Those summer holidays are finally on the horizon and as soon as holiday mode kicks in we'll be flooding to the beach for those feel good memories, summer sunshine and sandy feet! There's something nostalgic about heading to the seaside in the summer with the family for some fish and chips and a dip in the sea. The summer never seems to stick around for very long, so we've captured 8 of our favourite beach scenes that will last forever, and are certainly more predictable than British weather!

1.Beach Walkies - No trip to the seaside is complete without your army of dogs! They're always up for a salty dip in the sea, with their tails wagging and happy expressions. This kit is the perfect way to remember those perfect summer beach days with your dogs.

2. Beach Hut Fun Cross Stitch Kit - A sweet colour sensation, those beach huts are wonderfully fun and nostalgic for the soul. This kit from Bothy Threads is a real summery delight to stitch. The perfect project post holiday!

3. Collecting Shells Cross Stitch Kit  - Whether  it's to remember your little girl's first steps on the beach or those nostalgic memories that always flood back when you hit the sand, this is a gorgeous beach scene that features a little girl collecting shells on the beach. This charming kit is perfect for all abilities.

4.  Cut Thru' Camper Van Cross Stitch Kit - Does hitting the open road with your family in the summer look a bit like this?

A super fun kit to stitch at any time of the year.

5.  Beach Huts Cross Stitch Kit - A cartoonist approach to the glorious seaside, this beach huts scene perfectly sums up the great British seaside. Colourful beach huts, albeit it a little worn, seagulls and a somewhat cloudy sky. It perfectly captures a summer scene at a British beach.

6. Beach Babies Cross Stitch - Beach babies! If this scene doesn't sum up the true essence of summer holidays by the beach with your little one's we don't know what will! Packed full of colour and details to evoke smiles and laughter well after the summer holidays have finished.
