I love the sea. Mr Nifty and I plan to move to live by the sea one day, but for now we're just visitors, walking along the shore looking for doubloons and other treasures (what is a doubloon, anyway? I expect I'll recognise one when I find it)
Last week we picked up weathered driftwood from the high tide line at Rye (seen here on my kitchen tablecloth!)
I'm not *quite* sure what I'm going to do with it yet. I've been knitting seascapes (well, why not?) and I'm considering making a frame with pieces of the wood ad then somehow lacing the knit between the wood - in my head, it'll be like the way a trampoline mat is suspended between the metal supports (but vertcial!)
My other idea is to make (or buy) some box frames and fit the knit into a box. This box isn't the right size (owing to not having planned this in advance!) but I'm imagining extending the "beach" section along the bottom "shelf" and maybe making it more 3D. What do you think?
*finally discovered why I bought those tiny sea beads!*
