Cape May Diamonds! These are the shells and water/sand worn rocks we collected in New Jersey. You can't really tell in the picture, but some of the rocks are actually quartz stones, worn smooth and lovely by the surf. I think this is what is known as "Cape May Diamonds"! Thanks Pat, I called them pearls in the last post. We also found some beach glass, all the sharp edges worn smooth away. The "diamonds" especially sparkle when they are wet. I love looking at these gifts from the sea, and will always remember the pleasure of walking and gathering them.
My Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt progresses...slowly...These blocks are so much fun to make! Very small pieces in some of them. Eleven made so far and 140 blocks in all to be made!! Whoop!!!
More adventures to follow...a fun adventure this week is in store! I will tell you all about it this week!!
Have a wonderful day,
