Wishing for a Tropical Vacation

With all the heat here this week I am wishing for a warm tropical vacation with lots of water to swim in.  I may live in Washington State but I am on the desert side and boy can it get hot and dry over here.  Since it has been hot it also means that it has been sunny and I was finally able to take pictures of this towel that I finished last month.

I bought this pattern back in February when I got my new tablecloth.  The sheet had two different flamingo patterns two deer patterns and some cute guest towel patterns with towels saying this if for you.  I have not been able to identity them so any help would be great.  Thank you bookwormbethie  it is a Vogart 207 Sixteen novelty designs for guest towels, scarfs, blouses, etc.  I had to squint to see it on the website because I had missed it before.  Now I wish I had the envelope to go with it but the patterns are the important part.

I also finished my napkins all four of them.  They turned out pretty nice I just wish I could photograph orange better than I did.  I decided not to fill in the blue or white flowers because each time I tried it seemed to make the napkin look very heavy. Thank you again all for your suggestions.

I have been in the house quite a bit lately embroidering and I am getting anxious to get outside and be in the sun but it has also been so hot that you melt.  Maybe for some of you the 90's is not to hot but for here and this early in the summer it is quite hot and we do not have much shade at our house go going outside it like walking under a heat lamp.  So tonight I plan to go bike riding with some friends at 7pm in hopes that it will be cool enough.   Wish me luck and hope I do not get heat stroke.  How do you beat the heat this time of year.
