I have just returned from a week long celebration of my daughter’s 15th birthday. She, her BFF and I spent three days driving through the Olympic Peninsula with stops in Sequim, Port Angeles, Forks and Lake Quinalt, each more beautiful than the last.
I took tons of photos, the scenery is spectacular and very inspiring. At first all I packed was my sketchbook and water colors but my friend Amy suggested that I take some fabric and threads, which I did. I threw in a piece of hand dyed linen and two bags with ongoing “experiments”. And my needle lace book.
After travelling around the peninsula we settled down to four days in Ocean Shores. I took out my materials and started a project with what I had on hand. It was eye opening. It was what I wanted to be doing, not what I felt I should be doing.
Tomorrow I’ll show some pictures of my work in progress.
Thank you Amy. You knew just what I needed to do.
