Cannon Beach Finish :D

I’ve been contemplating a lot since Monday after what happened at Virginia Tech. It is a nightmare really. I am a really sensitive person, and things like that are really overwhelming to me. I have been praying for those families and students for comfort and peace. I couldn’t even imagine. I know that if I can just keep on being a happy, well rounded person, others around me will benefit from that. So… that is what I am going to do! All in all make the world a better place to live in right? So chin up! We’ll get through it.

In other news, I finished my Cannon Beach cross stitch! I put the final stitches in yesterday afternoon. I am really happy with it. Now I need to find a frame for it. :)

Kind Stitchworks: Cannon Beach & Haystack Rock
Stitched using recommended DMC floss
32 count evenweave, Babbling Brook

Thank you so much for your input on the log cabin layout! I had the overwhelming sense that all of you liked the newer layout with the diamond starting in the center, so that is what I’ll finish it like :D Woo! Thanks for taking the time to comment and give me advice, you are so sweet :)

Here are some pics from my garden, my peonies are blooming, and lilacs too :D I love it. My daughter Jessie really liked the peonies, they are so big! And the bees were all over them, she had fun watching them work. She took a picture of me too, so you can get a good view of my new hair-do :D

Have a great day everyone!!!

Congrats on the finish! Peony?? We don't even have daffodils yet... peonies will be in June... July maybe this year.... I too am so saddened by the VA Tech shootings.

Congrats on the finish. We are fully in tulips here and they look so good. We went on a bikeroute last sunday and all the way you could look you saw flowers.

Cannon Beach looks great and you and your daughter are beautiful! :)

The flowers over here are going by too fast because of the too-early spring ... on the news the other night, they showed them cutting the blooms and refrigerating them to try to make them last long enough for some event they were needed for!

Your finish is lovely, but those pictures of you and your DD are just the tops!!!

The piccys of you and your dd are just precious, Sweetie!!! :-)
