beach stitching

These last several days I've enjoyed a lovely time at a girls retreat on the Oregon Coast.  It has been full of fun, laughter, and relaxing!  I have also squeezed in some stitching on the beach.  It can't get much better than that!

I've been working on my jewel star quilt.  

 I'm getting close to done with stitching them all together!  :)

 Tasha working on some cutie little hexies!  

 Tasha helping Ninzel make her first hexie!  Oh, so fun!

 A polka dot hexie!

As tradition we did some fun beach photos, and this year the colors were red, white and aqua!   :)

I surely do the beach!

 Tasha and I being silly! Hehe!

All the girls!

Fun with posing!

Red toesies in the sand!
