Children by the Seaside #WIP #xstitch

Started last summer with nothing but the sky. At that point I had only these three children. And that summer was our first beach adventure. Now this summer I’m making good progress on the tents and a little of the beach so far. Love this @joanelliottdesign ! Children by the Seaside 🌊 on 28 count 2×2 on laguna

Enchanted Aurora #WIP #xstitch Update

All of her purple shades are completed without counting more than 20-30 across. So she’ll have to wait on some other colors like greens and blues. Now what else purple should I work on this weekend? #canada #winter #stitchfromstash2017 #stitchmaynia #xstitch #xstitchersofinstagram #crossstitch #flosstube #enchantedaurora #joanelliott from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2kKkCLe
