This piece took about a month to work on - in between getting other presents made for Christmas !

We lived in the UK for 10 years, and loved to holiday in Tenby, Wales. This was taken from a photo I have of Tenby and inspired by some coasters I bought while there. We are now in Australia - so wanted a reminder of the UK.

I only used split stitch here I think.

Hope you like it !! Oh and sorry it looks so creased I was so excited to have finished that I just took the photo then ans there !

Not exactly the phot - can not find it on my puter right now - but this is one very similar - taken when we were there in 2005. This shows more of the left of the harbour ....
