Watching the sun rise

Well I was all set to post yesterday till I realized that the SD card from the camera was missing! DH had left it in his laptop after looking at some pics.....needless to say, I called him a few choice names! :) 


Last week, hubby and I decided to have a few days away so we headed off to the New England coast. The weather was wonderful, and although it was really hot the beach breeze kept it comfortable.  

My birthday was spent watching the sun rise over the Atlantic...




Another item crossed off the bucket list!

I did enjoy the New England sense of humour. The signs were honest funny.....


...and another one that made me giggle....



So no stitching was done while we were away, but I did manage to finish off the 'ugly' Christmas jumper when I got home...yayyy!


...a close up of the jumper...


 ....and the little coat hangers for (eventually!) finishing it off ...


The hangers aren't exactly what I thought I had ordered......next time I will take more time to read the description of an item! These will work though....I'll make them work ;)

So quite a few items to be finished ....maybe I'll spend the weekend  just 'finishing' all the recent stitching. Wish me luck!


Until next time...happy stitching!
