Getting closer to a finish...



on Bluebird's Message. Not much more but the bottom branch, leaves, and eyelets underneath the heart and the border. I have enjoyed stitching this one very much, the colors are just so lovely. It also helps when borders and things meet like they are supposed to-LOL Have you seen the new Anniversaries of the Heart Farm House? I love that and it definitely goes on the must stitch list. I have worked some on The Mercantile, still not enough to show a picture yet, maybe next week.

The kids are out of school and trying to eat me out of house and home. But it's all good as we don't have to get up early for anything. We spent the first day out on Pensacola Beach with friends. Below is a picture of the beach with some storm clouds rolling in. If you would like to see more Pensacola Beach pictures check this blog out it's called Barrier Island Girl . Who knows how long it will look this way if they don't get that oil spill contained.

Beautiful Sharon! And that beach is lovely. It is a true tragedy what is happening in the gulf.

Bluebird's message is looking gorgeous!

We have three weeks more to go before school's out. Can't wait for the day when we don't have to get up so early...
Enjoy the summer vacation.

Your progress on Bluebird is lovely!

Lovely piece! LOL I know about being eaten out of house and home :)

Thanks for the link to the Barrier blog too. I am heartbroken over the oil spill.

Great progess on Bluebird.
Oh, it just breaks my heart thinking of the damage this oil spill is causing. Those areas will never be the same.

Bluebird's Message looks beautiful! I love the colors, and I think Blackbird Designs are always enjoyable to stitch. I'm working on Snow Garden.

Oh I would give anything to be on that beach! It is absolutely beautiful.

So beautiful...
I also love the BBD anniversaries of the heart series.
Such a beautiful beach...
Thanks for sharing,
Lili

I love you BBD WIP. And I'm really tempted by the Farm House. And I love the beach pic. Beaches are my favorite places in the world. So why do I live in the desert?

I like the stitching you are working on and hope you'll be able to post LHN; can't wait to see some of it. Enjoy the beach water while you can.

Ah, Sharon, your bluebird project is looking so beautiful!!

I had to laugh about your kids eating you out of house and home; my kids' camp fees and clothes are doing that to me! :D

I hope the storm blowing towards the beach is not a portent of the oil blighting those white sands!

Bluebird looks great, Sharon!

I hear you on being eaten out of house and home! Between that and money for activities--yikes.

Sharon,

Glad that your summer is off to a good start. The beach picture is really beautiful.

Bluebird ia looking really nice. I'm glad the border is going smoothly for you.

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my daughters.

Bluebird's Message is looking gorgeous:)

That beach looks lovely. The oil spill is terrible and I really wish they could find a solution soon. Hard to believe in this day and age that they couldn't have sorted it straight away.
