What have I made?


What have I made?, originally uploaded by Lynne @ Lilys Quilts.

I spent hours today making this and asked Jack what he thought it was - a grandfather clock. I asked Nigel and he thought it was a penis. Can anyone guess what it is supposed to be?

  2. I think it's supposed to be pretty. And it is. :D
    (and I'm a dork, hence the deleted comment.)

  3. My guess would be one of those lawn ornament things with the pedestal and shiny ball on top.

  4. Knitting needle holder?

    Whatever it is, it's sure pretty.

  5. I have no idea... Don't worry about this what Nigel said - my husband told me exactly the same when I was sewing dragonfly:)))

  6. Well I am trying really hard not to see it as a penis.... but it's difficult (I put hard first but thought better of it)to see anything else now!! It's very pretty though It looks like a lighthouse with the light shining at the top.

  7. Husband says penis or kaleidescope.

  8. It does look very phallic ... but I'm doubting you started out trying to make a fabric penis. I'm going with a wine bottle holder!

  9. The Lighthouse is a good guess. No clue but it's definitely not a penis that I'm familiar with! hehehe

  10. I am having the best laugh of the day reading your post and the comments. Can't wait to hear what it really is supposed to be. Could it be a pulpit?

  11. A letterbox to post letters into was my first thought, then I wondered about a lighthouse because of the fabric at the very top. I'll stick with letterbox

  12. yes, i immediately thought of an english mail box. well, i guess it would be a "mail box" if it were american.

  13. A skinny dalek, a toilet roll holder or I'm guessing something you would find in your kitchen, but definitely not in mine! Caviar cannister, quail's egg incubator... give up ... lady-toy!

  14. It looks like a monument or shrine...

  15. the most beautiful bollard I've ever seen?

    something to help you ride a horse backwards, perhaps? LOL -

  16. I'm with Jack, I thought a grandfather clock too.

  17. I'm seeing a torch!!! Sori! Jxo

  18. Seriously Lynne I don't know how you manage to cause such uproar every time you get creative ;) Postbox or light house for sure!

  19. I think it is a "guess your weight" or "fortune teller" that you found at the fairs.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think it might be a scale. A very pretty scale!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think #13 Chris is right...British mailbox!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would think a clock like Big Ben .. but it's not right. And I'm trying to see penis but it's just not happening for me. Gads, I want to know!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I saw a post box straight off. Must say I'm concerned at the anatomy of some folks' husbands if this is similar!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hrmmm. Phallic references aside, it looks like a sundial to me.

    ReplyDelete
  25. A very proper and upright..English letterbox?!?!?!?!? It's very pretty whatever it is!

    ReplyDelete
  26. post box? I didn't read what the other's have said. I'm not seeing a penis. I am either very disturbed or not disturbed enough...

    ReplyDelete
  27. i didn't read the other comments, so maybe it's already said, but my first guess was a public fountain/water dispenser (ummm...you know what i mean? those oldfashioned things standing in parks).
    a penis? nope, i don't see it :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. LOL....well; I saw grandfather clock first...but I think I like Nigel's idea..hahaha....you can cause such a riot Lynne.....good for you; can't wait to find out what it is....lol

    ReplyDelete
  29. is it a postbox, well its really pretty

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm guessing no on the penis . . . It sort of looks like a two-dimensional sundial to me (I know, it takes some imagination to see it, but I've got plenty of that). Otherwise, I'm going to agree with some of the others and say a mailbox of the traditional variety. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. lol!!! I so needed a laugh today! I have no idea what it is, but love the fabrics on it!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think it looks like a sundial!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think its one of those science thingys, you know, the thing that you touch and the electricity follows your touch and your hair stands on end? Though it is much more amusing to think of you designing a patchwork prick - talk about your modern / contemporary quilting!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Is it a glue stick or a tube of lipstick? I would think either of these items would be straight where the ball top begins. Maybe it's a roll-on bottle of deodorant. I'll keep thinking about it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Post box was my first thought too.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I've read all the comments. My initial thought was baptismal font, then garden sundial on a pedestal, but knowing Ayumi's theme for Ringo Pie, I think the letter box guesses are the right one. Jeez, Nigel.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It could be an aircraft control tower. I have to agree that it has a bit of a phallic aura.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Minding my own business...reading the blogs....just about spit out my drink.....
    and I have the flu so it hurts to laugh. From pulpit to penis, it must be somewhere in between.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It looks to me to be a fountain. It's beautiful!

  41. a lighthouse? That's the first thought. Maybe a decorative post of some sort? Are you crafting quilts of Grecian buildings again?

    ReplyDelete
  42. You, my dear, have made a whajingy. It's lovely and phallic and sort of out of whallack!

    ReplyDelete
  43. comments here are HYSTERICAL!!!! My guess is something on a pedestal - gazing ball??? birdbath??? sundial???

    ReplyDelete
  44. I thought letter box too

    ReplyDelete
  45. It looks like one of those Shake Weights!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hmmmm....I'm guessing a birdbath or garden fountain? These comments are pretty entertaining.

    ReplyDelete
  47. hmmm.. it's definitely a parking meter... or a salt shaker...

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm going to guess 1/2 of the set of a mortar and pestle. So then I asked my husband without even discussing the other comments and he also said penis without any other thought!

  49. I think that it looks sort of like a parking meter as well. But I'm betting it's a post box that I'm not familiar with because it's probably for Ayumi. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Definately a good old fashioned letter box....like the one outside my house.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow, what a fantastic response, I will have to come back and see what it really is.... I thought at first glance - A sundial or a water fountain.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh shoot - I was about to keep it clean and say 'a sundial or water fountain' when I noticed that Diannajessie beat me to it - and on second LONG look I'm going with post box now
    Sometimes we NEED to drag our minds up from the nether regions (only sometimes thought) ;0)

  53. I think it's a speaker cover for your stereo. I can't wait to see your post to tell us what it is.

    ReplyDelete
  54. one of those old-fashioned post boxes which used to be red??

    ReplyDelete
  55. My first thought was the tardis, I'm not exactly sure what a tardis looks like but as no one else seems to have mentioned it I will go with that!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hee Hee. i thought it looked like an oriental version of a postbox.
    IF it is a penis, then it is covered in a beautiful fabric condom!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Sorry, but I'm a registered nurse and I've seen a LOT of peni (is that plural for penis? I'm not sure penises is a word? LOL).

    There is NO way that this looks like a penis!!

    :)
