It is really hot outside so I am going to the beach.....Baker Beach that is. I'm no dummy. I am not going to venture to the beach in 90 degree weather when I can sit in my air-conditioned house and work on Baker Beach. I really don't like the beach anyway which is quite odd for a Long Islander, but all the sand getting in your shorts/bathing suit and on your feet. Needing to bring baby powder to get it off before getting in the car. Schlepping the cooler, blanket, chair and umbrella from the car to the beach. Finding a relatively quiet place to claim your spot. The constant application of sun-screen so that you don't burn and then getting gritty when you put it on because there was sand on your hands. Oh and don't get me started about trying to eat at the beach and not have sand in you food. Ugh. I like sitting by a lake much better.
Nope, I am going to enjoy my cross-stitched beach thank you very much.
As you can see I am oh so close to finishing page 6 out of 10. There are less than 500 stitches in that little corner. Then I can move on to the left side of this large picture and work on the other 4 pages. I wonder if I can finish those stitches today.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. You can guess what I will be working on. On Monday I will join the Stitchery Link Party over at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching.
Thanks for stopping by!
