For Mother's Day this year my little boy bought me this book - Sand Sea & Cross Stitch.
It has so many charts in it that I would love to stitch. I love the Sea and the Seaside so this book was perfect for me.
The first design I decided to stitch is the months of the year. I am stitching them on one piece of fabric and will hopefully make it in to a wall hanging when it is completed. Here is the first month I completed January.
The design is charted for DMC but I decided to switch out some of the colours for other threads I have in my stash. The solid border is stitched in Pushkina from Fiberlicious, the inner dotted border is stitched in Lemon & Lime from Dinky Dyes, the month is stitched in Spring Crocus from Crafty Kitten, the red is Terracotta from Dinky Dyes and the yellow Nullabor from Dinky Dyes. Everything else I have stitched in the recommended DMC.
I'm really enjoying stitching this and the fact that it was a Mother's Day present makes it that little bit more special.
Keep stitching and smiling
