after a very funny conversation with my mum on the phone last night, the quilt she and i are making together will be called 'portholes'. she didn't know what glory hole meant, so i obliged by reading her her some racy stuff from google. she had no idea. haha. dad's useful contribution was "call it arseholes", but no, we decided, that's just plain rude. so, portholes it is, given that there are lots of, well, portholes type shapes in the quilt. and according to google, that's not known for anything other than a window in a sailing vessel, certainly nothing to do with public lavatories and willies, anyway.
above are a few examples of said porthole type shapes (more commonly known as circles, in certain areas of the world, i believe) it's been given to mum to stitch together then quilt...am seriously looking forward to it being finished.
