To Fly Above The Sea

It's back from the printer and available for purchase!!  This 28-page book includes 14 original counted cross stitch designs featuring the sea, shells and seabirds.  You'll find a few samplers as well as smaller pieces which are perfect for beach stitching, or those times when you only have a short time to complete a project.

There is a black and white photo of the finished model with each chart, as well as information on the fabric used in the model and a complete listing of floss.  When overdyes were used, you'll find a DMC conversion on the same page.  There is a full color insert in the center of the book which features all the completed models so you can see what the designs look like in color.  Some designs were framed - all in simple but beautiful frames found at Hobby Lobby or Michaels.  Some designs were finished as pillows or ornaments.

Also included in the book are sea-themed verses and poems, photos, and interesting tidbits of information on shells and seabirds.

The retail price of the book is $17.00, and a donation of $5.00 for the sale of each book is being given to the Audubon Society to assist with their work in the Gulf.  I hope you enjoy it!!  Books can be purchased from me or from Mary Kathryn at Handcrafts Online.  If you have any questions, please send me an email at joanne@ofgenerationspast.com
