Taught myself how to reverse appliqué. It’s fairly easy!




What a lovely day we had! The sun peeked out and we have a wonderful time visiting with family and enjoying our day. 



We’re on Spring Break. Well 3 of the children and I are. Our oldest doesn’t have break until April. Jeromy’s was earlier this month. Jeromy worked Saturday and then drove here last night. He’ll spend the entire day with us, then drive home because he has to work Monday. 

We’re at our favorite place – the beach! In Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast. Here’s a few pictures so far. 

There is no other place as relaxing to me. The ocean air and the sand – it is my ultimate stress reliever. 

Today we’ll go into town and go into all the little shops, do some antiquing, forage through stacks and stacks of books in little cramped bookstores and find some yummy place to eat lunch. 

Then we’ll come back to the house (our friends own a second home here and graciously are allowing us to use it) start a fire in the wood stove,  make dinner, play Ticket to Ride or Splendor and relax!!!
