Welcome to day 3 of the Salt and Sand blog hop.
Many thanks to Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for her hard work organizing this fun blog hop.
When I decided to join in the fun of this blog hop, I wasn’t ready to make another quilt of any size, nor any other sizable project, so what to sew???
And I will mail them out to 5 of my followers.
When I think of salt and sand, I think of the ocean/sea and the beach.
And the ever present seagulls.
I always complain that I cannot draw. I did draw the seagull, but practically used up an entire eraser trying to make him look somewhat like a seagull.
Next came to mind a lighthouse. I couldn’t make the light light up but the lighthouse building glows-in-the-dark.
From there my mind traveled out to sea for a fish or a boat. What came to mind were those thieving salty sailors of the high seas...Pirates.
The skull and cross bones on the pirate hat glow-in-the-dark.
Can’t have pirates on the high seas without a ship.
This ship has already been in a battle...with me. The eyelets and I did not see eye to eye. It’s a battle ship...it should show some battle scars...right?
What’s a pirate or a pirate ship without a pirate parrot. He keeps his share of the booty close. Dare not to take his treasure!
What a fun time I had with this challenge theme!
