Here is another in the trivet series...I made the design while the train coming home from Ohio was stopped to let passengers off...it was night and I watched the cars on the other side of the gate deciding whether they wanted to stay till the train left, or turn around and go another way...Life is so full of intersections.
After being home awhile, I made this little kitty coaster, called Cat in Recession:
Then, after I made that, I was walking in the neighborhood and saw this kitty in someone's window:
The timing of that startled me...it seemed like everything had happened backwards. That's why I'm including this last picture...the train has to back into the Denver station. I was in the last car: here is the conductor guiding the train backwards into the station, using her walkie-talkie to stay in touch with the front of the train, and making sure the switches were all going in the right direction.
