Peacocks at the Guild.

I'm happy to report that my presentation today went over without a hitch - the power point set up worked perfectly, my linens looked good displayed on the boards, and I had lots of nice comments.  Best of all, my niece Susan and two bloggy friends were also present - thanks girls!
I didn't have a chance to take detailed pictures of the display, not even one of me with it!  But Mel and Christine took some, and they have promised to post their photos on their respective blogs.
Here are the pictures I took...darn camera, these still look wishy washy...

Below - Christine and Mel on the right, talking to another Guild member.

 A tablecloth draped over the top, Lakshmi's peacock on the right, my CQ block under that, and four versions of one Semco pattern in differerent colourways on the left.

 Small cloth at the top left, pillow slips, and on the lower right a runner.

 Small table cloths at the top, beaded shawl underneath and a runner on the bottom right.

 Table runners (the Americans called some of these  "piano scarves" on their eBay sites), and a cushion cover on the bottom right.

Your collection looks great hanging out there! I am glad it all went well for you. Hopefully you will get to do this many more times in the future. I have sent you an email my friend.
