Cross Stitch and Sunsets

I hope all of you have had a good week.  This was our Spring Break out here so I did not have my volunteer job at the school.  It was a nice quiet week for us.  We did have more showers this week so our world is filled with all different shades of beautiful spring green,  after all Seattle is called The Emerald city!
One evening we decided to go over to one of our favorite spots to enjoy the sunset.  The pictures show an area about 30 minutes from our home. I'm also making great progress on  "Bittersweet September" by BBD.  I think I'll be finished after just a few more nights of stitching. 

 Sorry for the wrinkles.  I never press until I am all finished.  This was a fun house to stitch.  I think because of the way the colors were broken up.  I changed the color of the pot on the roof as it was too close in color to the shade of the roof.  I have one more design to put in the pot and the border flowers to finish and then it will be done.  I have an idea for finishing that I will share when I am finished,

 Sunset at Seabeck!

 These are the Olympic Mountains.  During most winters they would have lots more snow at this time of year.
 
I love the way the evergreens look in front of the mountain.

Thanks so much for joining me today.  We went for a nice walk so I will show the photos when I finish the project.  Have a wonderful week!
