Every summer, my family is fortunate to be able to vacation on the NC Outer Banks. There are several lighthouses one can visit but the most iconic is the Hatteras lighthouse.
Although the photo doesn't show it well, I stitched on the phrase Sand, Sun, Surf on the blue sky and OBX on the sand.
This mini was a great project to try several new (to me) techniques. It was the first time I tried to reproduce a photograph - my inspiration was this photo:
It was the first time I try painting with thread - and this was SO MUCH FUN!
And it is my first every blog hop!
To celebrate all of the above, I am having a small giveaway of two fat quarters with a beach like theme. (I used the lighthouse fabric on the back of my mini.)
To enter, just leave a comment and tell me where your favorite beach is located. One comment per person - you don't need to follow my blog although I'd love it if you did. Giveaway closes Saturday evening April 28th at 11 pm est. Winner will be contacted via email.
Samm, thanks for organizing such a fun blog hop! Now it is time to go visit the other lovely ladies participating today:
