Beachy-Keen

Hello Friends!

This morning I worked on finishing up these two beach-themed UFOs I had in my pile since before I left on vacation.


This first FFO is Lizzie Kate's "Beach" from "Red, White and Beach." I mounted the stitched piece to some coordinating aqua fabric and then mounted them both to this white-washed wood board. I used some straw, crunchy ribbon for the bow and then topped one small cover button on top of another cover button to pull out the orange from the fish and get in some color.

STITCHY DETAILS:

Pattern: "Beach" from "Red, White and Beach"
Designer: Lizzie Kate
Red White & Beach - Cross Stitch Pattern

Colors Used: DMC 3853, 3790, 930, 3828, 349, 581, 932, 3848, 310 and White



The second UFO was finished as an small easel. I went back and forth on the color of the easel but ultimately settled for white so that the colors in the piece pop better.

I mounted the stitched piece to some aqua fabric and then mounted both to the front of the easel. Then I made some cording out of the olive green in the pattern and added an orange bow with aqua cover button center.

Both are so adorable. I love how your background fabrics and trims compliment the stitching without detracting. Well done!
