Oh I do like...

...to be beside the seaside...which is a little ironic living in the middle of England!
We recently revived memories of a friend's Woolacombe wedding,  enjoying the photos of a beautifully sunny and warm weekend.
For an anniversary present a window of woolly Woolacombe was hooked!


Many sandy strands and bubbly wavelets...





...the green hill in the distance..


 surfs up?!


back view...


...and a different background...


It takes a while to gather materials, so while they were all to hand....




and back





 This has surface crochet footprints on the sand


and in the water



Cuffs have been on my mind for a while....




Loved my visit to a local independent haberdashery shop with an abundant button bounty!







There are a couple of techniques I stumbled upon by happy accident, which I hope to use again!
I really enjoyed my time dipping into the woolly waves!
Hope to wiggle my toes in some real sand sometime this summer! 
Happy Holidays!

That present of the seascape is a work of art....so creative! I love the froth of the waves rolling up the beach. Love your cuff too and you found the perfect button.

I love these! The piece you made for your friends really reminded me of the sea, even before reading the description - well done!! : )

I love your evocation of the seaside, especially the frothy waves and the footprints. The button on your cuff was perfect for a seaside theme!
