I have no idea, why I’m head over heels in the nautical stuff these days. Maybe it’s because of spending summer in the city? Anyway, here is a collection of amazing free cross stitch patterns with fishes, dolphins, seashells, ships and everything we love about the sea 🙂
Pick of the week: By the seaside

On my holidays I love going to the seaside! I love the feeling of sand under my feet, the bright colors, the seashells and even the salty smell (especially that). So here are three patterns that try to capture that mood, three, because stopping at one was practically impossible 🙂
A Day at the Sea (versions 1, 2, and 3)
All three patterns are available in my Etsy shop ($3.99 each): https://www.etsy.com/shop/HappyStitchNet
But I feel I’m growing older
And the songs that I have sung
Echo in the distance
Like the sound
Of a windmill going ’round
I guess I’ll always be
A soldier of fortune…
Todays cross stitch pattern features an old windmill standing on the seashore. I could not help of remembering the Deep Purple song from above while working on the chart, even had to turn it on on Youtube.
