Here's a few to share with you.
My friend Lynn Roberts is a very talented ceramic artist. She is sympathetic to my beach hut obsession - here's some of her latest creations. If you like what you see you can find her at many events around the Sussex area and her goods are stocked at Miss Mabel's Magnificent Emporium in Burgess Hill www.facebook.com/pages/Miss-Mabels-Magnificent-Emporium/201793089916559
Another talented artist friend, Linda Brand, created this beautiful coloured pencil drawing of the beach huts at Mudeford. It's currently up for a prize in the Best of British Drawing Competition.

When my daughter and I visited the Brighton Art Fair I was very drawn to the amazing work of Gillian Bates. I had to look very carefully before I realised that this was textile art, the drawing being done with thread. I've been a fan ever since. Gillian is based on the south coast so her work has a distinctly seaside feel. Have a look at her Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/gillianbates or contact her for a commission.
Second is a shop aptly named 'ilovemybeachhut' - an emporium of cushion covers - this is my favourite:
So how about my own beach hut creations? Some time ago I was very keen on cross stitch and made this collection of little huts from a Mary Hickmott pattern in New Stitches magazine. Luckily, Laura Ashley had this brilliant house-shaped frame at the time which suited them perfectly. Inspired by all these marvellous creations, I'm off to make some beach hut pictures of my own.
Let's hope we have some more beach type weather this summer so we can enjoy the sun, sea and sand but if we don't it's good to know there's no shortage of lovely beach hut images to view to remind us of what we should be experiencing.
Lots of love till next time.
