August Happenings

The end of August saw us traveling to Minnesota to move our son to college. We took a few days for vacation and since it was our 24th anniversary my husband and I took some time to ourselves to visit some of the lighthouses around Lake Superior and to take in a Twins game. We had a great time and saw lots of new places. Of course I took my stitching and made some progress on CHS Alphabets. I am trying to get that particular piece finished this year so I tend to go to it more often than anything else right now.  This picture shows where I was when I started the trip. More to follow.
Hope this time brings some stitching time for you. Marjo


  1. Gorgeous scenery pics!!! Love your alphabet, the fill in color is so pretty.

  2. OMG, I love that lighthouse sitting there on the cliff! Happy anniversary, happy moving your son to college, etc. Love your alphabets!

  3. Marjo, your photographs are beautiful! The lighthouse on the cliff looks like a postcard. It's just beautiful!

  4. That's a long trip!! Glad you got to see a few things along the way. Any crossstitch shops? I love the blue for the letters on your CHS Alphabet. That's one of the many projects I have in progress and I wasn't sure what I was going to do for the "fill" on the letters. What threads are you using?
