Beach Trip and Some Hand Piecing

 Kathy and I took a much needed road trip to California this weekend.  I prepped up twelve little flowers to handsew on the way there and back and umm, well I sewed one!  I love it, it is tiny, tiny.  It is for the doll quilt group I belong to on yahoo.  Apparently in October we will be making a doll quilt with these tiny flowers on it so our fearless leader (Sentimental Quilter) gave us a heads up to get the hand sewing done.  All of these little one's together are about the size of one of my other project!
 Here we are at the beach.  We drove up and down the coast and stopped whenever the mood struck us.  We wound up spending the most time at Oceans Beach which has a dog beach because we just had to have Bug with us.  She took it all in stride (and slept all the way home) and there were tons of dogs to watch at the beach.
 It really was relaxing and meditative and I spent part of the trip letting go of the past and embracing the present so I can make it to the future.  I still don't understand and have accepted that I never will.  Life is that way sometimes.  It was a good trip but we are glad to be home and I hope to sew tomorrow!
