First off, our dear customer, Carol M., is stitching "Beggar's 4th" by Threadwork Primitives:
website. Thank you, AuryTM, for your generosity!
Here's what the finished project looks like. I estimate this as being a two-week project (bear in mind I work full-time, so most of my stitching is done on the weekend and at lunch and sometimes before bed--you may finish it more quickly than I can).
I also purchased the August 2014 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine for the Cape Cod Summer project on the cover. Looking at the proximity of the water to the cottage, I'd say it's a storm disaster waiting to happen. I'm glad I'm going to own the thread version of it! Stitched in DMCs--if you can't make it to the beach this summer, this will make you feel cooler--and it's a lot less expensive than going to the Cape!
Here are two quick-to-stitch sweet JBW designs: "Seaside Alphabet" and
