Lighting up the night sky

Good afternoon everyone,

It’s being raining here for the last few days, not exactly what we’d expect here at the end of May. So what better way to spend an afternoon than to stitch a card for a friend who hasn’t been feeling 100% lately.

Lighthouse

My friend loves lighthouses. She’s interested in their history and visits them whenever she can. I wonder how many she has climbed so far. I actually live very close to a lighthouse and the view you get from the top of it is truly amazing! As long as they don’t test the fog horn while you are up there, it can be very pleasant Winking smile.

Anyway, I knew I had a cross stitch chart for a lighthouse somewhere in my stash. This one is by Michael Powell. You can find more of his designs here if you are interested.

Thanks to the Royal Mail, my friend received her card this morning even though I only posted it yesterday. She wasted no time putting it in a gorgeous frame Smile. I couldn’t have chosen better myself.

  4. that is lovely, no wonder she framed it! I saw another Michael Powell design on another blog yesterday… it reminded me i’ve always wanted to stitch one of his designs.

    • I like their cartoon style and the bright colours he uses. There are a lot of colour changes and some crosses using two different colours at once, even on a mini design like this one.
