Some Cruising, stitching & TUSAL.....

Some cruising.....after 7 days of rest and relaxation....I am pooped!! I didn't realize that no working, cooking and cleaning could be so exhausting. We did have a great time and I just wanted to share a few pictures.

Our home....Freedom of the Seas as we sun on CocoCay

The beautiful waters of St. Marten.

Hubby enjoying Orient Beach.

The Good....beautiful waters, fruity drinks, daily trivia (Team Thomas ruled!) .....

The, sunburn, Visa bill ....

The Funny.....nude beach (no...if you've seen one you have NOT seen them all!)

Some Stitching....yes, lucky for me, I packed some stitching. After suffering a severe sunburn, I was able to spend a whole day stitching and actually have a finish to show for it. This has been in my "To Do" pile for awhile...

Bent Creek "Here Comes the Sun"
Cross Stitch & Needlework-- June 1998

The there is a companion piece, Full Moon Rising, and I hope to get that stitched in a few weeks.

Lastly...Totally Useless SAL

With the full moon, it is time to show my progress on the SAL...

Well...we are half way through and my jar is getting pretty full! Want to join in? Head on over to TUSAL and join the fun.

Thanks for looking! Happy stitches....


  1. Karen,
    Glad you had fun on your cruise. It's nice to get away but also great to get home. Pics are pretty. I like your Bent Creek sounds like a perfect stitch for your cruise. lol
    It is actually just about as close to go to Augusta as it is to go to Harbison. I will check out Amy's shop. I thought I was the only one that got that feeling from the Needler.

  2. Looks like you had a great time. Beautiful pictures and nice finish!

  3. Just stopping by to see your TUSAL jar...I think you may need to upgrade before the year is over. You are nearly full!

    Looks like you had a great time on your cruise.

  4. Great pics of your cruise! Glad you had a good time. Thanks for visiting my TUSAL jar and blog.

  5. welcome home! looks and sounds like a wonderful time! I'm still lol'ing about your nude beaches remark *grin*

    love your finish too!

  6. Beautiful pics!! You lucky girl!
    I would love to be on that beach right now:)
    Congrats on your adorable sorry to hear about the sunburn!
    Your jar is almost full! (I really, really love that chicken pincushion!!)
