Wilmington North Carolina

I’ve been meaning to blog about a few highlight pictures of my families Thanksgiving Vacation on the North Carolina Coast. Better late than never! Today I’m sharing a few images from our visit to Wilmington. This City pre-dates the Colonial era. I highly recommend studying Wilmington’s history. We walked around the Cape Fear River Front and also visited a few shops. I did manage to take a few pictures of houses. The historic district homes are stunning! -Stephanie

 

Beach Vibes & A Story

meI hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday! We spent ours in Kure Beach, North Carolina. What a wonderful time with the Family and spending time on the beach and hanging out in Wilmington for a couple hours with my mother and sister. I took a lot of great pictures and will be sharing them in the coming days.

To the right is one I took on November 30th. Even though I am a Florida Native, I adore the North Carolina Coast and hope to live there one day. For now I’ll visit as much as possible. With the beautiful scenery of the ocean and the coastal towns, I have been inspired for new art projects I want to start soon. The art pieces will be a blend of vintage and abstracts themes. 

 

Rebecca Muddiman - No Place Like Home_coverI didn’t get as much reading in as I thought I might but I was a bit distracted. Here is one I listened too and I’m not sure I will write a review for it. However, I did rate the story three stars. Below is the book description:

“What would you do if you came home to find someone in your house?

This is the predicament Polly Cooke faces when she returns to her new home.The first weeks in the house had been idyllic, but soon Jacob, a local man, is watching her.

What does he want and why is he so obsessed with Polly?

In a situation where nothing is what it seems, you might end up regretting letting some people in.”

On the quilting front, I decided that the quilt size I chose isn’t quite big enough for what I’m wanting so I decided to make the quilt larger. I’m really thrilled about this project because I am using my Grandmother’s quilting scraps for the patches on the denim squares.

Have a beautiful Tuesday and be sure to check back more more updates!
