Life's a Beach--Stitching for the Beach and Beyond

Are you going to the beach? Need a little project to take along? Lizzie Kate knows you do!

So does Trilogy with these "Sneak Peeks."

Pickel Barrel Designs has the Boardwalk covered. All you need is some salt water taffy or an ice cream (but don't drip it on your fabric!)

JBW has some cute quick stitches. We've shown some possible red fibers to go with these designs, from AVAS (2923), Crescent Colors (Ribbon Red), and Silk 'n Colors (Cayenne Pepper), perfect for this little sampler. You'll have something bright red to savor long after your sunburn has faded away (pssst: use your sunscreen and save the red for French samplers).

JBW's "French Country Squirrel." Note the little animals within the squirrel.

And what could be more fun than stitching a little red Christmas design at the beach? (Or on your deck, or under the air conditioning?)

Speaking of Christmas, look at what Karen did: First she stitched Alessandra Adelaide's "Cardinal Christmas Ball."

Then she matted and framed it! It's quite large and impressive but not an endless stitch. We're picturing it hanging in your foyer by Christmas.

We are open from Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the first Sunday of the month (but not July 3rd because of the holiday). Stitch Night is the first and third Wednesday of the month, but not in July. Please call us to order or if you have questions at 703-360-4600.

Happy Stitching!
