Lindy Says: Set sail with the most adorable seaside stitch! Octopus, seagull, and parrot, OH MY! Saltwater Scrapbook is a collaborative project with Jeannine McGowan of The Blue Flower, who did Part 1. Part 2 is my contribution and contains the group of five shown below. Add her four to complete the piece, or just stitch which smalls are your favorite!
The Blue Flower says: This project is a collaboration between myself and Lindy Stitches. The idea was inspired by folk art quilts. I love the way everyone creates their own "block" and they can be combined into a harmonious whole. There are 9 "block" designs in total - 4 in this chart and 5 in "Saltwater Scrapbook - Part 2" from Lindy Stitches. They are all the same size, and use the same threads. Stitchers can mix and match the blocks into ornaments, drums, little "quilts" - whatever takes their fancy. I had a wonderful time designing these blocks - particularly the girl and her dog leaping off the pier into the sea.
The models are stitched on 40 count "Silvermist" linen from Fabrics By Stephanie. The total stitch count is 123 wide x 123 high (which includes all four blocks - each block is 61 x 61). The models are stitched with a mix of DMC and overdyed cotton threads.
▶FLOSS LIST: The same Weeks Dye Works are used for Part 1 and 2, and one skein of each color will provide enough for the full project. You'll need Weeks Dye Works Bark, Bright Leaf, Cadet, Red Rocks, Sandcastle, and Twilight.
