Scatterday S

Fruit - Strawberry fabrics - didn't realise I had so many! Stitched fruit Salad blocks and a Strawberry on top of my dessert from dinner out with the girls Wednesday night.
Things that make you itch - Strong Smelling flowers! Visited my friend Jill for a coffee Thursday and her house is full of flowers, especially lilies. Her mum died a week ago. Anyhow, I had to move outside as my eyes itched dreadfully!
Letter S is made from a very useful (now) quilting tool called the Flexible Memory Curve. Maybe I need to use it more - the flexible memory part, anyhow!
Gold - written out in magnetic letters on the Fisher Price Schoolhouse that saw light of day after 25 years for Banjo's visit.
Many years ago Dad gave my brother, sister and I three glass jars to choose one from. Inside was a scrunched up parcel of newspaper. I chose mine and was the lucky duck as I got the Gold!In the mid 1800's, My ancestor - Dad's grandfather, Ludwig Bardenhagen came to Australia via America and New Zealand in his search for gold. He ended up in Tasmania, but later went to Western Australia mining. Which now explains why my father is so obsessed about the stuff. The photo is of our Super Child
My shiney nugget is pictured between 2 gold coins. The last picture is ore, the stuff gold comes from.

What a Super selection!

Liz Needle said...

Clever choices, Fran. Trust you to be different. Is your gold worth a small fortune?

Michelle Watters said...

You are getting too clever for me. And I think you are the only one with real gold. Well done to you.
