A friend on facebook recently said that she collected sea glass but only had a few pieces. I asked her if she would like some more as I have it in abundance. It was quickly arranged that as she lived quite close by we would meet up at the services on the local motorway. Now I needed a box to put it in and having found out that Ailsa loves the colour Purple I set to making one to transport the sea glass in.
Here is the finished box.
I'm pleased too as I have recently been back to the cove I collect it from and my stocks are now replenished.!! There was plenty of brown this time and blue and I even found a piece of red glass which is very rare indeed. You can just see it sitting on top of the large white chunk at the top of the bowl. This was all collected over the course of 4 afternoons trawling along the beach. Very good exercise!!
Thick cardboard cut to size and then each section covered with the chosen fabric. Then the pieces are laid out in the order they need to be stitched together.
I have just realised from the date I took these photos that we had some pretty good weather the beginning of April as I sat in the garden making this over several days.
If anyone would like some Sea Glass then just email me at the address on my side bar.
