To The Beach Series- Charts 1-3................................Hands on Design

Spend a year at the beach with Cathy's series, "To The Beach."  Twelve designs to remind you of all things wonderful about the beach.  In the first chart, "Oh Whale", a trio of whales are shown, while on the 2nd of the series, "A Little Cottage",  you will be reminded of the cottage you and your family stayed in while at the beach, with a view of the ocean and the umbrellas planted firmly in the beach to protect you from the sun. The 3rd in the series, "Adjust Your Sails" reminds you of the boats, etc., that float by while you are staring endlessly at the beautiful water.  Shown stitched on 32 ct. Toasted Almond linen, these would be beautiful on many fabrics, so pick a color you love, a count you like and start your collection.  These charts would make a great display using just a couple of them or all of them.  They are all the same size when finished, 5"x 7" and use the same color pallette, although not all colors are used on every design.  On the first 3 charts the Gentle Arts fibers used are: Aged Pewter (1,2,3), Peacock (2), Bluebell (1,2), Holly Berry (2), Grape Leaf (2), Oatmeal (1,2,3), Chamomile (1,2,3), Butternut Squash (3,2), Old Brick (2,3), Portabella (1,3), Terra Cotta (1), Summer Showers (1), Sea Spray (1,2).  We have framed ours in the Boardwalk Frames, (shown under frames on our web) using the 3 different colors.  They really go together nicely and the boardwalk moulding looks terrific.
