Stitching Project- May

I love the sea. You can tell that from the many pictures I take whenever we go to the coast. I love it blue, I love it turquoise and I even love grey of the North Sea.

I love it calm and stormy. I love it when the sun shines and when it doesn’t. I love sunsets and sunrises over the sea,

but best of all I like the White Horses.

So this month I decided to stitch a Seashore Fantasy

First find some fabric and threads

I had this selection bought a number of years ago from Kates Kloths. Sadly this firm doesn’t seem to exist anymore.

I began by Couching the thicker threads, then added French Knots. Then I added the small white shell.

I added ribbon and silver thread, it lacked something. More rooting through my stash.

Left over from a previous project were some small stones. I think that’s it. Sometimes it’s hard to know when I have finished. So here we have have Seashore Fantasy.
