These are the latest three pieces that are going to make up my Seashore exhibit at the show in Bridport that opens at the end of next week. From top to bottom are - Selworthy, Porlock Weir, and Lynmouth West. It is going to be in a linear arrangement like the strand running along the seashore.

Seashore pieces for Bridport exhibition

Stitch patterns are based on the measurements of ridges and stripes taken from shells etc and I've tried to capture the subtle nuances in colour. Pebbles, shells, sea glass and other items were collected from different beaches starting at Severn Beach near the lower Severn Bridge. It has been really interesting to see how the range of items changes from beach to beach as one travels down the Severn Estuary. For this exhibition pieces relate to our journey as far as Woolacombe in Devon though we have visited beaches and collected items down to Padstow so far and I want to progress this work further in the future.
