My dad has always had a love of fishing. I can remember when I was little the nights when he would put me in the back of the van, and off we would go to Felixstowe where he would fish off the pier.

For a few years, he lived in Tenby, West Wales, where he was able to go sea fishing again, so it was with him in mind that I chose this cross stitch kit.

Most of the design is stitched using cross stich, but the sail lines are done in straight stich. I love the shadow effects and the sun on the water. The picture does not do this justice and I will choose a frame and mount to compliment this.
