The heat is really getting to me at my house - it's dry and even the recent rain didn't cool things down too much. If it is going to be this hot, I wish I were at the beach! At least there, I could jump in the waves for awhile to cool off. (It's more likely I would stay in the A/C until sunset and then go to the beach.)

Maybe if I stitch some ocean-themed patterns like this free Sailboat Cross Stitch Motif I will feel better. This simple pattern would make a great addition to a beach towel or swimsuit cover up. Stitch the design on Aida and applique it or use waste canvas to stitch directly on the material.
