Elaine's Trunk Show - Part 2

It is sometimes difficult making decisions on just which wonderful goodies to feature in a Trunk Show, and that is certainly the case with Elaine's treasures.  Not only the volume of work but the variety.  To show as much as possible there are a number of collages, to get a larger view just pop your cursor on the pic and left click, a larger version of the photo will pop up for easier viewing and more detail.
In this collage the top two pics are of full size tablecloths worked in hardanger by Elaine, the cute tablecloth with the embroidered daffodils was done by Elaine's Mum many years ago, then there is a hardanger table runner and another smaller tablecloth, also worked in hardanger.  Now in one of those beautiful works there is a line missing.......kid you not!!, Elaine spotted it when we were taking the pics.......I thought she was pulling my leg, but eventually she made me see it, miniscule it is too!!
Elaine used 'Glenshee' Linen for her works which she thought had ceased to be, but looking for a little info, found that it is still alive and kicking, although the prices have increased somewhat.

Elaine enrolled in a class to do a Medallion quilt with Sonia Solly, a local tutor, knowing that she had to have a center piece, Elaine chose the little Pharoah tile but soon found the center had to be extended, with some help from Sonia this stunning  medallion quilt was created.

The hexagon quilt was started while Elaine was on a holiday, hand stitched and longarm quilted by Fiona from the Quilting Fairy.

Elaine also has many folk art paintings adorning the walls in her home, all having been exhibited and many winning prizes, there is also a lovely clock as well as a pair of cross stitched framed roses (bottom right pic)

These landscapes have quite a story, the bush hut was a raffle done by her tutor, and won by Elaine, she then went on to complete the 2 river scenes, both are in Shoalhaven N.S.W.

This lovely work is Elaine's favourite.

Elaine is busily working on 3 other quilts for family members, just awaiting borders and quilting.
A vibrant 'Golf' quilt,
A sailing themed quilt, for a sailor in the family.

And this navy and white quilt to be.

and the final pic - some more of Elaine's Folk Art creations, including just a few from her Christmas themed collection.
It was a real privilege to be a guest of Elaine and her Darling in their home and to view all the wonderful creations of this very talented lady.  Thank you Elaine. -A

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Whats up this is kinda of off topic but I
was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks alot :)

Hey. Sorry to trouble you but I happened to run across your blog and
noticed you are using the exact same theme as me.
The only issue is on my website, I'm unable to get the design and style looking like yours. Would you mind contacting me at: so I can get this figured out. By the way I have bookmarked your website: and will certainly be visiting often. Many thanks!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout
of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve
got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

Maybe you could space it out better?

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It's a very easy on
the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to
come here and visit more often. Did you hire
out a developer to create your theme? Outstanding work!

Superb website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the
same topics talked about here? I'd really love to be a part of group where I can get comments from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform
like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so
many choices out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thank you!

Hello. I was thinking about adding a website link back to your blog since both of our websites are based around
the same niche. Would you prefer I link to you using your website address: or web site title:
Blogger: BUDERIM PATCHWORK. Be sure to let me know at your earliest convenience.
Many thanks

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm
assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and
everything. But think about if you added some great pictures or video clips to
give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images
and clips, this blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
Amazing blog!

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with
hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of
hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods
to stop hackers?
