Cross-Stitched Sea Shells

July 10, 2012

Some of you requested more (and better) photographs of the embroidered sea shells that decorate my jars of sea shells from Hawaii.  I searched for and found the pattern I used, from This is . . . “The Magic of the Sea” by Annie Designs, copyright 1980.  I haven’t done counted cross-stitch embroidery in a very long time, so it was fun to resurrect these old embroideries for you.  Thank you for your interest in them!

  4. i am attempting to learn to cross stitch. i think what i love about it is when you see cross stitch, needlework, or crochet, you can see that the person who made it put so much love and energy into it. it doesn’t go unnoticed.
