A Little Sea Bathing - The Sampler Girl

Design: A Little Sea Bathing (freebie, no longer on the website)

Designer: The Sampler Girl
Threads: DMC Color Variations
Fabric: 28 count evenweave, antique white

I stitched this for Carol, my partner on the Hooked on Exchanges 'By The Sea' exchange. I adapted a freebie from Tanya, the Sampler Girl, changing the colours a little, and using a different alphabet for the 'signature'.

I finished this as a pinkeep, with ricrac braid to echo the 'wave' theme and trimmed with matching ribbon and pins. It turned out one of my favourite finishes of the year so far, so I think I will have to stitch it again for myself!

To compliment the theme, I made Carol the Hourglass Dishcloth and Anchor scissor fob you can see in the picture below:

To round off the exchange, I added a 'do it yourself' card kit which had shells and other treasures.
