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?
