The Sutton Hoo helmet/vessel/box/thing, that is.
It’s an Anglo-Saxon coffee cosy. Obviously the Anglo-Saxons loved their coffee so much they were buried with ceremonial coffee cosies.
The tree on top might be Yggdrasil -although I may be getting my cultural references confused.
[One of the advantages of using wire in the machine cord is that it stands up by itself, and you can make
silly interesting shapes with it.]
I have now got the right sort of wire to put in the spool of my machine – at least, I hope it’s the right type, I haven’t tried it yet.
I have also made another [possibly final] unidentifiable archaeological artefact, with the ‘help’ of a book on Scoubidous. [Once I’d worked out that in the instructions, when it said ‘left’ it meant ‘right’ and when it said ‘pink’ it meant ‘green’ – and translated those colours into the two types or coppery cord i was using …]
You may remember that I said that, although I was dissatisfied with the architectural drawing/butterfly piece, I wasn’t going to do another one.
The fabric printing experiments fell out of a basket in the clutter I call a workroom, and this one said ‘Quilt me’. So I am.
So far, it’s looking good.
Still no drawing, though.
I Absolutely LOVE the ceremonial coffee cosy! and the tree on top totally makes it.
oh, please tell me where to do the archeology so I can find one for me. (will you do a sort of pattern/tutorial?)
I really love the directions you take sometimes. I sure hope the tutor does.

word verification - insdeep...some relation to Helmsdeep?... thought connections to Tolkien's tree in the 'White City'?
