafoam blue and sandy scraps I received at some time from someone.  AND I think there was some flip flops in the bits of eye spy pieces in another tote.  Items found and a quick project evolved.


 I don't have anything to set up a beachy photo op.  A simple patch work, semi barbello look to sand and sea and salt.  The colorful flip flops walking up the waters edge.  I quilted it with a double wave for a ripple affect and raw edged the flip flops.


 Some polka dot left overs from backing used up for the envelop back and I squeeked the aqua binding from a scrap.

  3. Look how sweetly you pulled pieces from languishing in storage and gave them a carefree beachy life as a pillow. Such a cute idea to have the flip flops walking along the waters edge. A great project from stash and inspirational too.
