Man Packing: Four books, a washbag and a big pack of coffee chucked in any which way. 'I don't think this case is going to be big enough for my clothes.'
Girl amended man packing.
Somebody is going to have to learn something before we travel for three months, that's all I am saying!
Before Festival I got an email from Australia from Lisa Walton asking if she could mail 'a quilt' to me and could I forward it on to the show. Of course. So a few days later I come home late from work and the package is there. I investigate it's contents at once and when Dennis comes in to the lounge with a tray of chilli and rice for my tea I have it draped over the sofa and am standing there going, "Oh My God, she didn't tell me it was that quilt!"
"Why. whats special about it?"
"It's Bushfire Sunset. It wins prizes. It's worth ten thousand dollars."
He steps back with the chilli,"Get it out of our house. Soon."
So I did. And it won second prize. Which of course was less to do with Lisa and Nic Bridges work and all to do with the way I pinned the paper labels to the back of the quilt.
I will blog more about festival but not now because along with a pile of shopping I seem to have brought back a full head cold. Yuk!
