Oystercatcher

I always take a piece of embroidery when I’m going on a long train journey and my recent visit to Scotland was no exception. Except that the piece I had planned to stitch was begun and almost completed before I even left home so I prepared a second piece which I’ll show you another day.  I didn’t touch the oystercatcher piece at all on the journey or during my visit but I did finish it this week. The design was from the June/July issue of Stitch magazine and I mainly followed the design but you know me, I just have to add a little wax crayon colour every now and again. I also did the pebbles differently and I added some seaweed too. It’s in the folder now, never to be seen again, well, not for a while anyway.

    I tend to take crochet rather than embroidery on journeys, but they do pass more quickly if you have something to do!
    I love the oystercatcher – I hope you’ll bring him out to display!
