Okay while the Red Sox were busy last night playing catch up and making me think they could maybe make the Rays lose...I was busy picking out new/old projects to take to the beach.
What could be more fun than picking out vaca-stitching?
Let's see what I came up with:
Point Pinos Lighthouse kit that I picked up at Cabrillo National Monument gift shop two years ago. Kit comes with a light blue Aida. I've been through what is left of my fabric stash and have a few choices in blue. None of them looked terrific to me. But I will bring them to stitch group today and see what others think.
A great blue heron design that I barely started earlier this year. I'd like to make a tiny bit of progress on this one - something worthy of a photo.
Michelle Ink's "Captain's Rellek." I think I got the spelling correct. Pirate ships and mermaids and treasure oh my.
A Sudberry House shaker pincushion that has a sailing ship in a bay. Can't remember the details on this one. But it's not large. But the pattern is printed on some paper designed to prevent copying and I find it annoying to look at. Oh well.
These are the four projects I've decided to bring with me. I left behind some other mighty candidates like the Cricket Collection's Skeleton Crew. Which is highlighted in this SAL blog. And a nautical themed series of smalls. And the Victoria's Sampler Mystic Needlework.
