I started this originally to have it completed as a Christmas present, but work was too busy, I just didn't have enough hours in the day to complete everything I wanted to do.
Anyway, my parents' master bathroom is shell themed, not beach themed. When I saw this pattern in the store it seemed perfect.
Interesting side note: I seem to make quite a few things for my parents' bathrooms. For those confused I made Anthera and Colombina for a bathroom too, even though they currently are not in the intended bathroom.
Wow, I'm chatty today... moving on: Here I have a couple of colors, mostly neutrals.
Then I got tired of neutrals and did the pinks.
And everything else (except back-stitching):
And finally the back-stitching that I was procrastinating on.
Funny thing is another blog I follow, Cross Stitch Angel, also stitched this. She finished this early last month. She decided to completely omit the back-stitching on the starfish.
