Rain, showers, scattered showers, more rain...

It is pretty wet on the West wet coast, perfect time for relaxing, stitching, reading or updating the blog. Nothing very exciting has happened in my life lately other than sailing. Last Sunday the sky was cleared for a while (it actually turned blue!) so we jumped on the boat and spread sails. We had a lot of fun with sea lions. It looked like they were playing with us. They were sticking their heads above the water, making some kind of noises and as soon as I try to catch them on the camera they made a perfect flip and hide under the water only to show up in a different spot. Here are couple of my attempts to capture the fun.

And, of course I was stitching some. I promised to myself that I will work on one project at a time and now I'm keep stitching my Santa's 12 days of Christmas. Santa number 7 and 8 are finished, now I'm working on Santa #9.

Colours are showing depending on the light. The closest to original is Santa #7. I hope I can finish Santa #9 tonight and then I will have to finish three more Santas before Christmas. Can I do it? What do you think?

So long my friends,


  1. What fun to go sailing and be accompanied by sea lions. Thank you for sharing your videos. Love seeing your stitching projects.

  2. Congrats on 2 more Santa's done Evalina. You can do it.


  3. Your Santas are wonderful, that is a wonderful series. You can finish them, I'm sure of it. Thanks for the videos.

  4. The sailing looked like fun! Fabulous Xmas finishes.

  5. How fun to come along for a little sail-along and watch for peeks of those rascal sea lions. Lovely to see your stitching as well. I'm betting you'll get the rest of the Santas done, but I don't know. I'm still trying to figure out how we almost at the midpoint of November already.

  6. What a beautiful place to be sailing! Sure, you can finish. We are due for more rain, that should help!

  7. Glad you're enjoying the sailing, living the high life, even if it's not quite the Caribbean!
    Great work on your PS Santas too.

  8. Prairie schooler is always a delight. very pretty

  9. Great pictures and stitching! I love the interpretation of ladies dancing :)
