I was in the mood to stitch something 'beachy', but I didn't really know what I would use it for. Then I found one of the Cole's Quilt kids who liked beaches. I downloaded the design from PatternsOnLine, kind of taking a chance on what it really looked like since the photo wasn't too detailed. After signing up, I wasn't sure I really wanted to stitch all that sand, sea and sky. I really just liked the motifs. But I was committed so I bit the bullet. Turned out that I loved stitching this piece. I did the sky in 1/2 x-stitch so it went pretty fast. And I'm very satisfied. The photo may look like the fabric is blue, but it's really white. The design is by Sharon Pope.
