Inspired by the elements, the gwers that I am currently working on, and Badger Bob's "February Seminar - Meditation, A guide to the very basics" which can be found at viewtopic.php?f=326&t=35195 The shell is crochet over an old (uselessly lumpy as a bed pillow) cushion. The height is perfect for me to sit cross-legged or sit in a kneeling position. Next project: a flat cushion for under my head during "laying down" meditations.
Thanks for the comments everyone. It was one of those projects that once I get the idea, it builds creative energy until I reach the point of "I HAVE TO make this, NOW!" I was very pleased with the result. Not all of my "NOW" projects end with good results
