Just a note: Keep your comments coming until the September 7 drawing. If your comment doesn't appear its because I might not have any internet at THE LAKE this holiday weekend!
Growing up living on one of Michigan's most beautiful lakes - Higgins, surrounded by the massive in-land seas of the Great Lakes, summer seemed forever and childhood seemed idyllic. A move as a young adult took me to the shore of the Chesapeake Bay, Virginia and the peace of crashing waves continued.
I could say the sand, water and seashore are just in my blood.
The Sea Foam collection by Island Batik is so very, reminiscent of the varied textures and colors of growing up in a cottage, with its homey unmatched furniture and covered cushions
Wave with its beadboard-like, straight-line echo quilting, was tentatively designed as a prototype of a very large wall hanging, but grew organically out of the sea of these lovely batik fabrics into a table mat. 24" x 46"

A most favorite 'seaside' snack:
1 hotdog, grilled over an open fire + 1 hotdog bun + Condiments to taste. Assemble carefully and sit on the dock with the water lapping at your feet. Repeat as desired! Ahhh! Childhood memories.
