Stitching On The Seas

All those sea days spent sailing to and fro on the big boat were not spent with idle hands, far from it. Like I did two years ago, this past trip saw many hours on the ocean spent hand stitching these itty-bitty motifs onto Essex Linen. They will soon be set into a child-sized quilt. (Click here to read a similar post from 2017.)  This time, using the same awesome book: "S" Is For Stitch by Kristyne Czepuryk,  I stitched out the boy version.

Stay tuned to see how this one is set together. The colors are much more muted this time, I love it!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Life is Good!

Thats it!!! That is the book that has been in the back of my mind for a bit now. I have been thinking of doing some " little bits" of stitching and knew I had seen something a while back that made me grin. It was that book and those ABC's!

This is such a good idea for a portable project! And won't it make the cutest quilt?! Great work--I look forward to seeing it assembled.

It sounds like a great place to have a vacation! And keeping your hands busy is a great way to spend leisure time! I like to keep tatting in my carry on bag for waiting at the airport not to mention hours in the air.
