Seaside stitching

June 8, 2012

I live in the English midlands, about as far as it is possible to get from the sea in Britain. But I love the seaside and have lots of seaside pictures on my walls.

Here are two colourful cross stitch seaside pictures:

‘Beach Huts Sampler’ cross stitch

The ‘Beach Huts Sampler’ kit has been discontinued but came from Jolly Red who do lots of other brightly-coloured cross stitch kits. I have also stitched Two Elephants and Wildflower Meadow from their range.

I am linking up with this month’s Needlework Days at Feisty Tapas. Thank you Maria for inspiring me to take photos of my needlework!

    I love them both! I love seaside themes. I’m planning on stitching some sailboats on the set of towels that I have waiting to be stitched, for T to use. I remember finding a cross-stitch alphabet with nautical flags in a magazine years ago and thinking I’d love to stitch it, there really isn’t enough time to stitch everything!

      Sailboats would make a great border for a towel. Don’t forget to share a photo of the end result 🙂

      As you say, there really isn’t time to stitch everything. So I’ve decided to only stitch stuff I really love. I have given several kits to the local Oxfam shop recently so that someone else will have chance to stitch the things I would never get round to doing.

    Lovely pictures! The Jolly Red designs are gorgeous, I’ve stitched one of their Christmas stockings (same design twice) and I’ve often looked longingly at their cross stitch designs.

      The Jolly Red cross stitch designs are really lovely. I’ve done 3 so far, and am part way through a 4th (with a couple more stashed away to do when I get time). Perhaps you could treat yourself to one when you have finished your current project?
