All finished and ready to set sail!

Here is an update on yesterday's unfinished fleet, here they are looking a bit prettier and more decorative! (Click on the photo for a better look!) This big order is going to a lovely shop in Holkham on the Norfolk coast, called Bringing The Outside In. It has won several awards and has a fab website for all you coast lovers out there - and I love that you put your virtual shopping in a bucket rather than a basket!

I think this little one is my favourite.

I'll miss my fleet - even from the back they look nice on the windowsills!
These boats will not be available online, so if you are ever visiting the beautiful north Norfolk coast, pop in to the shop and let me know how they look!

  1. Oh, how I do love them. It's a pity that they will sail to another coast. But what's about the whale from your last post. Can I buy it?
    Your work is very clever!

  2. Oh Kirsty, you are so talented :-)
    They look absolutely wonderful and I would love to have a whole fleet of them sitting in my lounge window!
    Now go put your feet up and have a rest....
    Sending you sunshine!

  7. They look brilliant. I do sometimes get up to North Norfolk (it is the next county up) and would love to see your little boats for real :)

  8. Well done on the big order Kirsty!
    As usual, I have fallen in love with all your work and am now working out whether we can squeeze in a hasty visit to Norfolk to get one... ;D

  12. Oh they're wonderful - toot toot. I remembered I have a piece of driftwood in my garden. I picked it up thinking I might make something with it - I never have. I think it's the back of an old bandstand chair. Would you like it in exchange for Mr Pipefish?

  15. Agreed. They do look absolutely gorgeous all grouped together. I'm sure they'll get snapped up very quickly by some lucky buyer in Norfolk.
