Views of Rainbow Beach
We went a little further north last week and re-visited our old home town, Rainbow Beach.
This was a very windy day, misty day so the coloured sand cliffs are not visible. :-((

Inspiration for my TAST piece this week. The palm trees at the back of our holiday unit.
My piece is still a work in progress. It will have a wavy border all done in buttonhole stitch and I will add a little more colour into the palm leaves. I have only brought a very limited amount of threads to the beach with me and the leaf colour was not really what I was after.
The waves were done with lovely variegated sashiko thread which was gifted to me by Judy. Thanks Judy - I just love the texture this gave me.
There is much more inspiration for the buttonhole stitch on Sharon B's Pintangle page HERE and also on Stitchin' Fingers. Amazing how much can be done with the humble buttonhole stitch (blanket stitch)
This beach bum life is pretty darn good - coming to an end on Thursday. :-(( sad, sad, face.
