Lighthouse Bookmark

Good evening everyone,

My lighthouse loving friend got a little surprise today. She gave me this kit a while ago because she was having a clear out and had no intention of ever doing cross stitch again. Lucky me!

Lighthouse kit

As you can see, the kit has a lovely clear chart and it only took me a couple of evenings to stitch and finish it into a bookmark for her. The aida fabric is quite a rustic grey beige and thereโ€™s still enough left to make at least one more bookmark. I simply backed it with dark brown felt and pinked the edges.


This was a perfect kit to fill a couple of chilly nights up north. Iโ€™m sure thereโ€™s another lighthouse themed cross stitch kit in the huge pile Lin gave me ๐Ÿ™‚

Bell Rock lighthouse has a very interesting history. You can read all about it here:

  1. It’s lovely – I especially like the effect of the waves breaking against the rock at the base. Nice surprise for your friend!

    I am the very lucky recipient of the Bell Rock lighthouse and I love it. Of course what makes it more special is that you made it. Thank you so much. It is too nice for a book mark I am going to find a place to display it. Only a few weeks ago I was in Scotland visiting lighthouses and although I wasn’t able to get out to Bell Rock I was able to see it from Arbroath harbour with my binoculars so that makes this gift even more notable.

  4. It’s really nice. Lucky you.

  5. A fun project, and a great history lesson too!

  6. a lovely little finish!
