One more time! We had a spectacularly beautiful weekend on the Oregon Coast. Great weather, beautiful sunsets, camaraderie and crafts. I’ll put the scenic photos at the end. Yarn and other craftiness first!
I brought three knitting projects, but I only worked on one of them. I spent a day trying different ways to reverse the colors on the new section, and I’m finally happy with how it’s working out. It was a technical challenge.
Now it’s just a matter of finishing it! I may have to set it aside for a bit; another project has a deadline and needs to get underway.
Laurie was crocheting unicorns. So cute!
Sharyn brought supplies for block printing on tea towels. I brought some of my previous blocks, and carved a new flower block. I purchased these bags last year in Sisters during the Lantern Moon retreat, but hadn’t gotten around to printing them yet. Done!
This is pretty easy, and lots of fun. I see more of this in my future!
This was our 16th year at Rockaway Beach. The house looks right over the water so it’s perfect for any weather. But this year it was sunny all weekend.
We stayed Friday afternoon through Monday morning. It would have been hard to go home on such a gorgeous day, so I didn’t! I had a free night expiring soon at Tolovana Inn in Cannon Beach, so Carole and I headed north for an overnight there. It was so warm that I bought a sundress and walked barefoot on the beach.
The afternoon low tide was perfect for tide pooling.
We only saw two sea stars; I hope they’re coming back.
The anemones look pretty healthy!
The moon was nearly full, and the early morning moonset was gorgeous to behold.
It clouded over as the day went on, but that made it easier to head home. It was a perfect weekend!
Bisquee missed me. A lot.
And today (Friday), we brought this guy home. He’s 2 years old. His shelter name was Frumpkin. That’s got to go. But I don’t know what to call him yet. Working on it…
The fun never stops around here!
