Stitching at the Coast

I'm on a mad dash attending to the zillion little details for our show in less than 2 weeks, but not so busy that I couldn't escape to the coast last week.

My friend, Cindy, was visiting from CA, so we headed to one of our favorite places--Neskowin on the Oregon coast.

I haven't been there in winter and was thrilled to see how dramatic the skies and waves were. We spent most of the week staring out the window and watching the changes as storms passed through:

Unfortunately, the Oregon coast is too dangerous for beach walking in winter, so I had to head inland, which wasn't such a bad thing.

Lots of beauty there:

Magic mushrooms sprouting everywhere:

And it was perfect weather for sitting inside, talking and stitching. Cindy was working on these confections:

And I was very happy working on my pile of baubles:

I would love to get them put into a large piece for the show, but not sure if that will happen. Maybe I just have a very good start on next year's show.

We rounded out our week with lots of good food, antique shops and estate sales and were two very happy girls. (Cindy's the cute blond and I'm the not-too-much-brunette-left.)

How lovely to see your face!

Oh that Oregon coastline is very dramatic and beautiful, what a lovely place to visit, even in winter.

Loving your baubles and cant wait to see what you do with to see what Cindy is doing with hers too. Those little fabric pieces look like they have been shibori tied.

Wow a whole week at the beach with your friend!? sounds like Heaven. Your posted photos look like fun hand work. Love those baubles.

The picture of you and Cindy is a good one, you are both cute and look like you have been enjoying each others company. Now I have a face to put to your blog/work. Thanks for sharing.

That is good shot of you and Cindy, what fun you must have had. The second to the last photo looks very yummy like a fruit salad. It left me wanting a better look.

Robin, your coast photos are gorgeous and I love the one of you and Cindy. I agree that winter at the Oregon coast is full of beauty. There is no better way than to share a trip like this with friends.

Looks like you had a lovely time in Neskowin, such a great little coast enclave. And your photographs are visually stunning . . .

Hello Robin,
I have been enjoying your blog for a while now and thought I should finally let you know how much I enjoy your colorful and creative use of fabric.
I bought a couple of your cards at the open door show and love them.
