The deep blue sea........ the place to be if you are are as keen on surfing as my Surfer Boy. He has a wetsuit tan, sea ulcers on his feet and sun bleached hair from too many weeks of continuous surfing, 2 or 3 times every day. You could say he is addicted, he often wears a favourite T-shirt that states 'Surfing is my Religion' and I can vouch for that being the truth. His middle name means 'born beside the seaside' and we never realised how much of a bearing on his life the sea would have. It is however keeping him very fit and out of most of the mischief young teenage boys can get up to. Wish I had the wash board ab muscles he has! This series of local surf and surfing photos I bought at a local beach side market and have just framed them up so I can bribe Surfer Boy to remove all the surf and surfing posters from his bedroom walls. Also hope to hang a really bright convergence quilt I made a while back that was inspired by Ricky Tims book below, it echoes the colours of the surf and sun, hope he appreciates my effort.

The quilt is just gorgeous and definately has a ocean feel to it. Hopefully your son appreciates it like you said.
The pics look great in the frames you've chosen, you'll have to take a photo of the room once the pics and the quilts are up on the walls.

the photos are great.

the quilt is amazing. my mother in law lives in the barossa valley and her neighbour (across the road) is a quilter. she was working on this type of quilt when emily and i were invited to look at her work. her fabric was an underwater theme - quite beautiful too.
