Oh Chris, your seagull story reminds me of one of my own that I won't bore you with.  I will, however, just mention that seagull poop on a child's back sticks like glue ... even with buckets of beach water and and a beach full of sand for scrubbing ... haha ... xo

We have seagulls nesting every year on the roof of the doctors bungalow next door. When the chicks are very small the adults are so protective of them that they screech loudly at us as we walk down the drive and occasionally try to dive bomb us if we’re in the back garden!  They also wait until the window cleaner has been to poop on the windows! I remember when the grandkids were small we were watching the sea lion display at the Welsh Mountain Zoo and a seagull pooped all over my black blazer, they thought it was hilarious.

This makes me feel quite glad I live 40 miles inland from the coast, Marion!

How wonderful to have sponsorship for the blanket and then to be given free rein to design such a beautiful creation.  The child that gets this blanket will be very lucky indeed!

Thank you, Claire.

What a wonderful experience to lighten a lengthy journey, Chris. Nature at its sweetest.  :))

This is a special blanket Patricia…so many of our children have never seen the sea and what a lovely story of Chris’s to tell them about the seagull. 

This is a stunning blanket, Patricia, in gorgeous colours and patterns.

Goodness, I guess I'm losing it over here!  I know I saw your incredible blanket, Patricia ... I even commented on it ... at least I thought I did.  I'm just going back over all the creations so far this month and am absolutely loving this one.  Your colour combination is amazing and your design is stunning.  Your cousin must be thrilled with what you've done ... xo  

I think we all got a bit carried away with the seagulls, Gloria!

That is such a lovely blanket - well done!!!

A pink owl on a pink square, I think it fits this month’s theme and colour of the month….
