By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea
You and me, you and me, oh how happy we’ll be!
I am thrilled an honored to be leading my first challenge this month! It is no coincidence that I asked to host the Sea, Seashore & Shells challenge. For me there is nothing more peaceful and rejuvenating than being at the seashore. The sound of the waves, the smell of the salt water, the call of the seagulls, the warmth of the sand, it is simply my most favorite place in the world!
So what does the seashore evoke for you? The choices for squares are limitless!
Boats, lighthouses, sunrise and sunset over the water, beach balls and sand toys, kites, colored fish, sharks, whales, birds and more.
Please don't feel that you have to be an expert knitter or crocheter to show your squares here. Winter is on it's way to South Africa and the children need as many squares as we can send! Every challenge is just a fun way to keep our creative juices flowing. Best of all, all colors are found at the seashore, so any color Plane Jane will be perfect for this challenge!
Whatever sparks your creativity, please post photos of your squares here and on the photo page.

Many thanks Mary and Gitta!!
Just a reminder: Please securely butterfly a 20”/50 cm tail to each square, to help the sewers in South Africa.
I would love to know if you recognize the song I quoted. My mother used to sing it. Apparently it was written in 1914 and made into a Broadway play in 1954. This verse is the only one I know!
