Bargain Beach Blanket

Trip to Goodwill last week to purchase 5 sheets: $15
Two evenings of cutting and sewing: 8 hours total
Beach blanket to last us for years of good times: PRICELESS!
.
So, it turns out that sheets on the beach are great! The sand shakes off easily and this will wash up very well. I'm excited! I was inspired by the beach blanket posted by Soulemama. Hers is cute, but I must say I LOVE the colors on mine -- they are just so BEACHY. :o)
.
Doug and I had a great time in San Diego this past weekend. It was a much needed get-away for us. My sweet hubby has had more pictures taken of him in the past 6 years since we've been together than he probably has had in his entire life leading up to Me & Carrie. Lucky for me, he's a good sport and we got a lot of CUTE pix. I have a mini-book design swimming around in my head, so stay tuned for pictures of that in a week or so...
~sigh~ I love this man...
