Smitten with cross stitch...

It's official! I am smitten with the Bothy Threads Cut Thru Castle and my beach boys and girl.

We arrived at Coles Bay yesterday; the most magical, secret place in the world. It is so vastly different to regular beach destinations. The red granite mountains overlooking the beach with the bluest water makes this place a haven. One of the beaches is called Wineglass Bay which has arguably the whitest sand in the world.  My three kiddies  are in beach heaven.

I have started cross stitching the third page of the castle. The Wizard's Attic is taking shape on the top right. I will stitch the cutest owls today so stay tuned. This is stitched on 16ct light blur Aida and boy it stitches up fast!

Thanks for building sandcastles on my beach...

I love the Cut Thru Castle! I really want to do at least one of the Cut Thru series, but I'm not sure I can pick which one. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Just visited your lovely blog Dana and I think you would like the Cut Thrus as they are similar to the Nursery Rhymes project you are stitching.
