Rachaels RR


I am posting this for Veronica (Mum) to show Rachaels RR...this was finished sometime last week. The idea for this block came from a journey to a seaside town called Whitby and from Rachaels request for a seaside theme for her neighbourhood if at all possible. Several charts were used in creating this - Veronica has put all the details in the diary Rachael sent. Quite a few stitches were used on this xstitch of course, 1/1 xstitch, Satin Stitch, French Knots for the sea foam, Long Stitch for the boats rigging and back stitch. Veronica says she hopes you like it Rachael and to let you know she has thoroughly enjoyed stitching this piece for you :-)
The bottom picture shows all the stitching to date...Rachaels own in the middle, Diannes top left then Veronicas bottom left sorry the pic is full of shadows but this is a HUGE piece of linen.

Nice square Veronica!!! I had no idea Rachael wanted a seaside theme...hmmm... best start hunting, as I am after Su!!! I couldn't tell by Rachael's own block that she wanted this theme, so I was a bit surprised. I just adore what Veronica added to her area! Nice!

Lena or Su-think your Mum is ready for Barbara's or does she want to take a breather? Let me know either here, email or on my blog.
