No Pets on the Beach


As you may have noticed, I’ve kind of been OD-ing on pics of the beach lately. Well, now I’m in traction from walking 20 miles in the dunes over the last two days.

So we might as well transition back to needlepoint pics, but before going there I have to tell you one of my pet peeves is when people ignore a large No Pets sign that’s displayed kind of PROMINENTLY on the beach I go to most often.

No Pets Allowed

Why do people do this.?  Oh I know.  They’re special.  Not just their pets.  Them. Personally.  Special. The nesting birds hate this.  It is very disruptive. But people bring Fluffy along all the same, and it’s always when the wildlife official has a day off.

Moving on from the zone of bad vibes, this Cat in the Basket is a little cross stitch I did a while back. It was a breeze to stitch and took maybe an hour. I think I was attracted to it because of the very cool mat that came with the whole deal-e-o.
