WIP-it Wednesday...

...and I finally took a photo of the latest cross stitch project.

This is Sail, a design by Shepherd's Bush with buttons by Just Another Button Company:

Sail cross stitch, as of 9/16/2015

When I bought this in 2004, the shop kitted the design with the buttons and the fabric. I was happy that I could purchase the fabric with it as it can be difficult to get this type of fabric locally. Now that I'm working on it, I am not happy with the fabric color they chose. It's too close to one of the colors in the beach ball and in the lighthouse.  I'm going to leave it for now, but if I really hate it in the lighthouse, I'll pick a darker blue from my DMC stash.
