Busy Week and a Giveaway

We have been very busy packing up everything for our first show of the year - the Australasian Quilt Convention. We love this show as it is for dedicated quilters and there is such a buzz for all four days. Please come and say hi if you are at the Show.

We had so much new stuff to pack and are very excited to see if it hits the right note with quilters.

Our house now looks bereft as nearly every room had stuff in it - now it just looks unkempt. I think a good vacuum and dust would not go astray.

Having emptied everything out always makes us look at what is left and Peter has spent the last hour shredding years of paperwork that has lain dormant for far too long. I have relabelled pattern shelves and thrown out stuff which made me cringe to look at it so I feel refreshed.

I have also started Module 5 of my City & Guilds which is always exciting. This one is on Form and here are some examples I have found around our house today.
There are 12 images on this mosaic.

I will give a metre of my hand dyed fabric to the first person who can guess all 12.

Lisa, am I to guess what these things are?

If so, then here's my stab at it, l-r, top to bottom:

1. cement building thing (some Aussie thing a Yank wouldn't recognize)
2. the bubble stuff that comes in Amazon boxes
3. canisters
4. floor lamp
5. bowl, large, probably like for fruit or something
6. teapot
7. vase, ceramic
8. the inside of a thermostat
9. pine cone
10. candle orb
11. terracotta planter
12. garden sculpture

hi Lisa

There are some interesting things in your pictures. Here are my guesses. Don't know all of them but they may help someone else with their list.

1. I have no idea - looks like it is concrete and under the house somewhere. It doesn't help living in Australia.
2. Plastic shower curtain
3. Wooden boxes
4. Uplight floor lamp
5. Lovely metal bowl
6. Tea pot
7. Egg shaped ornament
8. the inside of something made by Sony???
9. Seed pod from a banksia or hakea
10. Candle in glass bowl
11. Teracotta pot
12. garden sculpture

Thanks for the fun
