Contest and giveaway – name my fence!
Have you noticed that most of my finished quilt photos are taken on the same background? It’s mostly out of necessity– during the hours that have good light for quilt pics I don’t usually have an assistant who’s more than four feet tall. I actually stole the idea from Cath to use hangers with clips instead of waiting for an adult to volunteer and get bossed around.
Meet my fence. It’s a nice fence. Fence is an odd word, isn’t it? Fence fence fence. Fence holds the quilts straight and Fence is nice and tall. Fence is a shade of orangey brown that I sometimes wish was a little more neutral. Despite that, I love Fence for being a wonderful photo assistant– he/she isn’t mouthy or demanding. Fence works for free. Fence gets lovely light.
Here’s the thing: I’ve decided that Fence needs a name. I owe him/her that much. But I don’t know what to name him/her.
Here’s a little insight into my strange brain. I like to name things– my first car was named Wally. Others have been Wallina, Stealth and Monty. I’ve had a gerbil named Cappy, a teddy bear named Autumn, a dog named Gonzo and two children, Eli and Miles. Our wifi network is BeepBoop. Sometimes I name people I don’t know, like Blanket Lady (shockingly that’s not me) and Library Loretta. But this one is stumping me. I need help.
I’ve also been looking for a good excuse for a giveaway. Will you help me name my fence? Leave a comment on this post or on Instagram (I’m @melintheattic) with the hashtag #melintheatticfence. I’ll pick a winner on June 21.
I have one set of four fat quarters for my favorite name and one for an entry that I’ll pick at random. I’ll give the winner first dibs and maybe throw in a few other goodies. I had too much fun picking out these summery lovelies at Rock Paper Scissors.
Thanks for the help. Now have fun, be creative, and get naming!
