#160    "Beach Cottage" Sampler

 Dreams are made of Sand and Sun...!  Welcome to our little yellow cottage by the sea! This beautiful beach retreat is the perfect place to dream about. Surrounded by a bountiful garden full of flowers, grasses, roses and a white picket fence, this is truly your ideal beach getaway. You will stitch and imagine yourself tanning on a chaise lounge, or sitting under the shade of the beach umbrella sipping a tall cool glass of something delicious, while the resident cat purrs by the front door. The linen used was an overdyed aqua linen which is now discontinued. I recommend “Ice Blue” Cashel but you can use a light blue linen of your choice.. the blue preferably aqua toned. Lyns has several available, so enjoy choosing your own favorite linen to bring this project to life! This is a perfect design to hang in your home or cottage while you dream of sand and sunshine! - Thea

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack: Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors, as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack. Needlepoint Inc. silk floss has 8 strands per length The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length. Dinky Dyes has 6 strands per length. FYI: We noticed that some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires 1.5 yards. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't get confused if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
