  1. Jaki cudny konik morski! Aż zamarzyła mi się podusia z takim cudem!!!
    Wakacje nad morzem, hm... Jako dziecko co roku rodzice wysyłali mnie na kolonie nad nasze polskie morze. Nawet ospę przechodziłam nad morzem:( Miałam w końcu dość takich wakacji i więcej nie miałam zamiaru oglądać morza. Jednak jako osoba dorosła zatęskniłam i w podróż poślubną pojechaliśmy z mężem nad morze... Było pięknie! Uwielbiam szum fal rozbijających się o brzeg!

  3. Yes! Every other holiday we spend at the place where my dad grew up on the coast ;) Love this little fellow!

  4. Przepiękny konik morski:) Ten ogonek jest bardzo starannie dopracowany. My mieszkamy nad morzem, więc właściwie każde wakacje spędzamy tutaj. Ciężko byłoby mi się stąd przeprowadzić:)

  5. Przecudny wzór, Joasiu. Z ogromną przyjemnością ustawiam się w kolejce!!!
    Nad morzem byłam kilka razy. Głównie nad naszym polskim Bałtykiem,ale miałam również przyjemność pomoczyć nogi w Morzu Martwym:)
    Najczęściej jestem jednak u siebie,a że wody w zasięgu wzroku mam sporo, to nad inną wcale mi się nie śpieszy:)

  6. Konik jest cudowny, ma takie zalotne spojrzenie... śliczne kolorki...
    Ja mieszkam w górach , więc za morzem tęsknię, dawno nie byłam... a najlepsze wakacje, bo aż trzykrotnie spędziłam w Ustce - pięknie jest tam zarówno latem podczas upałów - świetna duża plaża, czysta woda oraz późną jesienią i zimą podczas sztormów.

  7. Can I just say wow wow wow! You have outdone yourself with this pattern- its stunning!
    As for hoildays by the sea- yes lots! I have lots of happy childhood memories of playing in rock pools with my brother and sister.

  8. It's super cute! Holidays by the sea are the best since we don't have any over here. Sea and the sun = true holidays. Thx.

    We always go to a tiny island off the coast of Ireland for our holidays!!

  11. So cute! I'm totally loving paper piecing these days! I grew up by the ocean and love going back to visit!

  12. I have - I went to St Ives at the bottom of England and spent 2 nights - amazing place with Barbara Hepworth 's studio :) amycav at hotmail dot com

  13. yup!! i was born in Nova Scotia, and lived my first 5 years beside the ocean, and i've taken my kids back for a special trip too. gooberific@ yahoo.com

  14. We used to have a small sailboat with cabin. We would go down to the marina and spend the weekend on her as often as possible. Now we spend time at the beach when we get the chance :-)

  15. One of my favorite places to vacation is in Pacific Grove California on the Pacific Ocean. There is a wonderful boardwalk & tide pools and awesome sunsets. I think I need to go again!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I live by the sea and I'm not too keen on crowds or sun, so we don't tend to go on holiday to the seaside! Great pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hi, no I've never even seen the sea. I really want to but I've lived in the middle of Canada my whole life and having made a flight (shudder) or drive (5-7 days) to either end of the country.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I used to live a short drive away from the ocean so we spent tons of time there growing up :) I definitely miss that! Love this block, thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  19. It has been too many years (2 or 3) since I've been near the ocean. This is the summer we'll go back. I can't wait! I absolutely love your little sea horse!

  20. 100 years ago when I was in college I lived in an apartment in Isla Vista overlooking the ocean. It was like having a vacation every day - except for the studying.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh my goodness, I love your seahorse so much! I have been fortunate enough to spend some holiday time on the west coast of British Columbia, and it is spectacular. Thanks for the chance to win this amazing pattern.

  22. I live close to the ocean so lucky to see it whenever I want, thanks for the chance to win!

  23. Would love a beach house someday, until then we make do with at least a long weekend in a rental.
    Love rock pools and caves

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love vacations at the ocean or lake, especially now that I have kids. Everyone has something to do, swimming, napping, digging in the dirt, chasing birds, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I guess everyday is a vacation by the sea now that we live on Prince of Wales Island in Southeast Alaska. Every morning I look out the window at the bay and watch the tide come in and out, herons on the beach looking for goodies, and the occasional whale going by. How much more perfect could it be...quilting by the sea would only make it better!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Eeeeeee, he is so cute!! We go to the ocean every summer with the family, though it is too cold to go in the water. I do like to go to tropical places like Mexico or Costa Rica on my other vacations to make up for that.

