Summer Solstice Finish On Finish Friday

My latest finish stitched up very, VERY quickly. I enjoyed picking out different threads for this project as I did not wish to purchase any additional supplies. There is always that one color that you are lacking, no matter the size of your stash. And let's be honest, who wants to order one single skein of floss, only to wait 3 or 4 days for it to come in? Or worse yet, having to fight the crowds in the big box stores. No thanks! 

I had a lot of fun with this piece. It reminded me so much of summers spent at the seaside. Being landlocked the last 10 years has made me appreicate those summers all the more!
