As we head into the weekend, I realize that it is the middle of July. We are past celebrations for the 4th, and there are no major holidays until Labor day. Many are almost ready to go on their annual vacation, whether that be a staycation or a trip to the coast or to visit family, we all want to have some fun. I was thinking about our annual trip to the Oregon Coast where we relax and just enjoy our selves for a couple of weeks. I always take lots of different things to play with while we are there, and for me that means being crafty, or arty in some way. This made me think about what types of supplies I might want to take with me and of course I went on a search of Etsy. Here are a few of the items I found that would be good to take along…
For the sewer/quilter:
