Murder on the Orient Express Toile de Jouy
I really love Agatha Christie and adore Poirot! (see hercule and burgh ). I decided to do a fairly specific toile dedicated to one of my absolute fave tales Murder on the Orient Express . The 1974 film version has probably the best film cast ever. Glorious stuff. (p.s. I took out the New York Times newspaper header)

Congratulations!! Wonderful design!
Congrats on the top-ten placement......such a great design!
thanks so much Julie :) xxx
Brilliant design Sharon! It has a lovely vintage look and the repeat works so well!
thanks so much Su! Oh I'd love to do Evil under the Sun... Death on the Nile! Lots of fun scene opportunities :) It's a time thing with a toile lol. I'm glad you like the colouring. Black and white didn't feel right for this xxx
Great approach! I especially like the integration (and choice!) of the pieces of text - that made this design stand out for me, together with the sepia tones and the subject matter. This will be a must for Agatha Christie fans (maybe the first in a series?)

Thanks SO much Katarina! I very much doubt it lol but it's lovely of you to say xxx
Fantastic design!!!Fingers crossed for the first place:)))xxxx
I thank you for your considered comment druzyhaze :)
i like the graphics you've created and feel that all elements are well balanced, and I like the use and placement of the knives as visual links. I wish "The New York Times" was not placed so boldly in the scene; since it's so iconic as a brand name, it makes me think it's a fabric for a New York Times tote bag. I think if that logo was minimized to the width of the two newspaper photos, the knife motif adjusted to fill the empty space, and the gold "Orient Express" stamp were placed slightly lower and apart from the group and train, it would be an excellent repeat.
awww thanks Melanie! thanks Claire! (sorry I thanked Rhonda on phone and didn't see your comments till now) xxx
thanks so much Rhonda :D xxx
