Summer’s definitely in the air here…has it started for you yet? And if so, have you had a chance to hit the beaches? Our family LOVES going to the ocean for fun and relaxation. And while we’re there, one of my favorite activities is scavenger hunting for all kinds of beachy finds. In the current issue of Somerset Life, you’ll see some of my stitched Summertime souvenirs. I made these memory sparking pieces using recycled dryer sheets…this material’s airy vibe goes well with this time of year. BTW, I created the heart pillows that are featured on the cover of this issue.
These pouches are filled with beach finds from Nantucket Island.
And here are some hearts that I made using similar supplies. I think these hearts would make pretty wedding favors. The how-to instructions to create both of these projects are included in my article, “Pillows & Pouches.”
Within this issue you’ll also see some altered Peat Pots that I created…of course I had to add a couple of birds (the how-to instructions are included within the article.)
Also within this issue under “Locales of Intrigue” you’ll find an article that I wrote which features one of my favorite stores, Nesting on Main. There are many lovely photos taken by Johanna Love to drool over. This store is a definite must see so stop on by if you can, and please say hi to wonderful Wendi for me, if you do go.
