Birthday Stitching

Today I am celebrating a birthday. Actually I have been celebrating since last week, but hey so what LOL My sweet DH took me to my favorite place, South Carolina. Where we spent 4 glorious days at the beach. Now many people might ask, why would you travel 3,000 miles from California to South Carolina when you have beaches there??

Truth is, the beaches here in Northern California, be it beautiful are VERY cold and the waves are rough. The beached back east are warmer and calmer. I spent three lovely days looking at this beautiful sight day and night. Listening to the sound of the waves while going to sleep is a sound unlike none other. So peaceful and calming. I feel relaxed and ready to go into 2012 with a bright outlook :)

I also started a new project while I was there. I actually did not get to much stitching done because I was to busy walking the beach and searching for sharks teeth, it seems to be a hobby for some. I came across some very tiny teeth but my biggest one came the day before I left the tooth fossil had the gum still intact so it was quit cool :) The teeth are actually fossilized teeth that have fallen out millions of years ago becoming submerged in sand and then resurfacing when they dredged the area some years ago, now they wash up on shore for us to find :)

This is Bird in Hand by Blackbird Designs I am loving it so far :) Floss I am using Blue Lagoon (Belle Soie Silk Floss)
