Happy Dance!


Pigeon Point Lighthouse is Finished! I am so happy. That piece took a lot longer than I contemplated. Plus I made little mistakes I didn't discover until I had too much done on it but it's mostly with the colors so it can still go on the Quilt.
It will go to a Lighthouse Quilt we are doing at Cross Stitching for Charity. I love these Lighthouses as they are so realistic I'm sure I'll do more. Growing up on Lake Michigan I loved the Lighthouses!

Thank you for your comments to my last post. My mom is doing much better now. It was a medication that was created the problem, so they reduced it.

We are getting lots of rain compared to what we've been having. Today is nice but is suppose to rain again Thurs. and Fri. I haven't heard any complaints we needed it so bad. We were starting to worry about loosing Lake Michigan! LOL! Well not quite that bad but it needed the rain too.

I have World Grand Champion all kitted up to start tomorrow. It's a Horse and Rider in the Winner's Circle. Until next time Happy Stitching!

we used to live in Half Moon Bay, quite close to Pigeon Point. It sits on a dramatic cliff. Your stitching is very close to the real lighthouse. Congratulations.
