Unable to face frogging my teddy bears - I decided a new start was in order... I bought this kit over the Christmas New Year period via ebay... It just appealed to me as we live in an area with lots of beaches and I am always collecting shells...
I gave my husband Andre a choice of which kit (out of a selection from my stash) that he would like to see completed and he chose this one... He wants to see it on the lounge room wall since we have kinda started decorating that area in an under the sea theme. We have 3 beach prints on the wall - a fish candlebra and a dolphin throw adorning the lounge
This xstitch kit is from Dimensions, Inc. and is designed by James Himsworth. The finished size is 10" x 16" (25 x 41 cm) and the fabric size is 14" x 20" (36 x 51 cm). It is a very lovely design of several colorful sea shells, sand dollars, feather, starfish and seaweed and beach grass on the sandy dunes of the seaside beach. In the distance is a red and white lighthouse on the rocky bluffs of the ocean, and several sailboats sailing in the water while seagulls soar above. A perfect design for any lovers of the beach, seashells, the ocean and lighthouses!!!
So last night I started blocking the aida into 10x10 squares... is there an easy way to do this?
