A blog about quilting, stitching and embroidery by the sea --
Even if it is only a state of mind.

Those Who Served - Veteran's Day
Today I would like to take a moment and ask everyone to remember the Veterans who gave the greatest sacrifice of all -- their life -- for us and our country. God Bless America -- Land of the Free and Home of the Brave!
I have been involved in some sort of handwork most of my life -- sewing, counted cross stitch, embroidery and quilting. I love the sea and all things that you think of when someone mentions the "sea" -- the feel of sand between your toes, watching waves crash against the sand, lighthouses or the sunrise on an empty beach. I have traveled the East Coast and Great Lakes to visit and photograph lighthouses. Someday I hope to incorporate those pictures into a lighthouse photo quilt.
