Finding What Makes You Happy!

If everyday was perfect, would we know the feeling
of the incredible and outstanding days when
 they came our way!

That is what made yesterday so Great!

And this is how it went:
Awoke early to send our son off to high school. 
As of yesterday he has now driven himself to school for 4 days.
When did this happen!
Made plans to meet a friend at the beach.
Gathered my coffee, hand stitching, audio book, beach chair
and off I went.


After I got to the beach.
I made a few of these fabric origami beauties
(I will post more about this in future), while listening to
The Traveling Pomegranates. Now I must say
 "Could Life Get Any Better"

 Yes It Can!
Here is a group of painting students.
I could just feel their excitement.
And I was thinking how much we are all alike in finding 
"Passion" in our hobbies. They were chatting about colors, depth and
perception. Sound a bit familiar!

 And as much warmth and beauty that is found in our studios
(that what I will call it from now on).
There was such a heart felt feeling of seeing their studios
being moved onto the beach.

What a scene!

 And as the eager to learn painters where gathered around their teacher.
I kept thinking that our canvas is fabric and we all feel
the joys of LEARNING something new! 

 And as I turned with my New Camera (I think I am heading into another
passion). I hope you can see him--there is a man with his club in hand
shooting his golf balls.
Looks like he is Happy!

And to top of the Perfect Day, my friend Denise came
 and we chatted for hours. I have known Denise for a short while,
 but we have allot in common and talking for hours was so... easy and so... much fun.
We are planning on revisiting the beach VERY soon.

 So here is a inspiring Sunset a few weeks ago.

And visitor that was in my back yard.

I am new to blogging since January. My plan was to blog consistently.
I have discovered that I am not capable of blogging during July and August.
I have a summer business, blogging and quilting has to take a back burner during that time.
So I will call that time period my "Summer Hiatus" 

So to all of you concerned and curious quilters,
Thank You for checking on me over the summer.

Till We Quilt Again,


  1. Helen, what a wonderful blog post! Great thoughts and pictures! I can feel the warm sea breezes now! And I am loving the background music! Enya is playing right now!

  2. Denise had a great day too! Your pictures really captured the essence of the day! You could feel the sun hitting your knees as you viewed the beach pictures! The sunset is beautiful, I have trouble shooting a sunset. Welcome back to cyberworld! It's nice to have you back! D~

  3. Beautiful and inspiring post!

  4. Here comes the sun thru the trees and I have been reading your blog and enjoying your beautiful pictures. Feel that we are having a fine visit Helen. Your talent abounds and I thank you for your friendship. Foli
