It's just gorgeous!

I have the series myself and have always wanted to stitch it, but honestly, I'll probably never get around to it. Thank you for letting me "virtual stitch" it with you through your progress pics! :)

That's beautiful. Really does make me want to sit and play with them--- which is something because I hate sand. lol

BTW, I wrote a big comment to your last post, and REALLY felt for you....but when I went back to read some of the other supporting comments just now, mine isn't there :( I must not have posted it right.

Just wanted you to know that I was here and giving virtual hugs...
