Rainy Day Stitching

I am hoping to get a whole bunch of stitching completed today as it is supposed to be pouring rain all day. I have made some good progress recently now that my schedule is winding down. 
Maybe I will be able to finish all of the cross-stitch on the pup. It is almost there.
That would leave just the back stitch which will hopefully be stitched quickly. 

I am almost finished with the fifth page of Baker Beach. 

The large swath of black that I am currently stitching finishes the fifth page and starts the sixth page. Then there are only four more full pages to stitch.

I have also started stitching my Gratitude Key.
I have been going back and forth in choosing the floss colors, but I am happy with the DMC 844 that I chose for the key itself.

I am looking forward to a visit from my son this week. He comes in late tonight and will be here until Thursday. We haven't seen him since Christmas. Then on Thursday, my daughter is coming for a weekend visit. I can't wait to see them. 

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching today. Tomorrow I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape and Cath for Design Board Monday over at Bits 'n Bobs. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am waiting for our predicted rain...for two days now it's been 80 percent chance but it's never showed up. Same forecast for today. Baker's Beach is really coming along; I remember when you started it! :)

Enjoy your son and daughter visits this week, and some stitching today.

Rainy here too which makes for a great excuse to stay inside and stitch! I have been watching Baker Beach for months now and I admire your fortitude to keep at it!
