I can't believe today is the last day of July. Where did that month go? Oh wait, it was way too hot to do anything outside, so it was mostly spent inside. That means that I made a lot of crafting progress. I almost finished another 10 blocks for the Log Cabin Star quilt. This time the second to last log assembled fairly easily...except for a couple of pieces that were cut a shade too small. I started adding the last log on Friday.
All that is left are the y-seams that I may work on today.
The stitching on the Woodland Animals birth announcement is going at a quick pace. As you can see, the tree is almost done.
Next, I get to start stitching some of the animals. I think I will complete the backstitching as I go this time as it is all the same color for the entire piece and then I will know that an area is done.
Hubby and I have been going down to Jones Beach at night a couple of times during the week. We walk the boardwalk and sometimes walk down to the water. It is very peaceful.
We went to Wantagh Park this past week also. It was a sunny, hot day and there were surprisingly few people. We watched a few boats leave the marina and looked out over Flat Creek towards Jones Beach.
You can see the Jones Beach water tower and the outdoor theater in the distance.
This is the sunset driving home from the beach last night.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are stitching. I have plenty to keep me busy.
Thanks for stopping by!
