It’s been some time since I posted on my blog about the Seaside Santa, but I haven’t been idle.  In fact, my fab finisher has just completed him and is taking him for a ride to the photography studio soon. I started with the seahorse–for some reason I have an affinity for them these days.  Next up was the starfish, done entirely in beads.  It reminds me of many field trips to the Monterrey Bay Aquarium–watching the otters frolic, learning about the coastal Pacific environment and watching children splash and play with the sea creatures in the touching pond.  Starfish were among the creatures to be handled.  An odd side comment–the aquarium had (has?) a lovely restaurant that served wonderful sushi.  Interesting…. -Michele
