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!
