This year, the EQA exhibition in Birmingham, UK , in August is called Circles of Friends. This is my entry, which I sent to the annual meeting of the Norwegian Quilters Association last weekend. Thanks a lot to those of you who voted for my circle!! - it will be one of 12 circles representing Norway in Birmingham ( I've already booked the tickets!!)

The Irish Patchwork Society

I have a good yahoo friend in Dublin, Ireland. We are both members of a fibre group called Art4Mail. Miriam is the president of the Irish Patchwork Society, and she has told me about the society's 30th anniversery this year. To celebrate, they are running a postcard exhibition - it will be on display in the Botanical Garden in Dublin in August. They want both national and international entries, so these are the two postcards I've sent them. Postcards will not be returned, but sold in aid of an Irish Breast Cancer Charity. The deadline for entries is mid June.
If you want to send a postcard, you'll find all the details - theme, address and so on - here. The first card is pansies from my garden, trapped under organza. The second one is silk fibres felted on wool, and with some hand embroidery.

This and That

Where do you keep your mp3-player in your handbag?? I've just made some of these and found them quite handy..... And where do you keep all your small items in the hotel room when travelling?? I found the pattern for this travel tray here. Quite handy as well, and as you can see from the photo, it takes up no space at all in the suitcase.
