Red, white and blueblueblue!

Happy 4th of July to all my American readers!!

I've spent the first part of my 3-day weekend starting a new exchange piece. I know, I'm crazy...but I signed up for the "By the Sea" exchange over at HOE. As I'm not a fan of lighthouses, I started pawing through my stash for something suitably beachy. I'm really pleased with what I've put together so far, but sadly, I can't share!! I will, however, tease you with this (mildly blurry) picture --I love the color blue. *sigh* Something tells me I might not want to part with this one! I initially wanted to use JBW Designs' "Journey to the Sea" - one of the Sweet Nothings line that I love - but it is mysteriously unavailable at every ONS I frequent. I couldn't even find it on eBay, which is really odd. Ah well. Stayed tuned until August...that is the mailing date....then you can see my pretties!!!!

Saw the exchange and am seriously wanting to sign up... just need to make sure I am capable of taking part!
I already have an idea of what I'd stitch for it too :D

Love those bright sparkly beads with the shell!

LOL and isn't that always the case? When you want something, its NO WHERE to be found!
