My knitted English seascape is laced to a piece of natural driftwood, upcycled from the shore at Rye, East Sussex, UK. I've knitted striped beach huts and sewn them on to the sandy beach, then added some shell charms and embroidered a few wheeling seagulls. I've added a hanging loop of "sky" yarn. Listen carefully - you might hear the sea!

One of a kind, as of course no two pieces of driftwood are going to be the same.

Final photo shows real English beach huts at Tankerton, Kent.

Actual knit is around 9.5 inches by 6 inches (24cm x 15cm), maximum dimensions (including wood) around 10 inches by 8 (26cm x 20cm)
