Holiday In Narrabeen



Indulge me while I share some holiday snaps of where Gbf and I stayed while I attended the Gwen Marston workshops. While I was running around in the sand dunes I realised it had been more than 2 years since I'd last seen the ocean. It's chilly winter time here in Oz but we sure had a great time watching the waves roll in, feeling the sand beneath our feet, and breathing in the salt air. 

If you make it to the end of the photos you'll see where I'm up to with my liberated medallion...


















 Here it is -
 my Liberated Medallion so far ... stay tuned for the next exciting border, I'm not quite sure but it could involve some applique and circles...

Narrabeen is lovely any time of year. You both seem to be having fun.
The medallion is growing quickly and love the colours. A bit of wonkiness too.

I love the beach and will be going in a few weeks. What are those long skinny things that look a little like pine cones?
Your quilt is so fun I can't wait to see what you do next, the colors are my favorites too!

That looks like the perfect winter beach getaway! And the little bits of Nature's inspiration are sure to find their way into a quilt or two.

Love where the medallion quilt is going!

Mmm, looks like the perfect holiday--the ocean, beachcombing, sewing, and hibiscus blooming in the winter! Your medallion is very exciting so far. Can't wait to see what else you do!

Just looked at your medallion again. Those little dark strips are a brilliant addition!

Sasha said...

Gorgeous pictures!!!! What are those long pine cone looking things in different colors? They are so pretty =D
I love your medallion quilt!!!

What serene calm colors in the (are they pinecones?) photo. I'm excited to see the next part of your quilt!

Heather said...

I love the colour combination in the shot of the line of 'monkey tails' - (that is what we call the norfolk pine leaves here in NZ, if you wondered what I meant).

Neverbeen to Narabeen but it looks great. Winter is Australia is most excellent I reckon. Snow is pretty an all but freezing is too cold and I like our blue skies and unfrozen water!

Karen said...

Looks like a lovely spot to stay.
Great to see the medallion continuing to grow.

Katy Cameron said...

Looks like a lovely location, even in mid winter!

Barb said...

Love the look of the medallion quilt!!

Ann-Maree said...

I like seeing those "Martha" rectangless in there too, Rachel! I have not progressed any further with mine but school's back today!

I love how the borders of the medallion are defined by the darker strips.
