World Beach

“What? Ikea, on a Saturday – you must be mad!”

But it wasn’t that bad, once you know which secret doors take you directly to the checkout. The bonus was bumping into Sue Lawty in the entrance.

Sue is a wonderful bundle of energy and inspiration whose interests start with textiles and spread out through texture, pattern and colour to lead, stone and light.

She told me of her latest project: WORLD BEACH where we are all invited to pop down to our local piece of coastline and arrange all* the stones lying thereon in order of size, colour or taste.

When you’ve done this you can put a photograph of your piece on Google Earth which is pretty sexy in itself.

*people living near shingle beaches are advised to take a sleeping bag.
