Seaside Inspiration

I went for a walk along the beach today.  The Sandgate Sea Festival is coming up at the end of the month and I made this little guy to mark the occasion.  I was experimenting again with some free-motion quilting and applique and then stuffed it with feathers.  One thing I can tell you....NEVER open a bag of feathers in the house!  I'm afraid the cat's going to be accused of all kinds of horrors.  Sorry, Milly.

  1. I love your seagull - he looks like he is about to pinch your icecream!

    Do your feather stuffing in the empty bath then you can just wash them down the plughole - ooops! hoover them up I mean!!

    Are you near Sandgate? I used to live in Folkestone, taught there for years and now teach Adult ed clases at the Cube.
