ocean inspired

shells Last week we took a teensy weensy mini vacation south to thaw out after all the freezing temps here in the Midwest. We were intending for it not to be so short, but our flight was cancelled because of snow and we ended up only having one whole day to soak up as much sun as possible.

But it was enough. We spent the day collecting bits from the ocean and digging in the sand and watching wild dolphins. In a word - lovely.

I collected the bitsĀ (above) and brought them home with me. And then did a few patterns inspired by the oceanĀ (below).
