Well I've packed up loads of embroidery supplies and am ready to head off. I've drawn the vine border on the Frida piece, which will be easy to work on in the car and not take so much concentration that I would stop being a good traveling companion. The vines will overlap each other, some with thorns, some with flowers, some in shiny satin thread, etc... all different shades of green and brown.

My poor cat is very distressed. She knows that when I start packing my leave in imminent and sadly I can't e
xplain to her that she gets to come with me. I do keep trying though. I've always been somewhat convinced that cats do understand you (they have that look) so now I'm somewhat convinced that she just likes to mess with me.

In any case. I might post update pictures of Frida and other projects next week, and I might not. I might be too busy drinking cocktails and munching on hushpuppies. In the meantime here are some pictures I took on our trip last year (same beach, it's a time share). That sea gull practically stalked me (no food or drink or anything, it just kept following me around. Creepariffic for those like me who dislike most birds.


  1. Lovely pictures! I'm with you on the bird creepyness....*ew* But we're considering getting a few chickens, so I might have to finally overcome my terrible bird aversion.... :)

  2. Thanks, Traci!

    I don't have a problem with chickens, I think partially because they give you fabulous eggs, make amusing noises, and taste delicious. They're a useful bird at least and you can always claim you're in charge of feeding or cooking of eggs and someone else has to collect said eggs. :)
