Out of Frying Pan into the Fire!

The mystery items from the "What am I' competition were the bottom of frying pans! These magical images were via one of my favorite blogs Junkculture. The clue was a link to Junkculture in my side bar!
The photographer responsible is Christopher Jonasson, whose investigation of worn out frying pans is titled Devour. Christopher says, "Devour is a poetic comment on the downfall of the world as we know it. The photographs investigate a series of frying-pans and the wear and tear they have encountered over the course of their lives."
The winner is Julianne from Sister Outlaws who, after having a few stabs including door knobs and darning mushrooms finally deduced the correct answer.Julianne has chosen this Colour Kitten brooch as her prize. Yay !

It's Getting HOT In Here!

<span class=
Craft and Philanthropy collide in this fantastic exhibition at Open Draw Art Textiles and Learning Centre.
The Hottie Cover Challenge Exhibition opened last night and there was two rooms FULL of amazing hand made Hot Water Bottle Covers for sale , with all money raised going to The Margaret Pratt Foundation.
There are lots of red dots and donations already which is excellent. I know there will be some very grateful cold toes in the coming weeks!
Here are some Hotties from the show. It's running till July 24th and well worth a visit if you live in Melbourne.

My purchase for the night was the fantastic Test Pattern Hottie Cover by Lynne Coleman of Sister Outlaws.
