Toni at Make It Perfect is encouraging us to get our auctions up an running, so here we go.
I am auctioning this piece of art, made from a cotton artist canvas, quilting fabric, with some acrylic paint and sand paste for texture.
This little canvas is 22 x 27 x 2 cm (8.5 x 10.5 x 0.75 inches) in size.
I will pay for postage anywhere in the world.
The auction will run here, from this very blog post. (To see an example of how it goes, see Toni’s own auction here).
Folks leave a comment with their bid amount and their contact email. Bids need to increase a minimum of a dollar.
All bids are in Australian Dollars (AUD). You can get an up-to-the-minute exchange rate here, but to get an idea:
The auction will start from now and will finish midnight on 24 January. I am going to run it on France time, otherwise my brain will hurt. To make this easier for international visitors, I’ve put clock and calendar widgets on the right that show the date/time in France.
I hope I haven’t forgotten anything, please ask if you have any questions.
All the fabrics used are commercial quilting cottons from my stash. I started this with the intention of using only scraps, but ended up cutting into lots of fresh yardage because I was just enjoying seeing it come together. And I only had to cut a teeny piece (surely it can’t hurt).
Three of my Provence fabrics made it in, too, for those of you wanting a little bit of France on your wall:
My brother has escaped relatively unscathed. They had water through the ground floor of their home, which they had built in to make a guest room. All the main living and sleeping areas upstairs are fine, and they have power, which is great. And of course, most importantly of all, they are all safe.
No word yet on our home from the agency we are renting it through, but we are holding firm to the ‘no news is good news’ adage!
Thinking of everyone in Brissie and the long, painful clean up they are about to undertake.
