Lighthouse Finish


I finished this earlier today. Now I've started the second lighthouse and I'll give the two to Sherry, She'll make them into a kleenix box or something. I gave her the instructions from the book. It's summer time I love doing beach scenes.

Today my sister was going to come into town and camp at a State Park a few miles from here but she isn't feeling well so hopefully she'll feel better tomorrow and come. Disappointing but no one is more disappointed then her 4 year old grand daughter Addie, who was waiting for Grandma since early this morning. They are at the camp ground too. Kay will be there through next Thursday, I'm not sure how long Heather, and Brian and the kids will be there. They have been there since Sunday when Kay and Ken came in to set the camper up.

It's a good week for Kay to be camping as it will be 90's again. Really warm for us. I love Lake Michigan and look forward to being out there during the day time. I can't after dark because all the campfire smoke gets to me. I especially loved going down and watching the lighthouse when going down to Lake Michigan. I see that lake and I am so relaxed. As kids we use to love riding the waves and also diving in to them.

I got a gift card for $50 and I had so much fun spending it at 123 stitch the other day. I got 8 new patterns and 17 skeins of floss. Best is the gift card covered it all and it doesn't go against me in the 50 challenge since it is a gift. This was piece 27 towards the 50 challenge.

Well....until next time Happy Stitching!
