Darling Harbour Fun Part 2

So much fun...so much inspiration...need more money & time!
We shopped...we talked...we kept going back to our favourites...amitie...Patchwork on Central Park...Craft Queen...Kelani (stunning stuff)...and Material Obsession.
Material Obsession...always a favourite...great to catch up with Kathy & her fabulous team...Kate, Sarah & the other helpful friendly ladies there. Great to see the Sue Ross BOM completed...admire & resist the urge to sign up for another BOM...but succumb to oh so many gorgeous fabrics...and come home with a happy head brimming with ideas...even for personalising my last block of the BOM!
DD bought some great fabrics from Kelani for a dress...love that trim!
She is off to Rome & Paris with her band late in the year, so we found great fabric for a scarf at amitie...Paris & music notes...perfect! The spot is a fine cord...snuggly!
I bought this funky spot from Kelani to do a Barcelona skirt...I just need to stop sleeping really!
This one just "spoke" to me...oh dear!
Last night I just sat & played with hexies...I have done a couple of flowers but I think I will go with a scrappy charm look...what do you think?
Sadly I cannot post pics of the quilts (as per Quilters Guild photographic policy), but look in the backgrounds of my pics from yesterday for some glimpses or pop over to Jean who has a great collage. Don't forget about my giveaway!

I've been enjoying looking at your loot, I love anything with dots. I think hexes and clamshells are big this year, so much fun seeing them all over the place.
Congratulations on 200 posts and your wedding anniversary!
