Anja Koote Holland Which cross stitch designer would be your dream dinner party guest? Can I have three guests, please? I love the motifs of Jenny Barton, Maria Diaz and Susan Bates.

your gift! fun nautical card kit

Set sail across a mini ocean of stitches with this charming seaside scene! You’ll have fun bringing this delightful porthole view to life in classic maritime shades of red, blue and yellow. Take a leisurely cruise through the simple whole stitches, then enjoy navigating your way through intricate swirls of backstitch to add the essential finishing touches to your project. You’ll use a single strand of very dark blue thread to outline all the dainty details on the ship, sea, lighthouse and sky. Once your stitch is looking tip-top and seaworthy, it’s time to display it in your dotty aperture card, designed especially for this project.
