Once in a Blue Moon...

"The moon will wax to its full phase at 9:58 a.m. EDT Friday, bringing August's full moon count to two (the first one occurred Aug. 1). Two full moons won't rise in a single month again until July 2015."

Happy Blue Moon!  It seems like that's how often I've been posting lately  - once in a blue moon!!

Truth is, and I don't like to complain on my blog too much, but I've been nursing a shoulder injury since my move last month and it's really affecting my beading and my computing!   

I've slowly, but surely been working on my project for Beading Babes.  I miss my old bead room, but I'm managing just fine at the dining room table!

One thing I have been doing religiously is walking down to the Bay.  It's only a quarter mile away from our house, so I usually take one of the pups and go hang out at the little walking bridge and think and plan for a little bit.

And sometimes I am lucky to catch a pretty sunset!

There are so many wonderful birds out there, but they hardly ever show up on my phone camera pictures!
It's Friday, so that means a free pattern.  So here is a cute little lily!  These squares measure 1.5"x1.5" and have been designed to use for the Bead-It-Forward quilt project for 2013!

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Great shots! It almost looks like a little rain was falling in the sunset pic. I have my tripod and camera ready for the rises at 7!

  2. Hi Amy,
    I'm so sorry to hear about your arm I hope that it gets better soon. It must be nice to have a peaceful place to walk to every day and think. I love the sunset shot and I can see two rain showers in the distance.

  3. Beautiful pictures, hope your shoulder is better soon, I know what that's like, broke mine 5 years ok and still suffer. I would love to walk down by a bay!

  4. Love the shot of your dining table lit only by a lamp. It is very atmospheric. Good on you for walking every day. I soooo need to do that :-)

  5. Beautiful pictures!! So sorry to hear your shoulder is still in pain ... Hugs!

  6. Sorry to hear about your shoulder! I understand. When my arm acts up, writing is a chore :)

    We were able to sit outside the evening of the blue moon. It was lovely!

    Happy Thursday! Hope your shoulder gets better soon!
