Manzanitas napkins

While staying on the coast in Manzanitas, Oregon over Christmas,
I was often the first one up in the morning. 
I would brew a cup of tea, 
bundle up in layers and take a solitary walk on the beach.
The horizon, the waves, the fog, the wind, the sand and
the was all simple perfection.
There were huge, long strands of kelp, 
swept up in great piles along the beach.
I did pick up just a few pebbles (see above).

I used a commercially printed seaweed fabric to make these napkins.
I also used an assortment of black scraps to applique as pebbles.
Maybe I'm sentimental?


  1. Not sentimental at all! You managed to put your
    (= true and right)feelings into your work.
    Very beautiful. Thanks for sharing.


  2. No, you are not. I completely agree with jeanneke.
    take care.

  3. what's wrong with sentimental? the napkins are a perfect reminder of a precious memory. i really can see myself on that beach...thank you for sharing...tqoe

  4. Who can resist picking up stones. . . comfort in the pocket through the day.
