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!

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 there’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. I’m sure there’s another lighthouse themed cross stitch kit in the huge pile Lin gave me 🙂

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