A Story Told in Stitches: A day at the Seaside
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY AGNES DELAGE-CALVET
Cross stitch designer Agnès Delage-Calvet has come up with a great idea, telling a story that unfolds, ribbon-like, as you stitch it. Once stitched, it can be mounted accordeon-style as it it were a little book with"pages".
Mum is smimming laps while the elder sister is sunbathing in a deckchair and keeping an eye on the younger one. The twins are scuba diving, the dog is floating in a buoy. But where's dad gone?
This is a very colorful and sunny beach scene, full of fun details to stitch.
A Story told in Stitches is designed as a series. Each feature a family having fun spending time together. Check out the Garden scene below.
