Block Island North Lighthouse

Look what came in the mail today!


When I saw this in Needlepoint Now I knew I had to stitch it.  My family goes on vacation to Block Island every summer. My husband has been going there since he was born.  It’s a really special place for us.  Years ago, when I was in high school, my husband (boyfriend at the time of course) drove out on the beach by the lighthouse one night.  Enough said.

 I don’t think you’re allowed to drive cars on the beach there any more.  Gone are the days of yesteryear!

I’ll be putting this on bars as soon as I finish the Easter Parade by Liz and a few other Easter goodies.  I’ll probably take this on vacation with me in a few weeks.  I promised Cindy at Wellesley Needlepoint, the distributor for J & J canvases,  that I would write a stitch guide for this piece.  Maybe I’ll even take a little trip up to her shop to teach this piece.  Who knows?


Ideas are brewing.  Now it’s time to do a little research and look at some photographs of this lighthouse.  I’ve got a cool idea for the flag.  Never know if it’s gonna work till I try!
