The one below is sunrise, looking out over the Pacific Ocean. The sand is white and crunches between your toes, the air is fresh and I find the sound of the waves crashing in very soothing.
The beach goes for miles, something like 55 of them! I am so lucky to have this in my area.
I took this photo for the observation deck on QI. This is looking North to Brisbane.
So when people ask me where do I get my ideas from, I say it is easy as there is so much around me to inspire. We have had a long hot summer, and as April approaches so does the cooler weather. Easter is usually the last of the summer holiday makers, and the beaches are usually packed over this time. This is the sandsculpture on the beach at Surfers.I have been working on a naive "At the Beach" crochet series for the last few months.
So meet Kylie, Nicole and Kathy the Surfie Chicks. These are the girls who play in the sun sand , sea and surf. They have a life, and enjoy it greatly. I call this Aussiegurumi! I find it interesting that a word like "amigurumi" has crept into our language. This is the term for small crocheted dolls and toys. So I figure my Little dolls must be Aussiegurumi! My grandfather, who fought in World War II in Papua New Guinea keeping the you know who from invading Australia would be horrified. Interesting how history passes and time heals.
And Kylie, Nicole and Kathy are such legendary Aussie chicks I figured they deserved a day at the beach... I will let you work out where these great names come from.
Now of cause you are asking, where are the boys? Well the surfie blokes, and kids and mums and dads are on the way.
So these Surfie chicks have a few accessories, a sun visor, beach towel, sun hat and beach wrap
I even gave Kathy a navel stud seeing this is the go these days. She also has shades of 10 with the braided hair.
Thanks for looking. Keep an eye out for the rest of the mob at the beach.... aaah its fun being eccentric.
It is a bit of a change from the wild creatures I have been working on~!(c) crochetroo not to be copied or imitated.
