angrboda: A close up of some cross-stitch (Cross-stitch)
[personal profile] angrboda posting in [community profile] cross_stitch
We are currently on holiday in a rather splendid little summer house. There is a great feeling of luxury involved in sitting here stitching in front of a lovely sea view.

I took a new project with me for the sake of simplicity and also because the other one is so close to being finished.

This one is going to be a little fishing boat, which seems rather appropriate given the aforementioned sea view. It's a design by Permin and was featured in Cross Stitch  Collection magazine in May this year.


The photo has turned out a bit dark. I absolutely adore the framing of half cross stitches. It's like part of the design is slightly out of focus, and it rather reminds me of impressionistic paintings. I'm half tempted to do a whole design up that way one of these days just to see how it would look.

I have done a few small things in half stitches only. Here is one I posted about.

I can already tell it's going to look great. I love half stitches for texture as well (and because they're so fast, too!)
