First Light, Last Light







A hint of colour on the white walls drew me eastward to witness this morning's sunrise. Glorious! It seems like a dream to holiday here.

Following a long day out at a Gold Coast theme park I snapped this week's progress in my Fresh Fields quilt as daylight disappeared in the west. A little stitching fills those in between holiday moments in a most delightful way.
You can find a closer photo of these "Beach Flowers?" on flickr here.

What a wonderful, glorious sunrise. There is something jubilant about it, the gift of a new day.

Karen,
Your picture makes me dream of beach days. I'm home today with an "Ice Day", and would love to be walking the beach instead. :) Ah... that, too, will come, though. The colors for your quilt are beautiful!

In addition to the last comment just posted (but in a previous post) - your first photo here is incredible, I want to ring somebody in the photo magazine world right away to tell them to view this image. And I mean every single word of that.
