Looking through old travel journals I found the one relating to our first
and only trip to Kerala. That was fourteen years ago. Definitely
time for a return visit.
First stop then was to the tailor's shop for some hand made shirts.
We had to go down the road to the fabric shop. What a choice.
When Keith returned to pick up the goodies I requested that
he asked the tailor for off cuts, and he did, despite a few
grumbles as he set off. The tailor probably thought we we
mad, but I did end up with a bag of scraps.
I made this laptop quilt with every last little bit
of fabric. Over the years it has been used as
a comforter on cold nights, or just 'because'.
Here's the back, it is tie quilted, which makes it
a very soft little quilt. The backing fabric is
Madras cotton, a very fine muslin. I had quite
forgotten about Madras cotton, must add
to my shopping list.
So, cupboards closed, workroom shut down.
Time to pack. Next post should
be from India.
