Sailboat Embroidery

I recently finished embroidering this sailboat motif.  I used soft colors, especially for the sails and the boat.

I used three very basic stitches on this project.  The sails are outlined in Back Stitch and filled with Straight Stitch.  The pennant banner is done with Stem Stitch and Straight Stitch.  The boat is outlined and accented with Stem Stitch.  There are a few filling lines of Straight Stitch.

Here are the floss color numbers used :
