Sand

I am working on the sand on Baker Beach. This is the last swath of sand that is a whole lot of confetti stitches. I am sure this will take some time, but as you can see from the pictures below I have already made some progress. This is where I was at the end of last week.
 This is where I am now.
I will put some more stitches in this afternoon.

I have been working on my Prairie Schooler Santa a little bit too. I sat on the front porch when my son was visiting and stitched while he edited his thesis.
I will be saving this right now for a long plane ride that I have coming up. It is the only one of my current projects that is small and easily portable. I will give you more info on my trip at a later time.

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. On Monday I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Cathie! I see your progress...boy this has really been a labor of love But it will be so worth it when you are done. I like your new project as well...I'm in the process of making 10 PS Santas for a dough bowl setting for Christmas. I have 2 down and 8 to go. Do you stitch on the airplane? I didn't think they would let you bring a needle or scissors aboard. I would be thrilled to hear they do now. It sure helps make a long trip go by a lot quicker. RJ @ stitching friends forever

Cathie, I love the PS Santa's, I want to make them someday too, great progress on both. How nice that you and your son were working on projects on the porch at the same time! Looking forward to hearing about your long trip! Mary

I'm glad I'm not the only one working on a winter themed cross stitch project! Your son must be almost done his thesis and school if he is at the editing stage. All those confetti stitches take a long time but add great texture. Have a relaxing time sewing this afternoon.

Coming along very well, this is going to be an amazing cross stitch when it is done.

That confetti stitching always takes so long. It is a beautiful piece.

Oooh....a trip coming up? How fun!

I have to say... I look forward to seeing the progress on this one each week. It truly is a labor of love. Which reminds me... I need to find my cross stitch for a trip next month! I think it actually lives in my carry on.

Cathie, This is coming along so nicely. I've been following you long enough to have seen a few updates on your piece now, and I love each one. All of that confetti is making for a beautiful depth to the picture. Thank you for sharing all your pictures. --Andrea

You've made beautiful progress! Confetti is so time consuming, but it adds great detail. :)

I hope you enjoy your upcoming trip.

Nice progress, Cathie. Confetti stitches aren't a lot of fun, but every little bit counts :) Carry on!

Yep... there's definitely progress on the sand from one photo to the next.

It's always good to have a small hand project to work on during long trips.

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for the link back. Aloha hugs!
