Sometimes the best way to work on a project is to step away from it. I have hit a spot in my latest large project that has made me stop and I will have to re-work things before proceeding. A lot of times I just jump in and do it, but then wish I had taken a little time away. So, in order to refresh myself and give the quilt time to rest, I will go to the beach. There is nowhere else that refreshes me as well. The surf was nice and flat today – great for walking, swimming and finding shells. You never know what ideas may come to you while you are sitting enjoying the sound of the waves.
