So here we are once again, another year down the track and the Festival for 2012 setup has begun.
Bev getting the Medieval section put together.
Ashleigh from the ABC interviewing Bev for the Saturday radio. Thank you Ashleigh, many people heard the wonderful spiel and came for a gander at the show!
So, all is set up now ready for the big weekend!
This section of photos are the "Sheds". All are lovely and a delight to look at. Most of the Sheds are 1/12th scale except for the Outback Shed - 1/24th or close to and the Shed House also close to 1/24th.

Marie's Mans Shed!
And so we begin with David and Valerie's St George and the Dragon - unfortunately the Dragon won this round :( and poor St George winged his way off to heaven.

We had a row of Terraced Houses/shops put together by four members.
The first is Pam's - with Miniature Dollhouse Shop on the ground floor.
The fourth is Ariennes house with Scottish Shop below.
The gorgeous little suitcase was made by Rosalie. Rosalie travels a lot - but I guess by this case she doesn't take much with her!! hahaha (1/12th scale)
The next group of houses are 1/144th scale (eg small!) They were either kits or patterns made up by the various owners.
The next two 'houses' are owned by Maureen and Judy and are 1/48th scale.
The next few houses are 1/24th scale and owned by David.
Inside, at the back, there is a lady making the yummy looking delicacies!Clementines Tea Room. 1/12th scale
