It may officially be Spring but it’s still pretty chilly up North, flowers are braving the cold, just hope there’s not a late frost!

I’m developing some more beach hut pieces (hoping to encourage warmer weather!) This one, Sandy Bay, is almost ready to go to Etsy. I’ve used a combination of machine and hand stitch with applique and needle felting. The little hut sits on a shingle and sand beach with gentle waves lapping at the shore, the bunting is up but, being a British beach hut the clouds aren’t too far behind – but what’s a beach hut for if not to provide shelter, and refreshments in the Great British Summer;)

It will be joined by two others, Sole Bay *see below* and the Lobster Pot. On each one, the door of the beach hut can be opened to show a little scene inside:)
