Sort of Like A Day At The Beach

Hello Friends.
Thank you for all the comments on the last post. I think it is perfect without the backstitching.
The weekend flew by. On Saturday Rich and I headed up to Winston Salem to the annual air show. About 40,000 people attend this event over the weekend.



You take your chairs and face the runway. The noise is kind if like the beach with the airplane notice taking the place of the ocean. The beach that we alway went to ( Long Beach Island, NJ) had planes that would fly down the beach towing signs.



They had quite a few WW II planes, some helicopters...



and some jets but they were too fast for me to try and take a picture of.



We had a great time and came home a little sunburned.
Sunday was spent doing some housework, cooking and grocery shopping.
I am working on some of the over one motifs on Marietta but I haven't made much progress.




Well that's it from here.
Have a great Monday!

Chris

When I went to an airshow earlier this year, I came home with a sunburn also. Hopefully, yours isn't bad.

Nice progress on Marietta.

Air shows are such fun. I love the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds. They just take my breath away every time they zoom by. Such a rush!!! ...This is such a pretty piece! xo

I have never attended an airship, however, we live close enough to our local airport, that we can catch some of the planes flying over during their show.
