Mariner's Compass and Lighthouse complete











Long weekends are certainly great for stitching. I finished my lighthouse including all the backstitching. I did the mariner's compass I wanted to include. I rebasted some of my blocks as the thread was pulling loose. I found the verse in an online thesaurus and thought it suited the piece. So, here are the photos of the lighthouse, the compass, the saying, the space for names and the overall piece. I will work on the border a bit since I have about 10 days before I have to put it in the mail. The border is a rope design. I really need to learn more about posting photos. They are all over the place. Oh, well, maybe next time.

You should be able to click and drag your photos where you want them within your post once you've loaded them. Your RR is so pretty - I just love your theme!
