A beach Walk and Some Cross stitch

First, I want to thank all of you for the nice comments about my Spring flowers and the sampler.  I'm always happy when others can enjoy the garden. It has been much warmer than usual so I'll probably have more things blooming soon.  Thanks to this weather, the SBA and I went for a 2 hour beach walk at our favorite beach.  It was wonderful, not even windy which is unusual for this spot.  We took lots of pictures and I hope you will enjoy them.  I have been busy with the cross stitch sampler, "This is the Day".  I'm enjoying the stitching very much. With all the bad stuff going on last week, I think I watched more news than usual and got quite a bit of stitching done! I hope it has been a great week for you!

 This is Mount Baker, one of our huge volcanic mountains in the Cascade Range.  It is like Mount Rainier in that it stands out much higher  than the mountains around it. It is usually not this clear.  This is about 60 or 70 miles away.

 I love all this driftwood.  I have lugged several pieces home!

 This piece was beautiful but a bit too heavy!!!!

 I saw this hole in a large piece of driftwood and thought it was the perfect frame for a picture.

 Progress on "This is the Day."

 I will finish the leaves tonight.  I changed the windows to a light color.  The dark brown was suggested.  I decided that this is a happy cheerful piece.  The house looked foreboding to me with dark windows.






I moon was so pretty last night.  The SBA and I just finished a class on digital photography so we were experimenting with settings.
Have a happy Friday and a great week end.  Thanks for joining me!
