Blue blue swimming! - Soda Stitch



The weather feels quite Autumn-like here in my little part of the world,  
I thought this refreshing & colourful dip in the big blue sea
would be a nice touch to mark the end of the "British Summer"


 The chart is called Blue blue swimming! and is from Soda Stitch
An Indonesian company full of adorable little designs


My model was stitched on 14 ct aida fabric, pewter colour,
using all 16 recommended DMC threads.


I have opted for a quick ornament finish
using polka fabric, fish shaped button, ribbon and wooden beads, all from my stash

Hope you like it!



oOo

Today the postman was once again my friend.
He kindly delivered a bubbly envelope all the way from the big US of A

It was my giveaway win from Rhona over at - Tangled Threads -


I won the lovely chart called
Eat, Sleep, Stitch from Cherry Wood Design Studios

To my great surprise I found a few little extras:
A thread cutter (how cool is that, I always wanted one!),
needles, ladybird buttons and a butterfly bookmark to make

Thank you so much Rhona, I will definitely put all these to good use

Until my next post,
Toodles
