Passages - I think
These two are going to be my next quilt - they are the building blocks. Sailing ships and the mouth of the Derwent River, Tasmania, Australia!
This is where my Great, Great Grand Mother found herself when she was 18 years old. She was "dark of hair and blue of eye and sallow of skin" and 4 foot 10 inches. Her crime was "highway robbery"
She sailed into this river but never saw it from south! She died at the age of 102 - she committed suicide - she walked into a train - she had had enough. That is the story my Mother has told me and I believe it. I can go look at the paper work I've inherited but I don't need to!
This is "Passage" She will be finished by the beginning of December.
