Alzheimer Art Quilts Initiative quilt missing

We went with friends to a baseball game this afternoon. Both men played baseball a long, long time ago. My husband played even in the Dutch team.
It was nice weather and a tie game. The Dutch champion won with 2-1 in the last inning.
One  of the biggest stadiums of The Netherlands (cap. 2750) !
In The Netherlands soccer is much, much bigger than baseball. Today the stadium was almost empty! I think about 200 spectators. But we had fun!

I made two mini quilts for the Alzheimer Art Guilt Initiative and I sent them by post. One of the quilts is somewhere between The Netherlands and the United States.

It is no problem.  I promished to send another one. I love quilting shells, so I decided to combine some practice with my promish.
I did not quilt this time shells on purple cotton but I tried cotton with the color of sand at out North Sea beaches. I used three multi colors polyester thread with the colors of shells. The binding is cotton with the same color as one of the shades of the multicolors.

'Shells on a sandy beach'  (8 x 12 inch)
I made this Alzheimer Quilt it in memory of my grandma. As long as I know we were looking  for shells on the beach together, I do not mind she had forgotten!
Tomorrow it is on the way to the United States.
