I have missed 2 Treasure Tuesdays! The last 2 weeks have just flew by. I was determined not to forget today.
This is sort of dumb I know, but I've kept this cane for 49 years. It is from a pink sparkly Kewpie doll bought for the 5 year old me at our 'Ekka'. The doll fell apart years ago, but I just could not throw away the cane. It hangs tucked away in my wardrobe. It's over a metre long and would have been taller than me.
I must explain what the 'Ekka' is. It is the 'Exhibition' or to give it its more formal title - the Royal Queensland Agricultural and Industrial Association Show - a fair on a big scale! It has just finished its 10 day run, always in August, of course.
I have some other Ekka treasures I must dig out.
I've been quilting a boy baby quilt and have also sewn a girl baby quilt top. No pictures yet, but I'll do that soon.
Take care everyone.
PS - I forgot to put the link in to Clare's Treasure Tuesdays.