    ReplyDelete
  27. No holidays spent by the sea but we love to visit Monterey, CA often. This seahorse would look awesome in an "ocean" quilt I am making for my husband. I love the pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am in LOVE with this little guy. He's awesome.
    Last year we spent the last week of Summer at a beach house. It was fantastic and can't wait to do it again. No agenda. Just us and the dog. Heaven, pure heaven.

    ReplyDelete
  29. This little guy is just adorable and I can think of so many way to display him!!! And yes, we spend most holidays at the sea. I'm a Gemini and it simply calls to me.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Awww, this is so cute! Never spent holidays by the sea. But I like to go to the beach every one in a while :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've been scuba diving many times, both in the Caribbean and in the Atlantic Ocean, but I've never seen a seahorse as cute as this one!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've spent a summer driving and camping around the Canadian maritime provinces, and a short vacation by the sea in Bournemouth England, which was beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh yes! Love the Washington and Oregon coast. In fact, we will be heading there in August for several days. Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  34. So cute! I just love that little sea horse!!

  35. Not to make anyone jealous, but I live at the sea. Other than the occasional hurricane, it is wonderful.

  36. Śliczny wzór konika morskiego!
    Mój wyjazd nad polskie morze był trochę nietypowy... Zamiast beztrosko wylegiwać się na plaży postanowiłam wraz ze swoim chłopakiem, że rowerami wyruszymy wzdłuż wybrzeża. Po wytrwałym tygodniu pedałowania (pieszej wędrówce po plaży w okolicach Parku w Łebie :) ) w końcu dotarliśmy do celu. Przy okazji wiemy już jakie miejscowości nas zauroczyły i warto je jeszcze odwiedzić :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Nope. We sometimes go to the beach in the summer for a day, but I have never vacationed there longer.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Most definitely! We used to vacation at least a week on the Gulf of Mexico (Florida and Alabama) nearly every year growing up. When we lived in Deep South Alabama, we'd go to the beach several weekends out of the year. It was wonderful.

  39. I spent a week with family and friends off the coast of North Carolina once. The best memory was finding a dead (but not stinky) horseshoe crab shell. So prehistoric!

  40. Piekny ten konik morski!
    Moje najpiękniejsze wakacje miały miejsce w 1976 r . Byłam wtedy moich chorwackich przyjaciół i razem pływaliśmy jachtem ( w dużej mierze własnej produkcji naszego znajomego)po Adriatyku,od Zadaru do Dubrownika i wyspy Mlijet, po drodze odwiedzając cudowne wyspy Kornati,przypominające muszelki popularnych małży przylepionych do skał- priljipek.. Ech....

  41. When I was a kid we spent vacations in Hawaii... I know I am spoiled. I still remember body surfing with my Dad and loving it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't do it very often, but I have taken my children to the ocean about 5 years ago. We went to and spent time just playing in the ocean. There were dolphins swimming just a few yards out. Take was really cool. I just love the ocean!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I've often holidayed by the sea as my husbands father has at little house on the Mornington Peninsula, about one and a half hours drive from where we live. I always enjoy it very much. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This is so gorgeous!! i would love this to go with my Mo Bedell Full Moon Lagoon fabrics. I have holidayed by the sea a lot, in Australia, New Zealand and Canada. I'm longing for the sea!

  46. Oh, Joanna, this is so cute! I haven't been to the sea in many years ... I lived in Florida for a summer right after I got out of college and it was miserable hot and outrageously expensive for a young girl. So my holidays are generally spent closer to home these days ...

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wzór jest piękny. Dzięki za możliwość wygrania wzoru.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would love to get this pattern. A sweet reminder of many times spent at many different seas...

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hi! That is a beautiful seahorse! Thank you for a lovely give away! I have had several great seaside holidays and after a while stayed - now I have lived 20 years near to the beaches - dream holidays for many! Wishes from Greece!

  50. Love that pattern! I have spent a Christmas holiday at Myrtle Beach, S.C. a few years ago. It was really loads of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yeahhh so cool, I won this cutie!!!! I will sew it after the FQ-Retreat!!!

  52. Spending the holidays at the beach is a special gift. Ours was a Panama Canal cruise, and we saw natural beauties along the way from Puerto Rico to Aruba, Panama, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Mexico. I love your seahorse and would like to do a wall hanging in the motif. Thanks!
