Seaside Sweethearts . . .

Before Tris, my son, and I came from D. C. to
Dallas we took his friend home to East Hampton, N. Y.

We went to the beach the next day, although it was so foggy!
The sea was very rough as you can tell,
and you could not see the sun or the horizon.
We decided we would go home until the sun came out so
we put all the chairs and boogie board in the car
and Lo and Behold ~

Here comes the Sun!!!

So . . . we went back and set everything up again. The sun
stayed out the rest of the day.

Here is my son making footprints for me on that foggy day!!!

I am back from D. C. and my son and I got home safely.
We had a wonderful time and I enjoyed the trip very much.
I got to see a lot of this country, from the interstate, that is.
There were no stops at cross stitch shops,
but then it would be hard to stop
at something you can't see from the interstate.
Thanks for all your prayers, they helped ~
we encountered a lot of rain.

I have stitched on my favorite project again.
I have the sea done on his side,
I have put most of the sand in
that they are walking on
and now I have only the
bottom left side to finish.

Next I have the sky and gulls and the sea grass
and I will be done, finally!!!

The man's pants had a dark spot, that was shading
so I took the piece to show my daughter
who was home from South Africa.
She said I needed to change the shadow
cause it looked like he had crapped his pants.

Can you tell she still has a child in diapers?

So I did just that.
I think it looks better and that spot did bother me, too
cause it was so dark.

What do you think?

I am so anxious to get it done
and framed I will work on it again ~
As always, thanks so much for looking, your comments
are so encouraging!

So glad you had a good holiday and the weather was good to you.
Your UFO is coming along really well. Perhaps a good job that there weren't cross stitch shops- you may have missed the sunshine.
Keep it up and I'll be watching for your next post. Happy stitching.
