and I did say at the time
"I'm not sure if this is something I'll be doing lots of - I can see that it's a great travel project still I like my crochet for that."
Well two weekends ago when we visited Washington DC I didn't take my crochet, I took my coffins instead.
There you go, that's me on the train from NYC to DC, maybe somewhere around Philadelphia, and just look at the concentration on my face! That'll be the concentration on my face before my shocked expression at the public display of affection by a couple in the seats diagonally opposite from us that caused the whole carriage to take action against them and the guards to have them removed - and all this in the quiet carriage!!!
There wasn't much time for sewing on the trip but I did manage some and here's where I'm at now:
I started with one design in mind but as you can see I've decided to extend each line of coffins out a little. The other fabrics are Kaufman Essex Linens - Med Aqua and Sand - haven't decided what to make yet - maybe a cushion or a bag, we'll see but I do know I want to applique the coffins on to these linens.
I guess you could say I've been converted (again!) and guess what I'll be taking to Scotland with me?
