At Last, Humidity is Finally Gone!

The beach was surprisingly cool, case even though the temperature was close to 100. There was a nice breeze coming off the ocean, cialis sale and the water was 78 degrees, with NO jellyfish, but after a couple of hours dark clouds began to form. It started to look threatening, and I knew I should get off the beach, but waited for the lifeguards to signal everyone to leave. Then way in the distance I could see what looked like a huge sandstorm. It was heading our way. Just then the life guard’s whistles began to blow and everyone started packing up as quickly as they could. The wind got very strong and the sky turned black. Beach umbrellas were flying down the beach! Everyone was running for cover.  I ran as fast as I could, carrying my beach bag, umbrella and chair, but the strong winds made it difficult. Finally, I made it, I was in my apartment, and then the rains came.  Everyone came out on their balconies to watch as the storm as it rolled across the sky. It was fun. I love thunderstorms at the beach.  Since then the weather has been just beautiful. The humidity is gone, and it feels just perfect.

I wanted to show this little bedspread. The entire design is all done in french knots. I want to call it candlewicking, but I don’t think that’s the right name for it. It’s not whitework either, I don’t think. Does anyone know what you would call it? I bought it a couple of years ago in the Goodwill store for $3.!!  It has hand done fringe all around the bottom too. Sorry I can’t get better shots of it, but my apartment is small, and this bed is in a small entry way where it’s hard to stand far enough back to get a good shot. Gotta go now.

    tj, I think that’s it, candlewicking. I wish I knew how old it is. It’s so light, like handkerchief material, very fine.. thank you about the photo, glad you like it. I am such a fuss budget, it bothered me that the star fish was off center but I was too lazy to take another one.

    It’s beautiful! Reminds me of a bedspread at my grandma’s house. What a deal!
    I love a good thunderstorm too. :)

    Hi Tracey. Your grandma could have one of these in her house but it might also be a chanel bedspread, usually from the 50′s.
    Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog.

    It does look like candlewicking to me too, but I remember a spread my brothers had and it was called chenille. They had sailboats on them. Another name that comes to mind is tufting, but I am not sure that applies to your spread. It is very beautiful. I wish I could touch it!

    Hello Barbara. Yes, I am familiar with chenille. No I do think this is candlewicking. It is very beautiful. I am not familiar with tufting, i’ll have to google that.
    Thank you
    Carole-don’t forget that photo!
