Hi, fellow CT'ers! I hope you're soaking up the last rays of summer. Here, in North Yorkshire, it's turned rather wet and cold but last week was lovely.
Again, using Scarborough as my inspiration, I decided to focus on the beach. The only thing is, I forgot to include all the endless seagulls here, there and everywhere, actually. Ha-ha. There is this herring gull that my brother-in-law particularly doesn't like — no wonder — it screams like a strangled something or other almost every morning and can even be a little frightening. Oh dear me. Well, as it is, I'm not terribly a seaside type person but love the idea of it at least, especially those Cornish ice cream 99's so dearly loved as a child. Now, if only I could get a ride all the way down to Cornwall but that will have to be for another trip!
How did your patterns go? Time to check them out. Below, you'll find the initial drawing which I then repeated. I was kind of hoping too that the waves might even remind one of clouds perhaps? Hmm... Well, regardless, they almost line up seamlessly. Not bad for my very first pattern attempt. :)
