Crosby Beach 25th July, Cushion Covers Prize

We had guests staying so we went to Crosby Beach to see the Iron Men by Anthony Gormley also known as “Another Place.”
 The iron men are scattered over the beach.
 Some are far out so are only uncovered by the low tide.
 A keen art student was with us so I will be interested to see what she creates inspired by her visit.
 There were so many of nature’s textures to be seen.
 The iron men stare out to sea. It reminded me of that 1951 film “The Day the Earth Stood Still” and the robot Gort.
 Tortoiseshell looking jellyfish.
 A bit closer- what amazing detail! Love the colours.
 View of Bootle Docks, Liverpool.
 The beach was full of worm casts and razor shells. They are called that because they resemble the old fashioned cut throat razors.
 A little dog walked this way.
 The oil like colours on this shell were so pretty.
 Old bricks and stones worn smooth by the sea.
 Some iron men are reclaimed by the sea when it comes in.
The views from these new Art Deco ish flats must be amazing.
Now I have finally got some makings to share with you. A couple of cushion covers based on Lynette Anderson’s ones from her book “It’s Quilting Cats and Dogs
Hand blanket stitched applique.
Outlined in machine quilting. To do this there is a layer of batting and a backing of calico so the front inside is very neat.
Instead of Lynette’s labrador I added a greyhound as these are for a raffle prize tomorrow in aid of GRWE. They are the charity I work for when I’m not blogging or making things. A few of the dogs they find a home for are in the link.
Here’s a quick shout out for tomorrow’s show.
