Message From the Sea cross stitch pattern captures all the mystery and excitement of finding a bottle along the seashore — then opening it and discovering a written message inside. This beautiful project is a replica of the 1884 painting by Sir John Everett Millais.
This is a full coverage cross stitch that measures 34.5cm x 49.3cm (190 x 272 stitches) when completed on 14 count Aida cloth. You’ll need 131 different DMC colours and a few months to complete your project as there are 51,680 cross stitches. What we think you’ll love about this piece are the extraordinary textures and gorgeous ginger colour palette that closely resembles the original artwork.

John Everett Millais is one our favourite artists and we just love charting the artworks of the imaginative Pre-Raphaelite painter. Millais was actually a child prodigy and was already studying with the Royal Academy by age 11. He is famous for his gorgeous paintings of literary characters, religion and mythology.
