Journey to the sea...

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingPhotobucket - Video and Image HostingI have just collected this picture from the framers today but I stitched it long ago in 2003... It was originally meant it to be a gift for a special friend from Cumbria ... mmmm...I guess I am keeping it now...lol...it is going to look very nice in my bathroom.

I used mainly DMC threads as I didn't have many overdyed threads back then (still haven't). No.12 perle is used for the seagulls and the waves, if you look closely you will see the sea is actually the alphabet.

I might buy two sailboat buttons to attach to the bottom of the frame but I had a bit of trouble trying to get them before so I might not bother.

Oh, this is such a lovely piece, and perfect for a bathroom indeed. I just love that the sea is made up of an alphabet. Lovely!

Okay, Helen, I NEED this chart to go in MY maritime-themed bathroom! I've never seen it before! Who is it by? And, as always, great stitching. The idea of attaching the two buttons to the frame sounds neat!
