Sea Bed



This is a cross stitch design from a magazine, and although it is quite intensive in the number of stitches, it was quite easy to do. It was done completely in whole cross stich and I really enjoyed the colours in the design.

The frame was a wooden frame that I recycled. I painted it yellow to compliment the design of the picture. So that the stiching didn't appear flat, I placed a layer of wadding behind the stithing. It just gives a much softer appearance.

The colours are perfect for the sea bed. It must have taken ages to finish.

Thank you for the encouraging words on my starfish motif sweater. Your stitchery is beautiful and inspiring for a charity blanket I committed to design and knit by end of the month. You're so very much appreciated.
