Cross Stitch Seaside Mystery

How about cross stitching a young girl reading a message she found in a bottle along the seashore?




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.

The Project

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. What we think you’ll love about this piece is the excellent texture, detail and resemblance to the original artwork.

He is famous for his gorgeous paintings of literary characters, religion and mythology.
