A window into the life of a professional geek, wife and mother (and nonni), stitcher/designer, bibliophile, old-school gamer, and whatever other roles she finds herself in.

She stitches seashells by the seashore...

Two days late, but I've finished my last seasonal bookmark!

While I personally don't go to the beach very often (since sun and red hair don't mix very well), the beach is a summer ritual for many people. With that in mind, I chose an array of items that one can find on beaches for the motifs.

The cross-stitching is done in Victoria Clayton's "Grasses", with an array of Petite Treasure Braids. The chart (another freebie, of course!) is available for download here. If you're new to my blog and/or my designs, all four seasonal bookmarks can be found on my design page here, or via my logo button over to the right.
