Spring Break at the Beach

I've been meaning to post this picture for a couple weeks now, but with life getting in the way... I've been a bit preoccupied. Since I've started sewing, I took my grandmother up on her offer to come stay with her (by the beach) overnight so that she could teach me a few of her sewing tricks.  That's where I learned to how to sew pillowcases (with French seams -- ooh la la!) as well as receiving blankets.  Both she and my cousins live on the same street -- just two blocks off of the beach in southern Delaware.  Fortunately, while I was there visiting, the weather was HOT!  Unfortunately, I did not plan ahead for that and so I was stuck in jeans the whole time.  Wah!  I'll just have to plan another trip, and remember to pack my bathing suit!

PS: In case you're wondering, this photo is from 1962 -- it's my grandmother and my dad.  See any family resemblance?
