At Ocean’s Edge Hoop



The name Avocet, which somehow I always thought must have a very interesting origin turns out, upon research, to mean nothing more than “elegant bird” from the Italian “avosetta”. Avocet’s are coastal birds, who live on salt marshes with mud islands and they’re very vulnerable to freak tides, storms and floods. They neared extinction in the UK in the mid-twentieth century, but since then have made a comeback and I was lucky enough to see these beautiful birds more than once when I lived near the coast.

Shown mounted in 9” x 5” oval hoop.

This is a lovely easy project for a confident beginner as the only stitch used is split stitch.
Pattern includes full size templates (both the right way round and reversed to suit your preferred method of transfer), stitching instructions and DMC floss requirements.

Please note, this is a pattern to stitch your own hoop and not the finished item. It is a digital pattern and you will not receive anything in the post.  Your pattern will be emailed to you and will also be available to download from your Bustle & Sew account as soon as your order is complete.
