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 peace...it 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?
